When it rains it pours...another giveaway coming your way today! (Results from the last one will be announced later today, too!)
You may have heard that McDonald's is upping its coffee game with the new McCafe line of products that include iced and hot lattes, mochas and cappuccinos. Can't say that I'm a big McD's customer, but I can see the wisdom in downgrading from a $5 Starbucks latte to a more wallet friendly Mickey D's version.
A million years ago I spent a summer selling Folger's Coffee for Procter & Gamble. One of the most interesting things I learned is that the average American really does like their coffee pretty mild, and it's only been Starbucks's marketing genius that has convinced people that they like more intense brews. That said, I can imagine that in a blind taste test, McCafe might actually perform far better than fast food haters would expect.
Want to try it for yourself? I've got coupon packs to try the whole lineup of McCafe coffees. Write me firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me where you get your favorite brew right now, and I'll send you McCafe freebies! Don't forget to include your mailing address in the email.
