Look at me, I’m in a coffee commercial!

In early November, Van Houtte invited 6 top bloggers from around Canada to come visit Old Montreal. It was a visit to have them experience Van Houtte coffee, and the charm of the city. ~Van Houtte

Van Houtte : Mommy Moment

You have already had a sneak peak from my Van Houtte Getaway.

Now is the exiting part, I get to show you a “commercial”~ Van Houtte Coffee Getaway: Meet the bloggers! AND I’M IN IT!!!

It really does speak for itself…

Featuring some amazing new friends (The 6 bloggers featured)

I would love to hear your thoughts on Van Houtte Coffee, you already heard that I thought it was only gas station coffee, was I ever wrong!ย  I have a new appreciation for Van Houtte Coffee. If you have not already discovered your coffee profile, take a moment…it will change the way you choose your coffee!

Thanks again to Van Houtte for this amazing getaway.

***After this post I was interviewed on the Van Houtte,ย  C! The Coffee Blog.***


  1. that is so fun!!!!

  2. Hey! That must have been SO fun!
    I thought the same thing – gas station coffee :))
    I took the profile though, and learned that they have organic fair trade coffee. Fair trade is important to me, so I guess I can put Van Houtte on my list sometime!

  3. That is so cool!! You look great momma!

  4. Congrats! You did good! :)

  5. I worked in a coffee bar in Nfld and we served Van Houtte. It has never been gas station coffee to me.

    That said, I followed this trip on Twitter and wow- Old Montreal and wicked peeps and coffee!

    Congrats on your (1st?) commercial~

  6. That is one great commercial! You all looked like you were having so much fun!
    My coffee is Van Houtte Mellow Mocha – love it! I can’t have a regular coffee because of it!
    So happy you had a great time in Montreal – next time, I want to see you! :)

  7. This is so cool, Jody! You all did an amazing job with the commercial, it’s so fun!

  8. I showed this commercial to my kids and they were SO excited to see “Jody on TV!”

    Looks like you had an AMAZING, fun time :)

  9. That is so great and you are so cute!

  10. yay! you look so beautiful girl! loved it! I actually don’t drink coffee at all, neither does my husband, so we are a coffee-less house! lol

  11. I love the coffee so much I married a Van Houtte sales man :) The salesman is lovable too LOL

  12. Van Houtte serviced my place of work. Every day for 12 years I drank it. :)

  13. I have never tasted that coffee..but all convinced me I should! You were awesome – That is really neat!

  14. How awesome!!

  15. Tracy Taylor says:

    You look amazing, I just love it when blogs I follow end up doing things like this – it feels SO much more real to me. I love that companies are doing this – it shows that they are listening because honestly I will listen to you – a person I have followed and “get, trust ect” way more than some startlett that I have no connection to what so ever. You did well in my book :) Glad that they had you there as a regular blogger to – the rest seemed to be foodie bloggers :)

  16. That’s so wonderful! You look as happy as ever! Love that infectious smile! xo

  17. How cool is that!

  18. Congrats! : )

  19. That is pretty cool!

  20. AWESOME Jody! I love it!

  21. very cool. you did awesome. I am NOT a coffee drinker so that part is all lost on me but so excited for you for this opportunity

  22. What a fun experience!

  23. That was a great video. Sounds like you all had a great time!

  24. So I got to ask. Did you get a good picture with the horse? He seemed a little camera shy.

  25. Wow! Congratulations, Jody! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Looks like lots of fun with great coffee in Old Montreal? Has this been your first visit to Mtl? I hope you liked it in here and come back some day? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I could invite your to another great coffe places, since there are sooo many in this beatiful city… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Great commercial! That was so neat to watch. I have a famous friend!! I am so proud of you Jody! :) Keep on being all that you were created to be! Your beauty shines! :)

    • Thanks Lucille! I’m not famous, but I am enjoying using the gifts I was blessed with. Meeting so many wonderful women from across the country and letting them know how special they are gives me a joy that I only dreamed of as a child. Experiencing beautiful places like this trip to Old Montreal is another thing I never thought would become a reality, but it did and it will be a memory I’ll never ever forget.
      Thanks for your comment!

  31. Wow! OK, totally envious! I would have loved to have gone, and to have met KEVIN! Love Closet cooking!! :)
    Well done, Jody!

  32. That’s so cool!! I drank Van Houtte coffee every morning. I love their flavoured coffees.

    • Thanks for the comment Stacie. The coffee getaway in Old Montreal was incredible and I want to go back with my family one day! I love that I have the “commercial” as a memory to look back on. Van Houtte coffee is now my coffee of choice too, yummy!

  33. What a fun, creative and well done commercial! I love my coffee :)

  34. That is so awesome! Envious of your trip to Montreal, we visited years ago and I’d sure love to go back. Beautiful city.
