Calling All Coffee Lovers: The International Delight Brand

The International Delight (I.D.) brand surfaced in the 1980’s as the first liquid flavored, non-dairy creamer.

It is produced by the WhiteWave Foods Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dean Foods, headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado. Originally, it was only available in three different flavor “creamer singles.” It has since vastly expanded as you will see.

International Delight creamers are now available in:

  • 32 oz. quarts
  • 16 oz. pints
  • Singles

Plus, the popular flavor, French Vanilla, is also available is 64 oz. half gallon size.

What is the Shelf Life and Storage Recommendations of International Delight Creamers?

I.D. creamers should be used within two weeks of opening and before the recommended “use by” date. The shelf life from the date it was manufactured can be up to 120 days if unopened.

It is necessary to refrigerate all I.D. creamers except unopened singles since they are contained in stay-fresh packaging.

Additional Facts about International Delight Creamers

  • I.D. creamers can be used in dessert and beverage recipes (see below).
  • I.D. creamers contain sodium caseinate which is a milk derivative but they do not contain lactose. They are considered “non dairy” because the FDA classifies the sodium caseinate as a non-dairy ingredient.
  • I.D. creamers do not contain gluten.
  • I.D. has a “taste guarantee.” They will give you your money back if you are not completely satisfied with the taste. 800-441-3321

Delicious I.D. Iced Coffee

New International Delight Iced Coffee

It was determined that fans of iced coffee were looking for a chilled, ready-to-drink beverage that was much less expensive than coffeehouse prices.

I.D. Iced Coffee was introduced in January 2012, available in 64 oz. half-gallon cartons. It offers the convenience of quality iced coffee at home; simply pour over ice if desired.

The I.D. Iced Coffee authentic flavors include:

  • Original
  • Mocha (the author’s favorite)
  • Vanilla
  • Caramel

The smooth, rich flavor of I.D. Iced Coffee is made with 100% premium Arabica coffee beans.

If you are looking for a caffeine boost, I.D. Iced Coffee contains 76 mg of caffeine per 8 ounces. Other leading iced espresso drinks contain about 50 mg of caffeine for the same serving size.

UPDATE January 28, 2013: International Delight has now come out with a "light" version of their iced coffee. I love the Light Mocha even more than the original.

If you've tried the I.D. Iced Coffee, what is your favorite flavor?

The Many Uses of International Delight Creamer or Iced Coffee

International Delight Creamers and Iced Coffee can be incorporated into many desserts and beverages.

My favorite I.D. product is the Mocha Iced Coffee. I like it plain, over ice and also mixed 50/50 with milk. I've also blended my Mocha Iced Coffee with ice, a banana and a little bit of vanilla ice cream. Yum.

Here are a couple recipes that I have tried that I'd like to share with you.

I hope you have enjoyed learning about the International Delight brand. Be creative and mix yourself some new beverages and even desserts with your favorite I.D. flavors.

Anyone that I have ever talked with in person, spoke to online or anything that I have ever read related to International Delight Creamers or Iced Coffee has always been positive. Enjoy!

      Hi Kathryn ~ thank you so much! FYI, I recently switched from the I.D. Iced Mocha regular to the new "light" version. I love it even better than the original. I appreciate you stopping by.

      Hi Steph ~ I know, that salted caramel mocha sounds so good. I've never liked black coffee so I definitely keep I.D. in business. Thank you so much for stopping by.

      Hi teaches ~ I agree, I certainly NEED that first cup in the morning. Having so many creamer options is awesome. Later in the day is when I switch to the iced coffee. Thank so much for your comments and vote.

      Yum! I usually drink coffee black, but it's a real treat when I use specially flavored creamers. The salted caramel mocha sounds yummy!

      I have used all the classics listed, but have not tried the American favorites. I love how we have options to flavor our favorite brew in the mornings. I don't know what I would do without that first cup each morning. Voted up!

      Hi Carter ~ they are really great. Just so you know, I'm sure you can order the individual creamers on line and have them shipped to "Oz." Just a thought. Thanks so much for your votes and share.

      Hi Kelley ~ well I'm finally getting to some of my comments, it's been a crazy start to the month. And I am sitting here with my Iced Coffee Mocha with ice in my favorite glass :) I just love the stuff. When I feel I need a "caffeine boost" - this is what I like. You'll have to try it. Thanks for stopping by.

      I love International Delight Creamers. My favorite is the chocolate caramel. After I started using ID, I couldn't return to canned milk. It just doesn't taste the same anymore.

      I guess you can say I've been spoiled! Great hub.

      The flavors in the table sound absolutely wonderful, and the coffee in the last photo is so tempting! Your hub makes me want to visit the store right now to buy some of the products that you mention!
