International Delight Creamers & Iced Coffee
Does your household use International Delight coffee creamers?
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.

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

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:
- Mocha (the author’s favorite)
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.

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.
