I e-mailed International Delights about freezing their coffee creamer and this was the response I got...



Thank you for your recent e-mail to International Delights®. We appreciate your interest in our products.

We do not recommend freezing our products. While freezing does not damage the nutritional value, upon defrosting the product can separate irregularly, greatly reducing its visual quality, consistency and taste.

If you do chose to freeze our product, we suggest defrosting it slowly in your refrigerator and then shaking it vigorously to regain its texture. There is no guarantee that the product will return to its signature quality. In addition, freezing does not extend the product's freshness date.

Thanks again for contacting the Consumer Affairs Department

Wellllll...not sure that I believe this one:

In addition, freezing does not extend the product's freshness date.


That sure does resemble the company doing a little CYA just in case... How can freezing a product NOT extend how long it's good? Anybody out there have some data on this???

I would also like to know if you can freeze half & half... I am single, and hate to throw it out if I could just freeze it...

Looking forward to someone in the know, letting us know... icon_smile.gif

while I agree that freezing coffee creamer is not the best thing in the world.. I dont think its bad either.

If you were the creamer company which would you say "Yes, freeze our creamer so you never have to throw away leftover unused product and you get your monies worth" or "No, you cant freeze it, after 2 weeks throw it away and buy more, and more and more and more"

I always let my thaw in the fridge and give it a good shake after its done.

I dont know.. I have been doing this for about a year now, and have had no ill side effects (that I know of) so I my mind, I dont see the harm in it. But I guess it will be a personal judgment for each person to make on their own.

I've been looking for information on this, and I found (from the foodsafetlyline website) that you can freeze milk, but should freeze it before the "best buy" date and for no longer than 3 months. they do not recommend freezing cream. They also say that freezing milk may affect the texture.

Freezing milk or cream will usually cause it to separate upon thawing, so if you add it to your coffee, you will get a "curdled" look. This does not affect the taste, but it looks a little weird. I freeze individual coffee creamer cups all the time, since my youngest loves to "eat" them right out of the freezer. I've thrown them in my coffee occasionally, and it's still all right, you can just see tiny white particles floating in the liquid. (That's the milk fat)

Freezing the flavoured creamers would probably have the same result, but if you're mixing it into something else, like icing or cake batter, then the results shouldn't be any different than using fresh.

On that note, I sure hope the Creme Brulee Coffee Mate Creamer is still available when I visit NY this week - I plan to stock up! It's soooo good, and I used up what I bought last time so quickly in my coffee and iced cappucino, that none made it into any of my cakes or icings! And of course, it's not available in Canada.... icon_cry.gif

I thought I posted here, but don't see it...

I freeze the CoffeeMate all the time. I buy the quart size and just pop them in the freezer. When I want one I let it thaw, shake it up and use it. Never had any problem with separating, and I've done it since the cardboard cartons.

Just curious, I haven't used it yet--but could you just use the powdered stuff instead of the liquid?
