It might just be me, but I think the new Dunkin’ Pumpkin Munchkin Creamer tastes like International Delight’s Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer. It wouldn’t surprise me, though, because they’re both made by the Danone company.
I’d do a taste test, but I’ve been having difficulty finding the seasonal International Delight flavor here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. My calls to the Great Pumpkin have not been returned.
I want to say it maybe tastes a little more pumpkin-y than my memory of International Delight’s offering. There isn’t even anything that I could consider cake or icing-like.
But besides what my hazy memory can remember, there is a difference between the two. The Dunkin’ coffee enhancer is made with real cream. Well, cream and skim milk, to be exact, which International Delight creamers don’t have. Does that create a creamier creamer? I don’t think so.
There isn’t even a color difference. Maybe if Dunkin’ wanted to be cute, it could’ve made this Dunkin’ orange. But instead, it looks like most other creamers, so the coffee photo I took below could contain Dunkin’s Pumpkin Munchkin Creamer. Or it could be International Delight French Vanilla. Or maybe it’s Coffee mate’s Hazelnut. Or perhaps that’s a glass of storm water.
Dunkin’s Pumpkin Munchkin Creamer is pretty much a pumpkin spice-flavored creamer without “pumpkin spice” in its name. If you’d like a slightly more natural pumpkin spice creamer than International Delight’s (or if the stores around you aren’t carrying it for some reason), but also don’t want to pay more for Coffee mate’s Natural Bliss version, this is a great tasting option.

Are you in Guam? ??
No, he’s in Hawaii. (Hope you don’t mind my answering for you, Marvo!)
Clearly the Great Pumpkin has you on read because you aren’t calling from the most Sincere Rock in the Pacific.
I agree. This one has way more pumpkin flavor. It’s much better than the ID one.
All I taste is cream! The ID is much more spicy I think, I like a spicy pumpkin pie so maybe that’s my problem. It just tastes too sweet to me
Thank you for this. And by the way – I have not been able to find the International brand Pumpkin Spice either. I am in Fredericksburg, Virginia and we have more grocery stores than you can imagine!
Dunkin’ it’s is. I don’t care for the pumpkin coffee mate.
