What kind of cream cheese does Dunkin’ Donuts offer?
Dunkin’ offers several popular flavors of cream cheese spreads, including the classic flavors of plain, strawberry, garden veggies, and reduced-fat options. Some other seasonal options are available for a limited period and add a special twist to their menu, such as the pumpkin cream cheese spread in their 2017 fall menu and the maple cream cheese spread in the 2018 fall menu.
It’s worth noting that some flavors may have been discontinued or are no longer available for various reasons.

In the past, Dunkin’ Donuts offered delicious chive & onion cream cheese stuffed in bite-sized bagel minis.

What brand of cream cheese does Dunkin’ Donuts use?
The cream cheese served at Dunkin’ Donuts is sold under the Dunkin’ Donuts brand name, indicating that it is a proprietary product made exclusively for the chain.

The possibility that Dunkin’ Donuts uses Philadelphia cream cheese remains unconfirmed despite speculation.

The extra cream cheese typically comes in either small 1.5 oz containers (which was 1.75 oz), priced at around $1.5 to $2, or an 8 oz tub of plain cream cheese, priced at around $3 to $4, though prices may vary slightly by location.
