Dunkaroos, the hit snack that disappeared in 2012, are finally coming back to stores! The ’90s lunchbox treat is getting a 2020 makeover, too.
The word on the street is that the new Dunkaroos will showcase the classic vanilla cookies and vanilla frosting with rainbow sprinkles for dunking. The packaging retains a retro feel with its bright colors (purple and turquoise, of course) and ’90s graphics.
What’s a Dunkaroo?
If Dunkaroos mania passed you by the first time around, here’s what you need to know. The original treat came in individual snack packs, which contained vanilla cookies on one side and frosting—vanilla or chocolate—on the other side for dipping. These all-in-one snacks were the ultimate after-school treat.
Cookies and cream are a favorite pairing. What about peanut butter and banana? Or the crackers and cheese in Handi-Snacks? Check out the other retro food combos that might bring back a taste of childhood.
When Can I Dunk Them?
Dunkaroos recently launched a cryptic Instagram account. The first post consisted of a close-up photo of rainbow sprinkles frosting and the only commentary was the side-eye emoji. Very stealthy! To date, the post has more than 50k “likes,” which points to General Mills having another hit on its hands.

The bad news is Dunkaroos won’t be available until summer. If you can’t hold out until then, you might want to try our chocolate chip dip with graham crackers, spice cookies with pumpkin dip or a brownie batter dip you can even dunk some pretzels or apple slices in.
With the return of this fan favorite, is it possible for other tasty blasts from the past to get revived, too? We’re holding out for Hi-C Ecto Cooler and Tribbles.
