Dunkaroos, the hit snack that disappeared in 2012, are finally back just in time for lunch! The ’90s lunchbox treat got a stylish 2020 makeover, too.
The word on the street is that the new Dunkaroos 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. Speaking of the ’90s, feel the nostalgia with our favorite 1990s recipes.
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.
Dunkaroos launched a cryptic Instagram account back in January, and we couldn’t have been more excited. 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.

Where Can I Get Some?!
For the past couple of months, Dunkaroos have been available at 7-Eleven. Now, though, Dunkaroos are being pulled from convenience store shelves and are only available online (and at some Target locations ). Thanks to the snack delivery app goPuff, though, Dunkaroos are eligible for delivery nationwide, so you don’t have to miss out on this throwback snack.
The catch? Supplies are limited, and once they’re gone, they’re gone. Put your order in on goPuff ASAP, before Dunkaroos head back to the ’90s for good.
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.
