Beloved '90s Snack Dunkaroos Are Returning to Shelves in 2020
It's time to break out your Power Rangers lunchbox. Dunkaroos, a favorite snack of nostalgic '90s kids, is making a comeback in 2020, CNN reports.
Dunkaroos owner General Mills announced in a blog post Monday that the cookie-and-frosting combo will be returning to shelves after an eight-year hiatus. "General Mills is throwing it back to a time of neon, knick-knacks and nostalgia with the relaunch of everyone’s favorite sweet snack," the news release reads.
Dunkaroos gained instant schoolyard fame when they debuted in 1992. Each packet comes with graham cookies and a frosting compartment for dunking, as the name suggests. Though they're associated with the snack golden age of the 1990s, Dunkaroos were commercially available through the early 2000s before they were finally pulled from the U.S. market in 2012.
Rumors of the treat's return circulated when official Dunkaroos Instagram and Twitter accounts surfaced in January, and now, they've been confirmed. According to the General Mills blog post, the snack will make its sweet return sometime this summer. So far, the company has stated the once-discontinued delights will start appearing in 7-Eleven stores before they're made available at more places nationwide.
Dunkaroos are the latest discontinued snack that's been revived for millennials. In 2018, Planters started selling its Cheez Balls for the first time in over a decade.
