Get ready for some major nostalgia because Dunkaroos are about to make a major comeback! Yep, that’s right, the iconic ’90s snack is set to hit grocery store shelves, once again, in summer 2020.
The big announcement came on Monday, February 3, in the form of a video posted to social media. The brand’s official Instagram account shared clips of trends from the ’90s before they dropped the huge bomb that Dunkaroos are “definitely coming back.”
Other well-known snack brands took to the comments section and welcomed Dunkaroos back to the shelves.
“Welcome back, pal,” Chex Mix comments. Fruit By The Foot added, “Welcome back.”
Bugles revealed that they were “HYPED” for the comeback and Shake Shack said, “It’s a good day.”
That’s not all! The Dunkaroos official Twitter account resurfaced a few old celebrity tweets raving about the snack.
In 2018, Kim Kardashian posted, “Obsessed with Dunkaroos. Please come back!” To which the brand responded, “As you wish.”
After she heard the news, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star responded and said, “OMG!!!!!!!!! I love you [Dunkaroos].”
Chrissy Teigen had a tweet from 2011 that read, “I LOVED DUNKAROOS!! I’ve had a craving for Dunkaroos for like 11 years.”
They replied with, “We’re back, Chrissy,” which brought further excitement to the epic comeback!
For those who don’t know, the fan-favorite General Mills’ snack combines mini cookies and frosting in a convenient, on-the-go package. As the name implied, the point of the treat was to dunk the cookies in the frosting before eating them. The snack first hit stores in 1990, but it wasn’t until 1996 that they hit peak popularity. In 2012, it was announced that Dunkaroos would be discontinued in the United States, but now they’re about to be back and better than ever!
“The year is 2020. You just found out Dunkaroos are coming back. Life is good,” the brand posted on Twitter after their epic announcement.
