Walmart's Selling Its Own Kind Of Dunkaroos
The famous '90s treat that made it socially acceptable to eat cookies slathered in frosting as a lunchtime snack is baaaack — sort of. Dunkaroos may have been discontinued in the U.S. ages ago, but one retail giant is reviving the concept.
Instagram influencer Junk Banter recently posted a photo of a grab-and-go snack pack found at Walmart called Dunk 'N' Crunch. Like Dunkaroos, its plastic packaging features two compartments: one loaded with crunchy vanilla cookies, the other with rainbow sprinkles-swirled frosting.
Walmart confirmed the snack is in stores, describing it as a "slightly grownup version of your favorite cookie and icing treat of the past." Their version features shortbread cookies, and it's sold in the bakery section nationwide. Each 5.5-ounce snack pack will set you back $2.97. It's a far cheaper price to pay than the $50 you'll shell out to buy a discontinued pack through Amazon — and less costly than a plane ticket to Canada, where the original Dunkaroos are still manufactured and sold.
Of course, you could simply buy a tub of vanilla frosting, some sprinkles and a pack of Nilla wafers and go the DIY route (or make our Dunkaroos-inspired no-churn ice cream), but hey, you do you.
