I loved these in my lunch when I was young, can you still get them somewhere?

I found this...While most people believe that Dunk-a-Roos are no longer produced, this is false, and they can still be found in places such as Sam's Club. They are still very popular in Canada... I am going to check it out because dunk-a-roos are awesome!

The absolute best Dunk A Roos were the cinnamon crackers that had the vanilla icing and sprinkles. Not too much better than that!

and the kangaroo always said, "HOw do you dip your Dunk-a-roos? I dip em in CHocolate!!!" (in an aussie accent, of course)

I can confirm that I've seen these at Hannaford's just a month and half ago and on Amazon yesterday. Also they're supposedly available at Costco's and Dollar General so let's bring these back folks!

I live in Indiana and I buy Dunk-A-Roos all the time for my daughter at Dollar General. They only have the cinnamon with sprinkle icing, but that was my favorite anyway!

I still remember the jingle: "Dunk-a-roos, Dunk-a-roos... taste so good with a glass of MOOOO!" My mom never bought them, but I always wanted to try them.

Delicious. Still around. What more can I say? If you live in the US, try Sam's Club, that's where I buy mine.

I only had them once, when they first came out. Didn't have enough frosting with the cookies though. But the cookies were good.

I can still find these in the stores, but for those of you who can't, a good substitute is honey teddy grahams dipped in vanilla cake frosting! Yummy!

Hm. Dunk-a-Roos was first launched in 1993. not really an 80s food. They are still around too.
Rachel - December 29, 2008 - Report this comment
I have very fond memories of eating these. They were so yummy!
stacey - January 09, 2009 - Report this comment
I want to buy them Please tell me where they can be purchased. My kids loved them
Anna - January 18, 2009 - Report this comment
I loved these, but my mom refused to buy them. I only ate them if friends shared at their houses or at school.
Foxyfishy - February 04, 2009 - Report this comment
Doreen I like that idea! Dunkaroos were the best!
Jennifer - February 07, 2009 - Report this comment

Dunkaroos are '90s, not '80s. The concept itself is so very '90s, I don't even see how anybody got confused on this one.
veg - April 21, 2009 - Report this comment
They were launched in 1988. why argue about it anyways? I'm just happy to hear they still make 'em. I remember eating them as a kid, and if they were made in the 90s, that would make me much younger than I am...that'd be nice though :P

My sister and I used to chow down on those bad boys! My poor Dad would have to buy 6 or 7 boxes at a time because there weren't that many dipping packs in it!
Mitch - March 05, 2012 - Report this comment
@ cheryl ---- They are made by Betty Crocker, so check their website for local distributors. I live in Fairfax myself and I haven't seen them around, but I also haven't been looking. I remember hating these as a kid since I've always disliked frosting.
Alana - June 16, 2013 - Report this comment
Dunk a Roos were being made by the General Mills Company in Minneapolis MN in 2010. Maybe they own Betty Crocker, because I do see B.C. on the packages yes. They are sold here because they are made here, I think, or distributed from this city, at least. Might be why Canada has a lot of them also, as it borders the state and in the North my old home town always carried Canadian product also. I love the cinnamon cookies with vanilla frosting with speckles

Wikipedia says they were launched in 88 but I'm not buying it, at least not in the US. I really think this was a 90's food here

The Dunkaroo has returned! I spotted them at Walmart the other day, plus you can buy them on Amazon!
