A little while back, in the midst of a pandemic, we found out that beloved frosting-based ‘90s snack Dunkaroos would be hitting store shelves once again. Unfortunately, their triumphant comeback wasn’t enough to alter the trajectory of the dumpster fire that has been 2020… but maybe Dunkaroos cereal somehow will.
Yup, you heard that right: not only can you dip cookies into frosting and call it a snack again, but you can now call it a breakfast. First tipped off by @CereaLife and later reiterated by @SnackGator, it sure looks like General Mills has something very special planned for the near future.
OMG! 😱 Thanks to @cereallife we got a juicy tip on a yummy new cereal coming! Dunkaroos Cereal from General Mills is apparently in the works and on the way. No word on when or where yet, but you know we'll update you as soon as we find anything out about it! The packaging may be different (it's still in the works), but it sure looks like Birthday Cake Cookie Crisp, doesn't it? We aren't complaining! Who else is excited!? 😋🥣

Based on what we can infer from the above Instagram that we have at our disposal, it would seem that Dunkaroos cereal looks like it emphasizes the cookie over the frosting, which makes sense. As @SnackGator sees it, the closest approximation to this colorful funfetti-flecked Dunkaroos cereal would probably be a birthday cake version of Cookie Crisp. I can’t really imagine anything that sounds much better than that.
Unfortunately, there’s no official word on when this breakfast version of Dunkaroos (something I never dreamed I’d be able to type) will hit store shelves. It’s possible that General Mills is giving standard-edition dunkaroos some time to shine before blowing everyone’s minds with the cereal version.
So maybe there’s some hope for this terrible year after all. I’m not going to claim that Dunkaroos cereal can somehow cure Covid-19 or heal the deep, systemic problems with racism and policing in this country. But I can say with some level of confidence that turning one of the best snacks of the ‘90s into a cereal probably won’t make things any worse.
