This is not a drill, I repeat this is not a drill! All my '90s kids listen up, remember when you were a kid and it was lunchtime and you opened your sweet red plastic Power Rangers lunch box and your Mom had packed you the next best thing to a lunchable... DUNKAROOS! I can still taste it, dipping those cookies into that icing!
From subtle hints on Instagram and Twitter, I can tell you that I'm about 95% sure that Dunkaroos are going to make a comeback in 2020! A new account popped up on Instagram the other day and it's a verified account with the name, @dunkaroos. The Instagram account has over 38k followers and only one photo, which is a photo of the icing and the eyes emoji.
Now, let's get to Twitter. A new account has also popped up on Twitter the other day, @dunkaroos, it's a verified blue check mark account with no tweets, but it has 1.8K followers! Now this is me just throwing it out there that Dunkaroos are making a comeback in 2020, how awesome would it be to show our kids the foods that defined our childhood? I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that Dunkaroos will be making a comeback.
According to Yahoo! Lifestyle, "Refinery29 has reached out to Dunkaroos’ parent company, General Mills, and a spokesperson declined to comment on the return of Dunkaroos." Well, that's not a good sign... or is it? Maybe they are keeping it hush hush because they don't want anything to leak out before they are ready to roll out the product and do a massive social media takeover... if you're reading this Dunkaroos, I won't be mad if you send me a case of Dunkaroos, you know to put in my sweet red plastic Power Rangers lunch box!
UPDATE: Dunkaroos are in fact coming back in 2020! They will be available this Summer!
