Are You Looking for Dunkaroos?

Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 12.46.39 PM Because, real talk, over the weekend, I was. So I tweeted about it and the response was overwhelming, which led me to believe that it was not just I who found herself longing for the kangaroo-shaped graham nuggets of yonder, who gracefully danced, triple axeled or sometimes just plained dropped into a small, cylindrical compartment that resided to the right of its rectangular, graham nesting counterpart, full of white frosting that was, if you were lucky enough to have come from the good snack house, littered with rainbow sprinkles.

Yes, until about thirty minutes, I was stuck in the gluttonous, credulously unhealthy depths of the euphoria that was 1990. And because I’m convinced we now share a brain, I’m going to assume that you are too. So there’s good news and bad news.

The good news is: you can find Dunkaroos, flourishing en masse on Amazon. The bad news is, and really, this is an atypical caveat is that THEY’RE $37 PLUS $25 FOR SHIPPING AND HANDLING.

You’d think I was trying to have a pair of Alaia sandals shipped over from Katmandu or something.

Back to chia seeds, it seems.

I guess we’ll always have the 90s, that little perishable Aussie and me.

    The best part about eating Dunkaroos was finishing off the icing using your finger after you ate all the graham crackers.

    HA!! EXCELLENT FIND. If you think that’s bad, then I will NOT tell you about the time I got drunk in college and paid $35+ shipping for a Tamagotchi pet. That was a time when $35 was supposed to last me about 2 weeks.

    A few years ago I could usually find them at my local Dollar General, though I don’t know if they still have them. And while not quite the same, a good substitute is Teddy Grahams dipped in Funfetti icing!

    You can still get them in Australia.. but they are Nestle not Betty Crocker and there only seems to be one flavour available.

    But, there’s the reboot—the sticks with NUTELLA! I mean, they’re not animal shaped character, but it’s also, NUTELLA. Just putting that out there. http://polkadotsandcandybars.blogspot.com/

    Luckily, being in Australia, these are still available in the shops, mostly chocolate flavoured ones but let’s face it, they’re still good! The $4.50 we pay is much better than the $37 you have to pay – however trying to purchase twinkies and pop tarts here is just as bad. Pop tarts are $20 a packet in Australia. Yeah. Ludicrous. Makes me think…maybe I just shouldn’t be eating them haha x
