Last month, it was announced that Dunkaroo's were coming back into stores over the summer. Was I stoked about this? Absolutely! Dunkaroo's was a snack that was always in my lunchbox in elementary school. Was I mad that another snack isn't also coming back? Yes, and that snack is the Oreo Cakesters.
These delicacies were dense, chocolate, circular cakes with vanilla cream in the middle, and it came in packs of two, or three if you're lucky. They tasted great dipped in milk or just by themselves. They used to be superior to the standard Oreo back in the day.
Oreo Cakesters were by far my favorite snack growing up. I would eat them in my school's aftercare program. I would eat them for lunch. I would eat them on the weekends. I would eat them all the time! I couldn't tell you when exactly I stopped seeing them on grocery store shelves, but when I finally noticed they were gone, I was outraged.
My favorite snack was just not available anymore. '
When the news came out that Dunkaroo's were coming back, I thought to myself, "why aren't other popular snacks from back in the day coming back too?"
Snacks like the old Scooby-Doo fruit snacks, the original Oreo-O's and S'Mores cereals, Cheez-It Gritz, and Butterfinger BB's were amazing back in the day, but nothing could compare to the Oreo Cakesters. I say that they should bring it back. Maybe not at the same time as the Dunkaroo's though, so it can get its own spotlight.
It's time to bring back the iconic snack. Let's not have the younger generation miss out on such a delicacy. It's time for an Oreo Cakesters Comeback.
