Introduced 1988

Dunk-a-Roos are a snack food from Betty Crocker, first launched in 1988. It consists of a snack-sized package containing cookies and icing; the cookies are meant to be dunked into the icing before eating. Individual snack packages contain about ten small cookies and one cubic inch of icing. The cookies are made in a variety of shapes, the most common being a hot air balloon. Other shapes included a circle with an uppercase "D" in the center and the mascot in different poses.

The product's mascot is a cartoon kangaroo. The original mascot was Sydney, a caricature of modern Australian culture, wore a hat, vest, and tie and spoke with an Australian accent, voiced by John Cameron Mitchell. At the height of their popularity in 1996, a contest known as "Dunk-a-Roos Kangaroo Kanga-Who Search" was held, resulting in the new mascot: Duncan, named the dunkin' daredevil.[1]

Flavors Include:

Vanilla Icing with Chocolate Cookies, Chocolate Icing with Graham cookies, Strawberry Icing with Vanilla Cookies, and Rainbow Sprinkle Icing with Chocolate-Chip Graham Cookies. Previously the cookies were cinnamon flavored. There may have also been a special Shrek Edition, featuring green frosting. [2]
