You can’t convince me that Betty Crocker personally invented this snack treat in her own kitchen. The whole thing could be just a culinary “accident”. Possibly similar to that other story often told about the famous “accident” when a lump of peanut butter fell into a dish of
melted chocolate which formed the basis for that other Urban Legend about the discovery (or invention…) of the Reese Cup.
Nope – I’m going with my own personal theory about a random pairing of the very obvious. I propose that the Culinary Equation can be simply stated as:
Cookies + Frosting = X
Solve for the value of X
Frosting was always my favorite part of any cake or cookie dessert that could almost always be found in our childhood kitchen. My mother actually would make her own “homemade” donuts – but that’s another story for another time…
You can Google around the Internet and find a variety of factoids about the “where and/or when“ but not the “why” of Betty Crocker’s Dunkaroos. Some serious Snack Fans would call this the “perfect” snack food from Betty Crocker. I know how old I was in the late 1980’s – and I am sure that Betty was even older (and wiser…) – but many people may associate Dunkaroos with Happy Memories from the late 1980s or early 1990s.
Still asking yourself the question of where to buy Dunkaroos? We have the answer to that question. Just follow this link and you might be surprised to find out that you can still buy “factory fresh” Dunkaroos. We import Dunkaroos each week from Ontario, Canada. God may Save The Queen – but Betty Crocker always saves the day!
