Nostalgia Alert! Dunkaroos Flavored Beer Tastes Like Childhood (But Don’t Give It to Kids)

If you grew up in the ’90s, you know all about the magical, dessert-adjacent snack known as Dunkaroos. This kangaroo-endorsed snack pack that was first introduced in 1992 consisted of cookies and frosting. You were supposed to dunk the cookies in the frosting and eat it. Definitely not nutritious, but highly delicious. As we grew up, we began to crave this delicacy again, only to realize that it was discontinued in the U.S. in 2012. It was still available in Canada and even gained notoriety because of people smuggling it back into the U.S. for sale. It returned to stores in the States back in February and, since then, we’ve eaten more of this sugary treat than any adult should. Now, thanks to a Fort Worth, Texas-based brewery we can now sip nostalgia in beer form.

Recently, Martin House Brewing, known for its crazy concoctions like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, Warheads, Best Made Sour Pickle, and even Honey Butter-based brews, dropped a Dunkaroos-centric beer aptly called “DunkAbroos.” Made with lactose, cookies, vanilla cream, and sprinkles, this beer is where our childhood nostalgia meets our adult vices.

“We actually did it! This beer is nostalgia in a can. It wasn’t easy tracking down all these tasty treats for ‘research’ but we were able to find a few. The flavors have been replicated perfectly,” the brewery posted on Instagram.

Dunkabroos 8% – Ale brewed with Cookies, Vanilla Cream, Lactose, and Sprinkles. We actually did it! This beer is nostalgia in a can. It wasn’t easy tracking down all these tasty treats for “research” but we were able to find a few. The flavors have been replicated perfectly. It’s a sweet, cookie filled brew that even has that frosting finish (like when you save all the cream for the last cookie – yall know what we’re talking about)! Dunkabroos goes on sale today. It is a taproom only release. 4packs are $20. Four 4pack limit per person. We open at noon. Hope yall have as much fun drinking this as we did brewing it. Cheers! #dunkabroos #90s #takemeback

The best part? While some breweries include strange ingredients (like hot dogs) and the beer still tastes like a basic beer, this brew literally tastes like cookies and frosting in beer form. No beer has better encapsulated our childhood since Homer Simpson made Skittle Brau.

The beer went on sale as a taproom only release. Four-packs went for $20 and, within minutes, the beer sold out. Luckily, due to the popularity of this brew, Martin House has already announced that they’re going to create another batch soon.
