General Mills has jumped on the '90s nostalgia bandwagon by bringing back Dunkaroos for another run.

The sugar-laden snack from GM-owned brand Betty Crocker, which combines graham cookie shapes and flavored frosting to dunk them into, will return this June. 

Its revival was announced on General Mills' social media accounts in a short clip also featuring "frosted tips," "cassette players" and "90's fashion" [sic].

(Note: BMTN knows it has problems with proofreading at times, but for the love of god when will supposedly educated brands learn there are no apostrophes in decades.)

The snacks were originally released in 1992, and their return will come in the form of its most popular flavor: vanilla cookies and vanilla frosting with rainbow sprinkles.

Its revival comes after a couple of big-name celebrities have called for their return in recent years, among them Kim Kardashian-West and Chrissy Teigen.

"For those who grew up in the '90s, the original cookie-frosting combo represents the taste, color and fun of being a kid during that decade," said Jeff Caswell, president of snacks at General Mills, in a press release.

"We know there’s a lot of love for Dunkaroos, and fans everywhere have been asking for it. We’re excited to help '90s kids relive all the best parts of childhood."
