If you were a kid in the ’90s, then you know that there was only one thing cooler than bringing Lunchables to school. No, it wasn’t pogs (very cool) or slap bracelets (also very cool, because they made you feel kind of dangerous) — it was Dunkaroos, the cookie you dipped in frosting yourself. And if you haven’t had a pack of Dunkaroos since elementary school and are now feeling like you want to gorge on them, then we’ve got some bad news for you: They were discontinued in America in 2012.

But there’s also some good news, and it’s this: Dunkaroos are still available in Canada. But then there’s some more bad news, which is that it costs an arm and a leg to import your favorite childhood treats to America — which some people are allegedly doing. But wait, some more good news, again: A new site is here to help you smuggle this very important delicacy into the country at reasonable rates. Nostalgic Americans, meet Smugglaroos, an entire site devoted to connecting you with the halcyon days of your youth, a time when you were ceded control by the powers that be to decide exactly how much frosting you wanted on each cookie.

Here’s how it works if you’re an American: You go to the site — which is actually a promotion being run by General Mills — drop in your email and location and then wait to be matched with a Canadian who’ll be visiting your fair city and is open to taking the risk of smuggling the snack across the border.
