Since the 2003 blog posts, it's interesting to read the different
experiences with what is called the Cho Cho malt ice cream treat.
The Cho Cho that I knew and loved came on a stick in a round 5-oz
size cup with a colorful clown picture on the wrapper. This was during
the late 40's thru 60's. It wasn't the typical Eskamo pie type thing with
a coating or crunch........just a smooth malt ice cream......you rolled
the cup between your hands to soften the frozen treat, then when the
malt was softened, the clown wrapper could be slipped off revealing
a malt treat with a perfect consistency for licking!!  I think the clown
wrapper and process was part of the fun.

Best Regards, Jim

I was searching Google for Cho Cho Ice Cream and came across this discussion.  I also thought no one remembered.  That was my favorite ice cream bar in the early 1960s when I lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  

Who made the ice cream - Nestles or Hershey's?  I used to love the crunchy malt flavor where the inside was not totally chocolate or vanilla.  

One time I was hanging out with the son of a bodega owner while my dad helped the owner build shelves.  Well I got in so much trouble because the son and I each ate anywhere from six to eight each cho cho bars in one sitting.  That was the summer I graduated from sixth grade.  I think it was the summer of 1963.

Wonder whatever happened to those ice cream bars.  Man would I love to have one.

As an aside, in the Puerto Rican community the name was amusing and as kids we got a kick out of it because it very very closely sounds a like a vulgar term for a female body part.

While I have only read a few of the posts I know I am not crazy (at least as it relates to this ice cream. further, I have found a community that loves the same ice cream I so loved growing up in Williamsburg, Bklyn and will never forget (that taste).

I've just received a message from Nestlé's regarding
Cho Chos.
I think if we can more people to write requesting the return of our favorite ice cream treat, perhaps it would happen.

I have talked about the Cho Cho bar for years! The only place that I
ever remember having it was at the lake we used to belong to.
Lakeland Acres in Cortland, NY) They were my absolute favorite!
Today, my husband and I stopped in our nearby Rite Aid where they
actually sell ice cream cones and cups! They had a Malted choco
crunch ice cream! OMG! It reminded me of the Cho Cho bars! Yum! I
will be returning to buy more asap! I'll skip the cone next time,
because it took away from the deliciousness! Maybe I'll get some to
take home!  So much for my diet!  Smile

Hi Diana and all,

I'm brand spanking new to this site, so I haven't read all the other comments yet. What brought me to this site was that just a couple of days ago I was thinking back to my childhood and for some strange reason cho chos came to mind. From what I understand, all people as they get older have this thing about spending a lot of their time thinking good thoughts about things long ago. I know that as I get older, I do that. Well, when I was a child in Trumann, AR., my Dad owned a grocery store and I worked there quite a bit. Lots of times when things would be slow, Dad and I would take the time to eat some type of ice cream. Some of these were: Wonder Bars, Push Ups, Fudgecicles, Dreamcicles, Popcicles, and of course Cho Chos. I also remember that two brands of ice cream that we sold were Midwest and Sealtest. I can't remember if there were others. But, I do remember eating cho chos, so I suppose that one of these companies made them.

I have been looking for these for years..They used to be delivered via
ice cream truck in the 1950s..They were called CHO CHO POPS on
Long Island New York....They were a malted milk Ice cream bar that
was covered with a chocolate shell that had rice Krispy type things in
it...I have been looking for these for years....I have never seen the
other kinds you are talking about.. These were not in stores in New
York, only delivered by the ice cream man....

Barbara--You have never lived till you
have done something for someone
that can never repay you...
