I just discovered this site when I was searching for the Cho-Cho Ice Cream
that I remember from childhood in San Francisco.  On Saturday
afternoons, I would go down to my grandmother's house, two blocks
away, to watch Bar-Seven Theater.  We didn't have a TV.  My dad thought
that it was a "passing fancy."  That turned out to be a good thing; when we
finally got one, we had the biggest screen on our block.  Sorry for
digressing a bit.  My grandmother would give me money to go to the
corner market to buy ice cream.  I always bought Cho-Chos in the cup
with the stick.  After 60+ years, I can still remember the feeling of rolling
the cup in my palms to loosen the ice cream, and I can still remember that
wonderful taste.  I have enjoyed reading other people's memories of such
a unique ice cream.  Thanks, Sue

Hi...My mother always thought that a Wendy's Frosty was just like the Cho
Cho's of her youth.  Here is a link to a recipe for the Frosty...maybe try
making it and then freezing it into the shape you want.

Good luck!

I tried both and neither taste like the original Cho Cho.  Tuckers was so far off and I had them shipped to the east coast from the west coast.

Good try, Thanks.

I don't know if you ever found the Cho-Cho bars or the recipes, however, I found a site that lists a place that they can still be purchased as well as a recipe for them.

Bruno,

That is an assumption on your part.  Diana may have mispelled the word except/accept.
Whatever she meant, I agree with her.

I have included on this site all of the research I have done and purchases that I have made to find the "true cho cho in a cup."  I don't need a thank you.  I appreciate Diana creating this site for us to share.  Diana, please accept my thanks, I should have done it much sooner.

I have a problem with Bruno and Rich Creator's attitudes.  They shine a dark cloud on something that was meant to be enjoyable to research and remember the past.

Diana, Please don't get discouraged or even consider closing down this site.  You are making too many people happy.  As Abe Lincoln said,You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you cant please all of the people all of the time.  You are obviously pleasing the majority of the cho cho cup people most of the time.

I really can't figure out why it is so important to be recognized for a contribution to this site OR people choosing to continue to look further until they are content they have found it.  
FREEDOM IS A GREAT THING.

  Dear Bruno,
I am so sorry for not thanking Rich Creator for his recipe for Cho Cho's. I am thanking him now (Thank you Rich so very much!!), and also I want to thank you Bruno for bringing this to my attention. Please except my apology.
>unquote<

Never in my life have I seen such a blatant disingenous apology
which reveals the true character of the person.

Back in the late 50's I used to spend some weeks in the summers with my sister and her family in Utica, NY There is where I found the Cho Cho ice cream cups with the stick. I never noticed the bar, perhaps the store didn't carry them. I never forgot that rich malted taste. Many decades later, on one of my sister and her husband's visits to my house. I tried to duplicate that treat. As I recall, I took regular chocolate ice cream partially melted and added  malted milk powder that I mixed with cream, after it was blended well, I refroze it. As I recall the Cho Cho ice cream didn't have a lot of chocolate in it, it was pretty pale. My brother in law agreed with me that I had come very close to the original flavor. I don't believe I measured any of the ingrediants just went by taste...so have at it and good luck. Amazing how a dairy treat can make such an impact on so many people......

When I first brought up the discussion about Cho Cho's, I was talking about the ones in the cup with a stick in it, not the bar. Hope I have cleared this up for you and everyone else. Sorry for the confusion!

Sincerely, Diana
