Ok!  I am going to the grocery store tomorrow and hope by the time I get home my ice cream is not completely melted since the temp in Schertz, TX has been hovering in the +100 degree range every day.  I also hope that they have the two different malts to add in to the ice cream.

To Richcreater:  I might not have had the original Cho-Cho from the 50's but the ones that I had growing up in Reading, PA from the Muhlenberg Dairy were pretty **** good.  If this recipe is anything close to that, I will be extremely happy.  

To the rest of you,  Why not try the recipe for yourselves....then you can decide if they taste the way you remember them from your younger days.  What is it going to hurt.

Adios Amigos from Schertz, TX

I got around to being curious about the cost of the cho cho's I make with my recipe. Give or take a nickel or a dime, each cho cho of mine cost about 20 cents. And my cho cho's taste far more like the original chocolate malted cho cho.
People seem to be willing to pay 70 cents each for an imitation that tastes nothing like a cho cho or
people seem to be willing to wait until the end of time for nothing.
I made a dozen cho cho's the other day. Today I made 18 more, but I whipped the batter to incorporate more air and make them more creamy and I got 18 instead of 12. These 18 cho cho's that I made today cost me $2.25 total.  

I just happened to think of something that happened a few years ago. A woman came into the diner and asked for a piece of apricot pie. The waitress said they never have apricot pie. The woman  was so distressed because she craved apricot pie so bad. I said to her, "why don't you go home and make yourself an apricot pie?" She gave me a dirty look, much like the dirty look I feel like I get here.
I never buy pie or cake. I always make my own, whatever flavor I crave. I depend on nobody. And I never do without.

I had a cho cho I think I was in Chicago at the time I think it was in 1967 or maybe it was 1972 or between then and I really liked that cho cho. Does anybody know where I can buy cho choes or does you know how maybe I can make one? Thanks in advance.

What are you searching for? What good would a sailor do you?
This thread was started by Diana in December of 2002.
Since then it has been proven that an original cho cho does not exist.
It has been proven that all imitations do not taste like a cho cho.
Do you think it is so much fun to seach for the impossible? Do you enjoy hoping and searching for something that does not exist?
Yea gads, ladies, after 8 years, deal with the truth.
In 2002 Diana requested a recipe for a cho cho. A recipe was posted a few days ago. Can't you ladies  make a simple recipe and enjoy what you have been searching for for the last 8 years?
Or do you resent the fact that the recipe was created by a man?

Heard back from Popsicle.  Strike out.  Here is the response:

"To the best of our knowledge Popsicle did not own the right to the
product you mentioned below.

Kind regards,
Your friends at Good Humor-Breyers"

A few pages back, someone mentioned that the Navy had Cho Cho's.  But nothing was ever mentioned again.  I tried searching menus ect... for the Ships but couldn't locate anything.  Anyone know an active Sailor????

Bademento paid $160.00 for a dozen popsicles that tasted nothing like a cho cho.
I'd be angry too but she should be angry at herself and not angry at others.

Hey Bademento, Did you ever try the Cho Cho's from PA?  Just wondering if they were the same as the ones in the little clown cup.  


I just reread the blog and remember that you paid $160 for the ones from Tucker's. Poor you, those are just plain disappointing.

Tom N is the other native SF person who also remembered Cho Cho's and I think he bought the cup.  

Cheers. Mimi

Up until now, this site was for cho cho on a stick that you roll in your hands.  And if someone mentioned another type, that was fine.  And, no one asked to be thanked for their input, as Rich whatever.  That was when people got a sour taste in their mouth.  He was put out that we didn't thank him.  He is so funny and so prepostureous.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with bademento -
quote:


Unless Richcreator is 70+, he doesn't know what he is talking about.



I'm 12 years younger than Richcreator and I well remember Cho-Cho's - in a cup - from my youth in north-central Illinois.  A web search for Cho-Chos is what led me to this forum.

I enjoyed learning that there were several other version of Cho-Cho extant.  I do hope that one poisonous attutude won't spoil the fun.

And, Rich, I do appreciate your making your recipe available to us.

Richcreator is ruining our congenial web site.  Sad.  He must have anger issues.  Again, very sad.  This ought to get a rise out of him.  LOL
