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 -

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

If you  wish to participate in this particular discussion about the cho cho, it would be wise and intelligent to read the thread so you don't make idiotic remarks.
I said, on 07-20-2009 @ 10:03 AM  that. . . . . I was born in Reading, PA in 1935, same year as Elvis.
This makes me 73 years of age. In fact, I'll be 74 next week.

You can either enjoy an original cho cho by following my recipe and making it yourself or do without waiting in vain wishing and hoping for some popsicle company to make it for you.

...what is happening here?  Yep, this was a really fun site and I, for one, connected with others who remembered food/school/fun of San Francisco in the 50's.  Sigh.

Also learned that SF wasn't the only city with Cho Cho's.    

I think I am just going to run out and get a malt and forget the quest. It was fun to see the old Cho Cho cup on the site again.
