Can you explain what was so hilarious about my recipe?
You seem to have a strange sense of humor.

There was no crunch on the outside of the original cho cho of the 40's. It came in a cup that you rolled in your hands to loosen and remove, creamy & smooth on a stick.

Hey Richcreator...thank you for your postings and especially the recipe with pics.  I can't tell you how hard I was laughing.  I will try mixing the vanilla ice cream with carnation malt.  When I saw your posting I was picturing some compicated mixture and use of an ice cream maker (don't have) and I loved your recipe.  It was hilarious!  Gonna try it; I promise.  As a Cho Cho lover in the 40's I can tell you that cup you posted is the one we here in SF remember.  It never occurred to me that Carnation would have been the producer; hench  California and New York having access to the same product.  Every one of my friends from SF remembers the ChoCho.  I did get to Tucker's in Alameda and it is nothing like the old ChoCho.  By the way, thanks for helping me connect a few dots by showing the malt container!  You have really made me smile and laugh out loud!  Thanks  again, Mimi

Hi Richcreator,

I DO appreciate your contribution to this forum about the Cho Cho's and your recipe. I'm sorry if I hadn't said so earlier but I have been quite busy lately and am just getting to reading the forum. Please except my apologies. You have made some great contributions and given us quite a bit of knowledge and history about Cho Cho's, so thank you so very much.

Sincerely, Diana

I haven't had a chance to try out Rich's Cho Cho formula, but I certainly appreciate him posting.  For me, the Cho Cho is an ice cream bar with some crunch on the outside.  Since it has been about 40 years since I have seen one, I don't remember what the crunch was.  I only saw the bar from the ice cream man who was driving a 1958 chevy ice cream truck.  Since this thread has been going for years, it looks like most of the big cities seemed to have the cup version.  Or, for the more mature reader, it may have started out in the cup and moved to the bar during the 50-60's.  I have never seen a cho cho in the cup here in Oklahoma.  So Cho Cho's seem to mean two things: Cup for some Bar for others.  The Carnation-Popsicle read a few messages up was very interesting.  It basically tells us that a major ice cream mfg. most likely has the orginal formulas...cup & bar.

It seems like I am the only one here old enough to have enjoyed the cho cho in the 40's, when they first came on the market. The Carnation Co. invented the cho cho, and my original recipe uses Carnation Malted Milk powder.
Go to Temple, PA where cho cho's can be bought, and ask people what they think of the cho cho and most people will wonder what you're talking about. The cho cho imitations are not at all like the originals and people do not fuss over them like in the 40's.

I wonder how long it is going to take Diana to express any appreciation or acknowledgement or gratitude for my recipe?

I have an original ad dated Apr.28,1940 that was placed in the L.A.Times for Cho-Cho chocolate malted  ice cream, "AMERICA'S GONE CHO-CHO". The ad shows the cup with the stick[has the clown on the cup], shows illustrations on how to eat the ice cream- 1.Roll cup between hands. 2.Push bottom of cup, etc.,shows a coupon that you can "CLIP NOW" and "take to your dealer" to save 1 cents from the 5 cents price, and goes on th describe the "New Taste Thrill for the Whole Family". I would be happy to post the ad if anyone is interested, only problem being I am not sure how to do that and would need some help.

[quote=Diana]Hi,

This is Diana from this website. I am looking for a recipe for as I call them "Cho Cho Bars". I had them when I was a child in the 50's. I remember having them at school where they would sell ice cream in small individual sizes like Eskimo Pies, and Ice Cream Sanwiches, etc.

These Cho Cho's were a malted flavor ice cream or ice milk that came on a stick and the Cho Cho's were circular. They were wrapped in paper (no plastic wrap back then), and you would roll the Cho Cho in the palms of your hands to soften the ice cream, so you could remove the paper and eat the ice cream.

If anyone remembers these, please let me know, and if anyone has a recipe for them, or a "Malted Flavor Ice Cream", or frozen dessert, I'd really appreciate you sharing it with me.

Thank you in advance.

Ok, Diana, you now have a recipe for a cho cho closest to the original than any other so-called cho cho on the market. You have my permission to include it in your recipes.

Cho-Cho pops were my favorite when I was growing up in Brooklyn, New York in the 50's. I e-mailed foodtimeline.org and asked if they had any information on Cho-Cho pops[with the crunch]and they e-mailed me the following.... According to the records of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office[http://www.uspto.gov]Cho-Cho ice cream novelties were introduced by the Carnation Company June 6, 1939. The trademark was reassigned to the Popsicle Company in 1982. The brand/product expired in 2003. ORIGINAL RECORD HERE:  Word Mark CHO-CHO Goods and Services [CANCELLED] IC 030. US 046. G & S: Ice Cream. FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 19390605 Mark Drawing Code [5] WORDS, LETTERS, AND/OR NUMBERS IN STYLIZED FORM Design Search Code Serial Number 71420448 Filing Date June 13, 1939 Current Filing Basis 1A Original Filing Basis 1A Registration Number 0378236 Registration date June 4, 1940.  Owner[REGISTRANT] Carnation Company CORPORATION DELAWARE 100 West 10th Street Wilmington DELAWARE.  [LAST LISTED OWNER] Popsicle Industries, Inc. UNKNOWN ENGELWOOD, NEW JERSEY Assignment Recorded Type of Mark TRADEMARK Register PRINCIPAL Renewal 2ND RENEWAL 19800604 Live/Dead Indicator DEAD Cancellation Date June 22, 2001    [This is exactly how the information was e-mailed to me. I am not sure if this information helps in the quest?] The e-mail goes on, for another 20 lines, with  the words from  an ad in the Los Angeles Times, April 28, 1940 [p.G3]. The e-mail NOTES: This ad[in the L.A. Times]contains ILLUSTRATIONS of the product and copy of a coupon.  The e-mail[from foodtimeline.org]lastly states- "Many people recall this particular frozen treat with fondness. Some memories here: www.dianasdesserts.com/website/forum/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=6&Topic=32" This is how I found this forum. After reading every post I decided to post the e-mail from foodtimeline in the hopes that it would somehow help. P.S. Sorry for the length of this but I wanted to include everything that was e-mailed to me.

I'll have to try this recipe.  Really, what can it hurt.  My three teenagers will eat anything I put in front of them.  Since they have never had an original Cho Cho, they will not know the difference.  So, if I don't like the way they taste, I don't have to worry about them going to waste.
