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.







Sincerely, Diana

I have been searching for the Old Time Cho Cho of the 1950's since 1960.  The one in the small cup, not the ice cream bar.  

"     I have written to most ice cream maker companies with not one reply,
"     paid and filed for info from the US Patent Office and got the patent number from the Dixie cup,
"     tried every recipe I found on Diane's web site and the Internet,
"     Paid over $160 to have them shipped from Tucker's in CA,
"     paid to have them sent from Schells Daily Bar in Temple, PA,  and
"     had friends bring them home from Julie's Olde Tyme Cho Cho, in Reading, PA, and from
"     Wendy's.  
"     The only thing I haven't tried is some drink from Dairy Queen which is supposed to be like it.

None of the above taste like the Original Cho Cho.  Yes, the ones made in PA taste similar to Rich Creator, but they are missing something from the 1950 version.  I even tried Rich Creator a few times, using various vanilla ice cream.  And yes, they taste like the ones made in PA by two different companies.

Let's try to think what the taste was like.  I was thinking maybe a touch of caramel.  Whatever it is, it is definitely missing from everything I have tried so far, and that is over 50 years of research.

Diana herself started this thread by asking for a Cho Cho recipe. This thread has anything but cho cho recipes. People ask where they can be  bought. People tell how much they liked them but I only saw one complete recipe posted and everybody ignores this recipe including Diana. I read all the way through this thread and I didn't see Diana give any thanks to the person posting the only recipe.The recipe by Rich Creator 3 years ago now has the same exact taste as the Cho Cho's sold at the V&S sandwich shop for $1.09 each in Sinking Springs PA today. Thank you Diana for being contemptable.

I really love this kind of ice cream! It's delicious and one of my favorite sweets! Once I found a possibility to order it from serenata.com! Have you tried this already? This is really comfy. The Cho Cho Bars are really good there! (although I cannot see them right now, maybe they're out of stock right now?

Having grown up in the St.Louis area, I remember Cho CHO Ice
cream bars as a kid. I also remember vendors at the old Sportsmans park Cardinal baseball stadium selling
them on warm days at the stadium.

I've never found a real recipe for them, but a friend who worked at a regional ice cream maker once told me that the chocolate malt ice cream also had some flour
added as well as binder to prevent quick melting of
their product. Mixed all ingredients then filled the cups and frozen.  Never found out how much flour was added to the soft Ice cream. I just remember how great they tasted.

I have had something similar to this called a Melo roll.  We are going all the way back to my childhood in the mid sixties.  Have not seen them since, but they were so good, still in my memory bank.

Kindest Regards,
MAM

Absolutely do remember them.  Walked past the bakery
every day on my way to school that sold them.  Every
time I eat a Wendy's chocolate frosty it makes me think
of them.  I've also never had anyone else ever tell me
that they remember them either.  I live in eastern
Pennsylvania, so they evidently were nationwide.  The
cho-cho's that we had didn't have any chocolate crunch
as someone else described.  Just the round frozen
malted ice cream on a stick that you rolled in your
hands to get the paper wrapper off.  I wonder if a
frozen 'frosty' on a stick would taste like the cho-
cho's of past?????

Hi! I am Julie from Julie's Olde-Tyme Cho-Chos in Reading, PA. I brought cho-chos back to the Reading area about 5 years ago, and they are currently sold in several locations locally. Some of those places include: V&S-Sinking Spring, Kwik-Shoppe-Shoemakersville, Hershey Harvest-Laureldale, The Dog House-Reading, T&C's Market-Leesport, and C&R Sandwich Shop in Antietam. I hope that this helps some of you who have been looking for cho-chos to make a comeback. They are very creamy and delicious - and I have been told they taste very much like the originals (I am 27, so I was not around for the original cho-chos). If you do try them, please let me know what you think! I would appreciate if you would "like" my page on Facebook as well. Just search for Julie's Olde-Tyme Cho-Chos. Take care everyone, and Merry Christmas!
