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

Diana:  after reading your first email (today), I can see why Bruno is confused.    There is a Cho Cho in a cup with a stick and also a Cho Cho Bar.  Both are talked about in the first message and also throughout the message board.  That is the reason for the confusion.  I probably read the first message back when, but not since.  People should be clear about which they are writing about.  My research was on the Cho Cho in the cup, if you refer to my previous messages.

AGAIN, this thread is supposed to be about a recipe for Cho Cho's.

DOES ANYBODY ELSE BESIDES RICH CREATOR HAVE A RECIPE FOR CHO CHO'S?

Been missing Richcreator, dagwood, and Mr_Roarke.  Bruno: same content and same tone.  Same person or family?  Welcome back to your Cho Cho frustration.

I remembered my grandmother giving me that when I was a kid. It was really delicious.

I was intimidated by the world

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.
