So has any one found a recipe yet for Cho Cho's? I love them and you can find them a few places in berks county, PA. But they are expensive.

I have had a response to the Cho Cho question from the Ice Cream Vendor message board.  Check this out and see if this helps anyone.  I think this will give a bit of information on the original company. Here is the link:

Let me know...
If you can't get into the site, let me know and I'll do some typing.

Well count me in on the Cho Cho Ice Cream hunt.  I must admit, I had never heard of a Cho Cho being in a cup.  Here in Sand Springs, OK...outside of Tulsa...the only Cho Cho that we saw was in the bar shape.  I was born in 1961 and can remember buying them from the ice cream man.  Probably at least through 1970.  There was a company out of Tulsa that had a fleet of trucks (Mel-o-dee)that covered the general area.  I liked the ice cream man so much that as an adult, I was able to buy one of the original trucks that they used...a 1958 Cheverolet truck.  I am getting it close to being restored.  I wanted to sell Cho Cho's so that is how I came across this site.  Does anyone have a picture of the wrappers...I saw the pic of the cup.  I can't believe it is this hard!  The distributor must have been national since everyone seems to have a conncetion to Cho Cho's in some form across the nation.  Any updates?  I have a Cho Cho question request on an Ice Cream Vendor message board.  If I get anything interesting I'll let you know!

I did send an email to the Food Network requesting Marc Summers do an episode on this.  I did receive only a standard reply thanking me for my suggestion!  Maybe if all the CHo Cho fans would go to the Food Network website and use the "contact us" link and send the same request, we could get something done!!!

Hi,  I was looking up Cho Cho bars on the web and lo and behold there are people out there who remember them.  I was a child in the 50's and it was my favoite ice cream.  I've never found any ice cream that compares to that taste.  If there's a recipe out there to duplicate it or better yet a company that makes anything close to it, please let me know.

Hi! I grew up in Albany in the 50's and 60's and I remember the ice cream man coming by with Cho Cho's. Ours were in paper cups that you rubbed between your hands to get the ice cream out. They were so good! We even nicknamed the ice cream man, Cho Cho.

Hi Everyone, I was baking homemade brownies this morning and needed info on baking in a glass pan versus metal, Googled for the information and Diana's site popped-up. Thank you Diana, reducing the temperature 25º worked perfectly.
But on to the topic at hand - Cho-Cho Ice Cream Bars.
This (scroll down past the clown) is what I remember them looking like, not so much a bar but a paper cup with a stick in the middle.
I am originally from Cincinnati and when the Cho-Cho novelty disappeared we substituted with the United Dairy Farmers Chocolate Malt to get the fix!
