I also loved the Cho Chos when I was growing up in Montana.  Years later in the 70's I was thrilled to find them in Santa Monica.  They were manufactured in Los Angeles, I noticed, but I never saw them again.  Today I experimented with a Chocolate Malted Milk recipe and it tastes as I remember!!!  So good.

I tried the Richcreator receipe,followed it exactly,used Greyer ice cream,That may be the taste some of you remember of the round pops you talk of but its not the rich,sweet taste of the toffee coated bars we got in Pa.Actually a Wendy's frosty is better.

This thread was started almost 10 years ago...and still alive and kicking, My goodness! As I read the first post by Diana, I can't help but wanting to also know the recipe for Cho Cho ice cream. So does the recipe still exist? I hope someone could point me to the post# for the recipe...if it exists.

Thanks so much.

I never heard of Cho cho's until I moved to Pennyslvania
with my husband.  He grew up on them and they are
delicious.  They sell them at the local ice cream store
near Reading, PA.  I don't like chocolate ice cream so I
was apprehensive about trying one but they are far from
chocolate ice cream.  They come in a cup with a stick in
the middle and you have to warm them up in your hand to
get the cover off.  It's interesting to read some of the
stories on here.

Hi, I lived in St. Louis, Mo. and bought Cho-Cho's at a little Italian
market near my house on Warren St. Now it is the historically renewed
"old French Quarter" but back then it was mainly Italian people in the
area. The streets were cobblestone and the sidewalks were brick laid in
a herringbone design. The Italian street venders would come by every
evening with shave ice & Cinnamon Candy Apples.
The Cho-Cho's I had were on a stick in sort of a paper cup. Slightly
narrower at the top of the ice cream. They were chocolate malt flavor
and did not have any candy or hard dip chocolate on them. They were
wonderful.
This was about 1951 or 52.



Make it a great day,

Diana,

You can still find "original" cho cho's at Schell's Dairy Swirl, located at 4625 5th Street Hwy, Temple, PA, phone number:  610-939-9676.  They may be willing to tell you what's in them and then you can experiment with the recipe until you have a flavor the meets your taste; or they may be willing to part with their recipe.  In any event, good luck.  

Teresa
