I really remember the Cho-Cho's, my favorite treat way back when.  I wonder why some major ice cream company hasn't tried to come up with something to compare to the Cho-Cho.  I am sure it would be a hit.  I agree about contacting Marc Summers @ Foodnetwork.

Hi Diana,

Imagine my surprise after googling "cho cho ice cream" after a conversation with a co-worker to find a lengthy on-line discussion about them.  I remember them from my youth in the 50's.  My sister and I walked to a little neighborhood store to get them as often as we could! This was in a small town in western Pennsylvania. The flavor was incredible, but I was beginning to believe I had dreamed them up!  Noone else I talk to seems to know about them or remember them.  I'm also in favor of someone releasing them again as long as they have the original taste!

I can't believe I found people discussing Cho Cho Bars. In Oregon, they willed billed as "malted milk on a stick"  They were not round but more of the traditional ice cream slice shape, complete with paper wrappers.  I have been suffering from Cho Cho withdrawal for many years now.

Hi cookie01,

Thank you for your input on the Cho Cho search. Maybe someone will contact Marc Summers at the Food Network and see if he can help.

Take care.

Sincerely, Diana

Hi Diana,

Just to let you know, they were my favorite too.  This was in Everson, Pa.  about 30 miles SE of Pittsburgh. The time frame would have been in the late 40's or early 50's.

For some reason, Bordon's comes to mind. Anybody else remember that name.

George in Hudson Florida.

I have written a letter today to Mauel Dairy in Owen, WI.  I sent them the many comments about Cho Chos on this web site asking them if they could shed any light on where we could find Cho Cho, recipe, etc. etc.  I'll let everyone know if I hear from them.  I have already tried the patent office for the cup, and Tucker's.  I wrote to the city in WI years ago and never received a reply.  I ordered them from Tucker's and they didn't come close and the patent office couldn't tell me anything.  So, I will try this.  I sent it today.

Diana: It's been fascinating reading the posts in re cho chos. I really do miss them, and apparently, there are a few more fans out there.

I just commented to my wife, rhetorically, of course, "I wonder what ever happened to cho chos. Do you remember them? I'm gonna log on to the internet and see if I can find out about them". She indeed remembers them, and I logged on, and that's how I found your forum.

As for the Mauel Dairy, I do have ties to Owen, but they're tenuous at best. I go back annually (almost) for the high school reunions, but that won't be until next July. I'll be sure to ask about the cho chos, God willing. I would guess, however, that the recipe was held by the franchising company, but it is probably quite close to one of those that was posted on your site.  Maybe there's an entrepreneurial opportunity here.

By the way, I didn't really make cho chos, I just filled the cups. That's why I put "made" in quotes.

Thanks for replying.
JJ

Hi JJ,

Thank you for all of your great information on Cho Cho's. Wow, what an amazing and very informative story.

In a way, you are part of the history of Cho Cho's. You actually made them. I'm impressed!

I wonder if the retired son of the Mauel family would consider making them again, although he probably doesn't have the recipe. There are certainly enough people out there from our generation who would buy the product and I know the kids today would love them too!

I remember (back in the 50's) being at grammar school, it would be lunch time and they'd open up the ice cream stand which was near the school's playgroud and I'd run over when they would raise the door of the stand, and I  so looked forward to getting my Cho Cho. I'd buy it (couldn't have cost very much, maybe a nickle), rub it between my hands to soften the ice cream and then lick, lick, lick it until it was all gone. Good memories, huh!

Hope to hear back from you again.



Sincerely, Diana
