We didn't have these in Canada that I recall but found this while looking through the internet. Thought it might bring back memories for those of you who used to enjoy them. I love malted anything so I can imagine how good these must have been.

My sister and I were just reminiscing about Cho-Cho Bars.  We used to get them at Mr. Ford's Variety Store in Kansas City in the late 40's and 50's.  I wish I had a recipe but wish I could find a place to buy them even more.  I was very pleased to find so many others remembered them fondly.

The Tucker's Ice Cream site describes Cho Cho's just as I remember them, in a cup with a stick.  And we used to roll them between our palms to pop them out of the cup.  Too bad I live so far from Tucker's!  If anyone has a chance to try them, I'd like to know if it tastes like you remember.

I see you already received the Web site for Tuckers.
I didn't realize there was a 2nd page of msgs.
Hope you were able to make a connection and indulge in a great treat.

I was a young child living in San Francisco when I had my first Cho Cho Bar back in the early  60s. It was sooo good.

I found the following site on the Web and this sttore specifically talks about having the Cho Cho Bar on it's menu under Fountain Items.

Hope this helps.

Diana, how did I find Tucker's Ice cream?  I had
been trying things in Google and what worked was
a search that is:

"chocolate malt ice cream cho cho".

That did it!  I figured everyone tried "cho cho", so
was looking for another approach.  I just wish I
was closer to try it myself.  I am in Seattle, so let
me know if it is the real thing, if so the next time in
Calif,  I will go there myself.

Please check if they make it themselves or buy
from a distributor.

Regards.




Bob

Hi Bob,

That's great. How did you find the website for Tucker's Ice Cream. It's like a miracle.

I live about an hour's drive from Alameda, so one of these days, I'll have to take a drive there and try their Cho Cho's. They certainly sound exactly like the ones I had as a child. I just can't believe it.

Thank you so much, and when I go there, I will bring a container (filled with ice or those Ice Packs) and bring some home and put them in my freezer. I'll also let you know how they taste. I can't wait!!

Sincerely, Diana
Diana's Desserts

Cho Cho lovers of the 50's, check out the following
website.    www.tuckersicecream.com

The description of Cho Cho on the website sounds
like the real deal.  So if you are in the Alameda, CA
area, please check it out and let us know if it is
what you remember.

Bob

Amazing, others remember cho cho's!  Reading
the responses it appears it was not local to Seattle
like I thought, but in several places in the USA.

I think the product was produced in many locations
by local dairy or ice cream makers.

The reason I believe that  is the product I bought
was always perfect.  If you think back to buying
frozen foods shipped from accross country in the
50's, before freeways, often the frozen package
was like an ice block or encrusted with ice.

I suggest checking your local dairy and ice cream
makers and see if they have a website that might
have a history or someone you could call.

I look forward to finding a source for cho cho's or a
recipe.

I am so excited (and relieved!) to FINALLY find people who remember Cho-Cho's!!!!!!

The only one who remembered them was my dad.  The rest of my family thought I was nuts and, over the years, I began to wonder if they were right - LOL!  I could never find anyone else who remembered them.

Thanks much for the reminiscing.  Cho-Cho's were great!
