Hi, Diana. I'm new here. I noticed your
question about the Cho-Cho ice cream bar. I've never
had them, I'm only nineteen, but I've found a few sites
describing them, and I've seen (and made) something
very similar.  All you need is an ice cream maker, a
basic chocolate ice cream recipe and some malt (the
kind you just stir into milk, like Carnation brand).
Any ice cream recipe can be altered to incorporate
malt. After you make the ice cream, let it stay soft
for a few minutes and push it into 5 oz Dixie cups (or
the like). Place a circle of food-safe cardboard or
parchment paper over the top and push a Popsicle stick
through into the soft ice cream; freeze until hard. Or
just make it easy and use a popsicle mold... Smile

I am so proud to be part of the Spagnolo family from Spagnolo's Ice Cream.  This Ice Cream company was in Harrisburg, PA which has been closed for many years now and once sold the Cho Cho.  They were great and I so miss eating them.  My first memory of a Cho Cho was about age five.  Rolling that cup in my hand, hearing that pop when you pulled it out of the cup and then eating that great tasting frozen malted milk flavored treat was the best part of summer as a child.  I so would like to make a trip to that store in Temple, PA. and see if they have the same thing or not.

I too am part of the Spagnolo family of the former
Spagnolo Ice Cream Company in Harrisburg, PA.  To give
just one example of how popular the Cho Cho's were here
in the 1950's, I will just tell you that a mention of
them, during a private conversation, at small grocery
store in Hershey last week, elicited comments from at
least 4 nearby shoppers.  One women said, "Did you say
something about Cho Cho's?  Where can I get some? I
haven't had one in years.  They were my favorite."

Hi folks,

I'm here to discuss Cho-Chos, somebody brought up old ice cream favorites on facebook and I thought about them, the search led me here and what a great thread it was.  but I skimmed a little and will go back and see what I missed later.

Anyway I want to add what I have to offer to this topic.

My era of Cho-Chos was from approximately 1965 thru sometime in the 70s.  My parents ran a country store which I later helped out at, and we had a selection of ice cream which included the Cho-Cho popsicles, the wrapper had some dark green in it, I can't seem to find a pic of it on the internet though.  These popsicles were standard and not the ones depicted from the earlier days molded in a cup.  It was the malted chocolate ice cream with a chocolate coating with crunchy bits.  For years I have seen the various attempts at these by current brands but they often have vanilla ice cream, never have I tasted a similar one.

As for the pure chocolate malt in a cup, as I recall, the same vendor provided these, they were in a cup and were purely chocolate malt ice cream, I think they were just called Chocolate Malt Cup or something like that but weren't as good as Cho-Chos.

I'd love to both see a picture of the wrapper and have one again, somehow I find it hard to believe somebody somewhere isn't making them.

I have a friend who made Cho Cho's. They received the refrigerated liquid mix from St. Louis. He the just poured the liquid into the cups  capped it with a stick and lid and placed the rack of one dozen into the freezer. This happened in Jackson, TN. in about 1956.

Yours,
JOEL
