Does anybody remember the name of the company who manufactured the Cho-Cho's sold in Oklahoma in the 50's? They came in a crinkly white paper cover with yellow and green writing and I think maybe a picture of a clown? They came in a plain large brown cardboard box. The bars were, I think, long and flat and rounded on the top, kind of like the Eskimo Pie bars are shaped now. Seems like there was a hump in the middle over the stick.

Best regards, Debra

Hi Martha,

When you return I'd love for you to submit your recipes for Malted Brownies, and Malt Flavored Ice Cream.
I've never made malted brownies, sounds good.

Have a good trip.

Sincerely, Diana

Diana,
I might have a malt flavored ice cream recipe. Not sure. It will take some looking through old recipes. I will pass along a malted brownie recipe I have that is very good. I love the flavor of malt in food and drinks.
I am going out of town for the week so it will be when I return.
Martha  

Sincerely, Martha

I can't believe somebody else remembers Cho-Cho's! They came in a big plain cardboard box and the individual wrappers, as I recall, were yellow and green and may have had a clown on them. The chocolate covering had these malted milk crunchies in it and the ice cream itself, texture, flavor and everything was heavenly! I couldn't wait to get home every day and eat one of them! I lived in Agra, Oklahoma, at the time, with my grandmother who raised me. Can any one tell me if they are still made anywhere or even who made them so long ago? Thanks!!!

Best regards, Debra

I grew up in the Midwest, Rockford, Illinois.  I'll keep searching and maybe we will come up with something.  Cho Cho Bars were VERY delicious.

Hi Patty,

Thanks for responding to me post on the Discussion Forum. No I haven't had any luck either. No one, except yourself has replied to my post on Cho Cho Bars. There must be people, (other than you and I) that had them and someone must have a recipe.

I also did a search on the internet with no results. They were so good, weren't they?

Well, if I get any responses, I will post the information here, and if anyone has a recipe, I'll put it on my website under Frozen Desserts in My Recipe Book on this website.

Good luck, and who knows maybe someones will know something.

Where did you grow up at, if you don't mind me asking. I grew up in San Francisco, and I thought maybe they might be a local treat of some kind.

Sincerely, Diana

Hi Diana,

I remember Cho Cho Bars from the 50's very well.  I really loved them and purchased them from the corner candy store.  I have searched off and on through the internet to see if anyone else remembered them or had a recipe but haven't been successful until your post.

Have you had any results?

Patty

Hi,

This is Diana from this website. I am looking for a recipe for as I call them "Cho Cho Bars". I had them when I was a child in the 50's. I remember having them at school where they would sell ice cream in small individual sizes like Eskimo Pies, and Ice Cream Sanwiches, etc.

These Cho Cho's were a malted flavor ice cream or ice milk that came on a stick and the Cho Cho's were circular. They were wrapped in paper (no plastic wrap back then), and you would roll the Cho Cho in the palms of your hands to soften the ice cream, so you could remove the paper and eat the ice cream.

If anyone remembers these, please let me know, and if anyone has a recipe for them, or a "Malted Flavor Ice Cream", or frozen dessert, I'd really appreciate you sharing it with me.

Thank you in advance.
