It's so sad that people are either too lazy or simply incapable of making cho-cho's themselves by following Rich's easy recipe.
I've been making cho-cho's for a year now according to Rich's recipe.
You do without by waiting for someone else to make cho-cho's so you can buy them and they don't taste like a cho-cho anyway.
. . .again . . . so sad! Confused

Wow!  My sister and I were talking about Cho Cho pops just a couple of days ago!  We visited a little shop {Polka Dots} in Panama City Beach, FL that specializes in all kinds of retro things.  We asked the store owner about these blasts from the past and he was going to look into them as well.  I grew up in the late 50's/early 60's in Harrisburg, Pa. and we bought Cho Chos from the local drug store.  Ours were on a stick with the malt or toffee crunchies in the chocolate coating but the malt ice cream was the same.  I was SHOCKED to read posts from people that live near the area that I grew up in...Enola?  Shipoke?  Know them well.  Anyway, Popsicle, get in gear and get these things back on the market!!!  We miss them!

just my addition, Sharon

The Cho Cho I remember was a push up that we rolled between our hands to loosen it in order to push it up. Yummy.

I've been dreamin of Cho Chos for years! I was born and raised in San Francisco and got them from Joe's - the corner store in the Excelsior in the 60's. I think we might have gotten them from the ice cream truck as well. The closest thing I've found to the taste is Wendy's Chocolate Frosty - has a similar malt flavor.

I won a bet.  You both are true to your form.  We have a little side emailings going on about the two of you.  Thanks for the laughs.

On 3-16-2008 Diana had to reprimand bademento for bad mouthing. Looks like bademento needs another reprimand.

Also I noticed bademento posted on 6-26-2008 that she tried to create her own cho-cho recipe and failed. Is she jealous that somebody else succeeded? hmmmmmm!

Richcreator and dagwood have declared that Richcreator's recipe IS THE OLD CHO CHO taste.  I tried it and it may be good, but I don't feel it is the same as in the 50's.  We are entitled to our opinion.  They both get upset when people are still on their quest to find the 50's Cho Cho and they have made this web site mean.  It may be time to shut it down because of both of them, Sad to say.  I can remember when Richcreator put the recipe on line and then he wrote, offended that no one including Diana thanked him.  After all this time I can see we either agree, or he takes another shot at whoever doesn't agree.  This was fun, until ...TextText

Every carnival, circus or school picnic had cho cho's. Malted flavored and easily made soft. You could peel the paper and push the malted ice cream up. I would love to have one today. I think my love for beer today started with the malt that made cho cho's so special.
