I also remember the cho cho's from the late 40's and early 50's. I'm from Harrisburg, Pa. and the cho cho's were round with the base being larger then the top which allowed you to remove the paper covering more easily. There was a round wooden stick in the center of the bottom and when you pulled the paper covering off the top a round circular paper remained around the bottom of the cho cho so you didn't get your hand into the chocolate. The cho cho was a malt flavored light chocolate. I wish you could still buy them because the were SUPER delicious.

You don't have to imagine the flavor of the cho cho anymore, chochome. Didn't you read this thread? The cho cho recipe can be made for you to enjoy and you can let all the kids you know experience the flavor also. You can follow directions, can't you? Live for the moment. Don't live in the past. Follow the cho cho recipe and enjoy life as it used to be today!
I was sitting on the couch tonite and was wondering where they got the name lifesaver for the peppermint candy. The round hard candy that looked like a miniture donut. Which started in 1912. The candy that would not melt in summeer. Oh Yea go on line and get enlightened. What would we do without the computer. It was called a lifesaver because of the shape of the candy. Ok that made sense. Then I thought I wonder if anyone would remember cho cho bars. Sure enough this site came up and away I went. I can only imagine the beautiful flavor of those little dixie cup malted awesome flavored ice cream. The texture and after taste was incredible. Kids today will never experience the things we enjoyed in the old days just simple things in life. No fancy electronics. No Cell phones. We could stay out all day and play with our friends. Not sit in our room and listen to loud music. What a grand life we had. I still miss those cho chos. I miss the real coca cola at the corner drugs store. They called them phosphates. Cola syrup with charged water in many flavors. Lime phosphates were my favorite. Our taste buds were always being tested. Opps I got carried away I hope I did not bore anyone. Thanks for listening, Joel
Engineer3, The Cho Cho's have been found months ago. Haven't you read the comments? Nobody is looking for anything like what you linked to. Are you a troll? or maybe you had too much to drink for the New Year?

I tried the recipe. The recipe is for the Cho Cho not the Cho Cho Bar since I saw the Cho Cho cup picture? Along the way this web site switched to the Cho Cho. I see NOW that it was intended for the Cho Cho Bar. They were not at all the same. I liked the recipe for the Cho Cho. I didn't like the Cho Cho Bar of the 50's. So people should be aware that this site does discuss two different ice creams. I never realized that until a few months ago.
Hey, Snoboard, Go to my website and read all about Cho Cho's and then make your own following my recipe and you will not have any more questions and you will be in the know. Easy as pie. http://webstarts.com/richcreations/
