Hey T,
Thanks for the memory, as usual.  We had our summer place at Camp Meeker.  Remember the great hot dog place...I think it was Monte Rio.  Started with R.  Ah OH off topic.  Oh we had Cho Cho's in Camp Meeker... I think.  Happy Thanksgiving!  Mimi

aha ChoChos, a summer-winter delight. my Grandmother (RIP) gave us, I was a twin, a nickle on Sunday morning after mass to buy a Cho Cho from the corner grocery store. In San Francisco, every intersection had at least one it seemed.When you picked out your Cho Cho you dug deep in the freezer for the coldest ones, then warm it up by rubbing it between your hands.
This was in the 1940s. We had a summer home in Guerneville on the Russian River, a small grocery next to deSmit's Resort had Cho Chos too.

I have not read many of these posts because I am not familiar with the product.  But I just saw that there had been some recent posts and decided to read the most recent.....Some people are strung a little tight if you ask me....
Y'all have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Wrongnumber, thanks for posting!  Pretty cool picture that you referenced for the address.

If you own a Ford automobile today, is it an immatation because it isn't a 1903 Ford?

Hey Wrongnumber, email me if you wish.  I graduated from MHS in '65.  Got my Cho Chos from the butcher shop in Compton, where I grew up.

Was the Purity truck connected with the Purity Dairy Bar?

Don't let the turkeys get you down.

Scary isn't it?  Too bad but it seems that a stroll down memory is a no no.  I am so sorry but it is what it is.

My first post and I get yelled at, so I guess this is the last post.
BTW, my post was about the 40's....

The Topic is "Cho Cho Ice Cream Bars From the 50's"......NOT THE 60'S, NOT THE 70'S NOT THE 80'S.....BUT THE 50'S...THE 50'S
Also, the Topic is about the ORIGINAL CHO CHO Bars, NOT ALL THE IMITATIONS THAT CAME LATER ON!

Go here http://gallianoparfait.livejournal.com/5529.html and this is what we had in Mendota Ill.
When I was 8 or 9 years old I knew the driver of the "Purity Ice Cream" truck, and about once a week we would catch him at the neighborhood store and con him out of a couple of free Cho Chos.
