Yoo-hoo was my choice for Day #6 of Chocolate Beverage Theme Week 2009. I may have tried a Yoo-hoo many, many years ago; however, I couldn't remember what it was exactly. Carbonated chocolate milk perhaps? It was better than I expected it to be.

The label advised me to "Shake It!" and so I did. I mean, who would resist such instructions? The Yoo-hoo name evokes great nostalgia* for many baby boomers. Yoo-hoo Chocolate Drink debuted in the 1920s, and the fun name has helped keep the product afloat since then. Technology company names, like Yahoo!, and even Google (with its catchy mathematical origin), probably owe this company an indirect debt of gratitude. The Yoo-hoo brand may have undergone changes over many years, but the name has stayed.

*Yoo-hoo is definitely on my chocolostalgia list.
