Your list is quite as impressive as it is extensive. However, Chocola was not just a food of the seventies...we had a business in the Akron, Ohio area in the 50s and 60s that sold Chocola in bottles from the Norka Beverage Company. Since it is mentioned on this site, I wonder what other details you could provide me on Chocola (what, where, when, etc.) Thanks, A. W. Walker Plano, Texas email:

I grew up 4 blocks away from a Chocola plant on Churchman Ave. just outside of Beech Grove Indiana. We could hear the Chocola truck come jittering by with all the bottles clinking around 2:00 am. For those of you who have never tasted Chocola, it was a delicious cold chocolate drink that some how had not an ounce of dairy in it.

I grew up in Michigan but my mother was born and raised in Indiana and every summer, Mom would load all of us kids in to the station wagon and we would go to Indiana to visit the relatives and see all the places she spent as a child on the farm. The greatest part of going to Indiana for me and my siblings was that we knew we would get a bottle of Chocola when we were heading out on our way home. I am 50 years old now and I still think of Chocola and remember how much we all loved it as children. You could only get Chocola in Indiana when I was a kid or at least it wasn't sold in Michigan that we were aware of and every one of my siblings and I will always instantly think of Chocola when we think of going to Indiana.

Chocola was my favorite drink as a kid. I live in Illinois, just across the river from St Louis, Missouri, and Chocola was available here. My dad use to bring it home in glass bottles that came in a wooden case of 24 returnable bottles. My parents would put the bottles in the shed because they knew that once I saw it, it would be gone. I really miss the taste of an ice cold bottle of Chocola.

Well Choc-ola are all in luck. It just so happens that I recently acquired the rights to the Choc-ola trademark along with the original recipe, manufacturing process and website (not up and running just yet). Like all of you, I have been craving that crazy concoction for years and years. Mid-summer last year I finally decided it was time for someone to revive it...and if it had to be me, then so be it. I own a 50's cafe called the Rock-Cola Cafe ( on Indianapolis' east side in historic Irvington - and I wanted to offer something truly unique for my devoted customers...and Choc-ola seemed the perfect thing. So, I have spent the last 9 months securing the trademark name Choc-ola and the original recipe, exact ingredients and precise manufacturing process. I have already made several test batches with outstanding results (my nephew and son are HOOKED!) All orders for Choc-ola will be coordinated through my restaurant, Rock-Cola Cafe. Initially I will only be selling it in the restaurant by the glass and take-out gallon jugs (all take out orders are for customer pick-up only - "to-your-door" deliveries are not available at this time). You can call in your pre-paid orders effective immediately; however, production won't start until April 5, 2010. So please be patient because I could literally be inundated with orders. You can place your order via credit card by calling 317-357-CAFE. We will call you or email you when your order is ready for pick-up. Any questions, you can call Rock-Cola Café and mention you are interested in Choc-ola and ask for Dan. Looking forward to helping all my Choc-ola buddies get reacquainted with a memorable piece of their past.
