YOO-HOO!!! it's a candy bar!
Posted by: Ombligo

Okay, I'm not a huge chocolate freak, and what I like is dark, bitter chocolate.

BUT.. I have always had a thing for Yoo-Hoo chocolate drink (it's great after a saltwater scuba dive). today a student had a bag of - wait for it - Yoo-Hoo Chocolate Bars. OMG!, it's cheap and waxy but it tastes just like the drink. Once I figured out to let it dissolve rather than chew it, I now have a new vice.

I have a friend who always joked about scotch and Yoohoo. Now he'll be able to dunk it in his scotch.

All I remember about the one time I tried Yoohoo (the "drink") is that it tasted like chocolate water. For some reason I was expecting chocolate milk.

Yes that would be my description of it as well.

It literally beckons!

It's a milk chocolate flavored processed vegetable fat product.

(I still laugh when I see generic Velveeta labelled as "cheese flavored processed food product" or something like that).

Velveeta is pasteurized processed cheese food.

14 teaspoons of sugars, mostly HFCS in each 15 ounce bottle of yoohoo
210mg of sodium per 8 ounce serving ( half the bottle) that's almost 20% of daily recommend if you drink the whole bottle.
They claim the transfats content stays just under the threshold that allows them to report the amount as rounded down to zero. It is not zero.
yuck even before you get to the frothy foaming chemicals that keep it consistently thick, help stop setttling and preserve it all.
There's a tiny bit of whey and cocoa flavor.

I noticed "Milk Chocolate Flavored" on the label right away. Flavored? Yikes!

You missed it. We won't ENJOY it now.

I missed nothing. There have been no molecular changes to your taste buds.
It's still your choice to potentially live a healthier life (or not) monitoring what you ingest.
Those labels on the sides of consumables aren't there for punitive reasons.

Our local Dollar Tree (in Oregon) sells yoo-hoo candy bars. I've never bought one. They have a website, so you may be able to order them online. I bought 24 bags of a certain candy once from them and I believe they were delivered to the store for free. LyleH
