Yoo-Hoo

Yoo-Hoo was one of my favorite treats as a kid.  So, naturally I have built a massive Yoo-Hoo collection.  Matter of fact, so massive, that I was featured on the Yoo-Hoo website for a number of years as having the largest known collection in the country.  Grab a cold Yoo-Hoo and check out some cool stuff!  More pics coming later!

Here’s a history of Yoo-Hoo that I wrote for the Soda Spectrum publication in 2007:

  1. Hello
    I hope you don’t mind me asking you a question? I’ve just picked up one of the waxed cardboard Yoo-Hoo crates over here in the UK – could you tell me when it might date from? It looks to be exactly the same as the one you have pictured on this page and has ’24 King Size. Yoo Hoo Chocolate Beverage Co. Garfield NJ’ printed on each handle end.
    Many thanks
    Justine
