Yoo Hoo Cubs

The chocolate drink Yoo-Hoo is more of an east coast thing and as a midwest kid, I never had it.  I had to make my own chocolate with Bosco or Nestles Quik.  I was fine with that because I could make my drink as chocolaty as I wanted.

Yoo-Hoo issued baseball cards for two years, 1993 and 1994. The 1993 set included only retired players, most of them Hall of Famers.  None were Cubs.  A year later the set was a mix of active and retired players and this time a Cub was included.


  1. Ooooh! Another Ryno I'll have to track down!

  2. I grew up on Nestles Quik. It's been a few decades since I scooped some chocolate powder into my milk. That would all change if they started giving away baseball cards with a can.

  3. I recall that in the 1960s, Yogi Berra appeared either in Yoo-Hoo commercials or on the label.
