Description



From its inception during “The Roaring Twenties” the Yoo-Hoo label has dominated the chocolate drink world. The 1950s, however, was when this popular drink reached the legendary status that it still maintains today. This decade saw the proliferation of Yoo-Hoo advertisements, including official endorsements from the New York Yankees and, specifically, Yogi Berra. The image of Berra draped in pinstripes smiling with a Yoo-Hoo in his hand was a sight to see. In this case, the ad is for an energy bar also produced by the chocolate drink company. The endorsement reads "take it from Hall of Famer Yogi Berra, go Big League with Yoo-Hoo frozen energy bar". An intriguing collectible for Yankee fans and vintage collectors alike.
