Yoo-Hoo drinks are chocolate beverages which is a product of a series of experiments done in the kitchen. Yoo-hoo drinks or Yoohoo drinks, to those who do not know that there should be a hyphen between the two words, has a long history. For a part of that history, read more below.
The name Yoo-hoo was already being used for the fruit drinks and was applied to the new chocolate drink. As far as we know, the term Yoo-hoo may have been derived from some of the popular expressions of the day, which led to the naming of some other beverage products, such as Whooppee, Vigor and Moxie. The drink soon became so successful that a major bottler/distributor began distributing Yoo-hoo. Yoo-hoo sales increased and distribution became more widespread.
The following years saw continued success for Yoo-hoo, especially through the efforts of Yogi Berra and his Yankee teammates who supported what was probably the most successful Yoo-hoo advertising campaign in the company’s history. The slogans of “Me-hee for Yoo-hoo” and “The Drink of Champions” were certainly applicable through the representation of the product by the members of the World Champion Yankee teams of the 50s and 60s.
