Some treats that we loved as kids are now long gone.

But you can have a glass of nostalgia once again, because Choc-Ola is back.

The chocolatey drink was first introduced back in 1944 in Indianapolis and enjoyed its hey-day back in the 60s and 70s.

The drink disappeared sometime in the 90’s, until now.

An Indianapolis restaurant owner who wanted to serve it found its trademark rights were up-for-grabs, so he seized the opportunity.

Now he is selling it to grocery stores too, and Martin's Super Markets has first dibs.

Martin’s Super Markets were touting Choc-Ola's return with the drink's new spokesman, Indiana basketball legend Bobby Plump.

Plump said, “The number of people just in Martin's Super Markets that I have met say, ‘Oh yeah, I've had that, that brings back great memories!’”

Martin's will be selling Choc-Ola exclusively for the next eight weeks then other stores will join in.
