ARTIFACT: Very rare, circa 1930 Kayo Chocolate Soda employee or delivery driver badge. In 1929, Aaron 'Doc' Pashkow, a Russian immigrant invented a widely loved chocolate-based soft drink he named Kayo, after a popular character in the comic-strip Moon Mullins. Prior to Kayo Chocolate Soda, Mr. Pashkow had invented and marketed a chocolate syrup mix that made use of discarded skim milk. The chocolate mix was added to the skim milk and sold as chocolate milk – the mix also was available in a powder form…Carnation was his biggest customer. He sold his company to Capitol Food Industries in 1964. During WWII, Mr. Pashkow collaborated with the United States Army Quartermaster Corps and invented a water soluble chocolate and lemon drink that soldiers could carry in K-rations. The center of the oval badge reads: "KAYO" and beneath shows the number: "15", the outer edge of the badge features an enameled blue ring.
