For the Polish village, see Pucko, Poland.

Pucko is a classic Swedish drink made from milk, sugar and chocolate. It was created in 1954 by Arla Foods. It is currently manufactured by Cocio in Denmark.

Pucko is primarily available in 20 cl glass bottles with a screw top, but there is also a somewhat bigger bottle. Pucko is now also sold in cartons. The drink itself is also available in a few variants including a diet version.

While Pucko is sold in most Swedish shops that sells cold beverages, it has become especially associated with Hot dog vendors. To order a "dog with a Pucko" is a common cliché although it is not known how many Swedes actually prefer this combo.

Pucko is also common slang for "idiot" in Swedish.

"A stockholmare, please" (generally "a person from the Swedish capital Stockholm") is used as local slang for "A Pucko, please" in Göteborg (Gothenburg). If you order "a halv-special (a hotdog with mashed potatoes on top) and a stockholmare" you'll get a Halv-special and Pucko in Göteborg.
