Once the rival of Hershey’s, Bosco has virtually disappeared from grocery shelves in California. Bosco, mmmm, Bosco. Chocolaty goodness in a bottle. Add it to milk, pour it on ice cream, take it straight from the bottle for a chocolate rush the makes your elbows pulse with chocotricity. Bosco, poured on zombies for that "just right" blood look in Night of the Living Dead . Bosco, (Not Hershey’s) was poured down the drain when Marion Crane attempted to wash away her sins and head back to Phoenix at dawn... then Mother intervened.

Bosco, the medium of choice for artist Vik Muniz when he decided to paint the last supper. Bosco Bosco BOSCOOOOOO!
Bosco, first created in New Jersey in 1928 survived the great depression, WWII, the Korean war, Vietnam, The gulf war but sadly not the Terminator era. I guess Cal ee for ni ans just dont like chocolate.
Bosco is unique as a chocolate syrup since it has only natural cocoa with no artificial flavors added. No corn syrup is used in the production of Bosco, only cane sugar. Malt extract is added, which combined with Bosco cocoa powder yields the distinctive Bosco taste.
Bosco was once packaged in glass jars, but, more recently sold in plastic squeeze bottles.

One good thing that came out of New Jersey. Bosco!

They Always Come Back:
Bosco is sold in two supermarket chains in California:
How's Markets and Stater Bros . If you cant find either of these stores try Bosco Online.

Bosco, sometimes a reference to...oh, yes, this is a family oriented site. I'll just leave it at that.

All I can think of is Lenny & Squiggy. Remember the one where Laverne & SHirley won a "SUpermarket Sweep" contest?

Bosco does not taste as good as when we were kids & it was in the glass bottle. I think it was thicker!
