Bosco Chocolate Syrup is a brand of chocolate syrup first produced in 1928. The company which produces it is based in New Jerseymarker, and it is sold throughout the United States, Western Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Production process

Bulk materials are added via automatic measuring devices into stainless steel cooking vats. Minor ingredients and flavorings are blended into the batch separately, through a custom blender device, following product handling and quality assurance codes.

While in the vats, Bosco is pasteurized for product uniformity and then cooled for bottling. Computers measure and monitor the product temperatures.Malt extract is added, which combined with Bosco cocoa powder yields the distinctive Bosco taste.

Bosco was once packaged in glass jars, but is now sold in plastic squeeze bottles.


In addition to common uses of chocolate syrup (over ice cream, mixed in milk) Bosco’s consistency lends itself to being a toast spread—saturating it but not soaking through.

Non Culinary Uses

Make-up artist Jack Barron famously used Bosco Chocolate Syrup as fake blood in the shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's black and white masterpiece Psycho (1960). This same technique was reportedly used in other black and white horror films, including Night of the Living Dead (1968).

Vik Muniz, a modern artist, is famous for recreating well-known works of art, such as The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci entirely in Bosco Chocolate Syrup. A Bosco portrait by Muniz sold for $110,000 in 2007.

In the Seinfeld episode "The Secret Code", George Costanza reveals his ATM PIN "Bosco" to J. Peterman's mother on her deathbed, who in turn repeats the words as she dies.
