Welcome to Day #4 of Milk Chocolate Theme Week.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate this holiday today in the U.S. and beyond.
Today's Bosco* milk chocolate bar was distributed by Praim Group (Salem, MA). Praim offers a variety of branded chocolates, through agreements with brand owners.
This sweet bar contained a relatively short list of ingredients: sugar was #1 ingredient followed by whole milk, cocoa butter and cocoa liquor, soy lecithin and vanilla. The bar had an aroma of classic milk chocolate—not that far off from a glass of milk with Bosco Chocolate Syrup (the bar's namesake).
Bosco syrup was introduced in 1928 and is still available from the New Jersey-based company, Bosco Products Inc.
Praim also offered a Bosco "holiday" bar, but it looked to be (from the description online) the same milk chocolate bar as today's, only with a touch of red and green design elements on the wrapper.
