I haven't heard of Cocoa Marsh in ages, I used to see advertisements for it as a kid watching WRGB from Schectady, NY. I remember the pump was a big deal. Never had it though, like an earlier poster, Nestle Quik was the additive that ended up in the grocery cart. Not sure if I even saw it in the stores in the Mid Hudson Valley, but remember one of those syrup products that was called a "milk amplifier" which tickled me as I was starting to play electric guitar.

I remember Cocoa Marsh being the sponsor of a kid's show I used to watch with Claude Kirshner and Clownie.  Can anyone remember the name of the show? I can't remember a single thing about that show other than the Cocoa Marsh ads.

The show was called Super Circus and Claude Kirschner was the ringmaster.

I think that's an earlier show. The one broadcast by WOR (Ch. 9) out of NYC was called Terrytoons Circus.

In Phila. & the Delaware Valley, Cocoa Marsh was advertised on "Popeye Theatre" with "Our Gal Sal", Sally Starr. WFIL channel six. Sally did live spots between the cartoons. She is now 86, & lives in Atco, NJ.

Cocoa Marsh also brings back memories for me with kids singing Marsh, Marsh, Cocoa Marsh.
It was Bosco and Fox's U bet in my house because the big turn off for me was that I always associated Cocoa Marsh with Marshmallows and I never cared for them.
Seems I missed out.

Thanks all for bringing back a bit of my childhood

Just looked at this old thread...I remember Cocoa Marsh was a sponsor on a very old kids show from the early 50's: Pat Michael's Magic Cottage...I think that's where I first heard of that great chocolate syrup..We're using Bosco again, since it is carried by all supermarkets around here...MUCH thiicker tan Hershey's!

The show was on WOR in NY (Channel 9). It was called, I believe "Claude Kirshner's Cartoon Circus. Clownie was a hand puppet with an incredibly irritating voice.  Cocoa Marsh was the first of the major syrups to have a pump so I wanted my mother to get it but she refused because we were a Nestle's Quick family. Soon after that Bosco, which sponsored Officer Joe Bolton's Three Stooges show on Channel 5 (WNEW?), also came out with a pump. My mother did buy that a couple of times.  Thinking back to the Kirshner show, I imagine it might have been the cheapest set in television history. He was basically in a telephone booth with one stationary camera and the circus ring was about 18" in diameter.

LEETHEBARD, you hit on a good one in Cocoa Marsh ! It was the only way I drank milk as a kid since I hated white milk. It's too bad that the Taylor - Reed company didn't keep this product going, it was superior to the other brands. From what I have read, the company just didn't want to modernize and keep up  with the complications of advertising and merchandising. I also e-mailed Kellog's about the possibility of bringing back Kellog's Concentrate cereal but they said consumer demand does not warrant its production.

This old thread never dies...I only wish Cocoa Marsh would have lived as long. I still buy Bosco, but my taste buds don't remember if today's Bosco is the same formula. I hope it is. I just hate it when a new concotion tries to pass as a classic brand...Today's coke with corn syrup...today's KFC chicken...rtc...etc.
     At least we have our memories of Cocoa Marsh.

Don't think I ever tried Cocoa Marsh.  I liked Nesquik as a kid when they were still just calling it Nestle's "Quik".  I bought some last week and it had a really artificial flavor to it.  
 
I tried Bosco a few times after hearing George Costanza talk about it on "Seinfeld" and just never liked it.  
 
Have loved Hershey's since I was a kid and still do though I am currently mourning the loss of their WHOPPERS line of malted chocolate syrup.  A friend of mine who works for Hershey's confirmed to me that it is no longer in production.  
 
My all-time favorite has to be Fox's U-Bet.  The grocery store in my building sells it for $4.99 but Economy Candy on the Lower East Side has it for $2.99.  Score!

They also made 'E-Z Pop" popcorn, if that will jog anybody's memory.

But Cocoa Marsh must have been an NE "thing"; it never made it as far west as Pittsburgh.  And I'd certainly know as I had to have chocolate in my milk - Hershey's, Bosco, Nesquick, or, in a pinch, Ovaltine.

Bosco was more popular, and we would occasionally buy Hershey's in the little can or Nestle's Quik, but our regular was Cocoa Marsh. I loved the pump as it reminded me of soda fountains.
