Fox's U-bet chocolate syrup is a commercial chocolate syrup originally made by H. Fox & Company in Brooklyn, New York starting in 1900. The product is most associated with the egg cream fountain beverage. H. Fox & Company was acquired by US Westminster Foods in 2016.
Fox's was and is the preferred syrup used in both fountain and homemade egg creams in the New York area. The thick syrup was often dispensed with a hand-pump that replaced the lid of the syrup jar. When the company switched to plastic squeeze bottles in 2002 the pump was discontinued. Both U-Bet and Bosco, another brand with NY/NJ roots, use real cocoa. However, U-bet contains dry milk.
Egg cream purists and fans of the original early 20th-century formulation of U-Bet sometimes seek out the kosher-for-Passover version of the syrup, which is made with cane sugar instead of the corn syrup sweetener base used the rest of the year.
