St. John Bosco Sticks Revisited

Click here for the original post about St. John Bosco Sticks.

Reheating the frozen breadsticks went very well. Its about the same as the original cooking instructions. 400 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes.

Also, Jessica from Catholic Cuisine scoured the Bosco Pizza Company's website and found out the origins of the name. Wonderful news, there is a connection to St. John Bosco himself!

Here is what it says on their page explaining "Who is Johnny Bosco?"

Our mascot, Johnny Bosco, looks like a kid who knows how to have fun, and he sure does! Sometimes, though, a kid and his parents don’t agree on what fun is. When Mark Artinian, founder of Bosco’s Pizza was young, a mischief maker’s parents would utter the empty threat, “I’m going to send you to the St. John Bosco Home for Boys!” At least, the mischief maker always assumed the threat was empty.

We don’t want to say that Mark was a mischievous child but, eventually, Mark’s friends began to call him by the name they heard his parents shouting after him as he ran out the door – Johnny Bosco. The name stuck.

It turns out that St. John Bosco is the patron saint of children, jugglers, and magicians. We think that’s fitting because, here at Bosco’s, we’re all about kids and fun.  Today, of course, Mark is all grown up and his family is very proud of him. But Johnny Bosco remains as a symbol of the fun-loving kid in all of us.
