Lifesavers Hard Candies come in a variety of minty, fruit, and sweet flavors. Ohio candy manufacturer Clarence Crane invented Lifesavers in 1912 as a "summer candy" able to withstand the high summer temps without melting. They get their name from their likeness to the life saving preservers used to save victims from drowning. This sweet treat celebrated it's 100th Birthday as an American favorite in 2012. Whether purchased by the roll, the case, or the sweet storybook you can't go wrong with Lifesavers candy!
