Life Savers: 100+ Years of Sweetness

FB IMG 1700243510699As an elementary school kid, I thought,

"When I'm an adult, I want to have 1 of every flavor of Life Saver there is."

This is the outcome of that ridiculous wish!

Of all the countries that have acquired permission to develop and distribute Life Savers™️, Australia appears to have embraced The Candy with a Hole.

Every Christmas, someone--often my Grandma--gave me a Life Savers™️ Storybook. And as an elementary school kid, I thought, "When I'm an adult, I want to have 1 of every flavor of Life Saver there is."
