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." Although I would occasionally buy Life Savers at the penny candy counter at my local Selden's Department Store, my best stash came each Christmas in the form of the Storybook.


Because of my goal--to have one of every flavor--I did not prioritize having Storybooks. During 2012, the 💯 year anniversary year, I relented and bought one--yet I only saved the box. (However, it's very possible that some of the rolls that were in it are now part of my collection.) Incidentally, there is another book called, "Life Savers 💯 Years of Sharing," which contained six (6@) Pep⭕Mint and Wint⭕Green packages.

The Storybook on the right is from 2023, which I purchased when I realized I had no other Mars Wrigley Confectionery rolls.
