  • "Life Savers is an American brand of ring-shaped mints and fruit-flavored hard candy. The candy is known for its distinctive packaging, coming in aluminum foil rolls of eleven pieces.

    In 1912, chocolate manufacturer Clarence Crane (Cleveland, Ohio) invented Life Savers as a "summer candy" that could withstand heat better than chocolate. Since the mints looked like miniature life preservers, he called them Life Savers."
