Invented in 1912 by Clarence Crane, a chocolate maker who wanted a sweet product that wouldn't melt in the summer heat...he decided on a peppermint hard candy in the shape of a cirle with a hole in the middle...since they looked like miniature life preservers, he called them Life Savers & registered the trademark...the 1st flavor was Pep-O-Mint in 1912.
