Life Savers as a summer candy was invented in 1912 by a candy manufacturer Clarence Crane of Cleveland in Ohio. These are ring shaped mints of an American brand and hard candy of artificially fruit flavored. These candies could bear heat better than chocolate. Crane sold the rights of the peppermint candy to Edward Noble after registering the trademark. To keep the mints fresh Noble created tin-foil wrappers. The first Life Saver flavor was Pep-O-Mint. In 1935, the five-flavor roll was first appeared.
