Place of Origin

Maker Life Savers

Maker Details Life Savers candy was first created in 1912 by Clarence Crane, a Cleveland, Ohio, candy maker and father of the famed poet Hart Crane. Crane developed a line of hard mints but did not have the space or machinery to make them. He contracted with a pill manufacturer to press the mints into shape. In 1913, Crane sold the formula for his Life Savers candy to Edward Noble of Gouverneur, NY. Noble promoted the candy at the cash registers of saloons, cigar stores, drug stores, barber shops, and restaurants. He had the candy placed, with a five-cent price, near the cash register.
