What Happened to Creme Savers?
Creme Savers are still available for purchase from many retailers, both online and in physical stores. The flavors available are strawberries and creme, raspberries and creme, and orange and creme. The strawberries-and-creme flavor is the only one offered in both a peg and lay down bag.
Creme Savers were first introduced in 1988. These hard candies were made to be part of the Life Savers brand of candy. In 2002, a sugar-free version of Creme Savers was introduced. The three flavors available in sugar free included strawberries and creme, chocolate and caramel creme.
In Nov. 2004, Kraft Foods announced the sale of its Life Savers and Altoids brands to Wrigley Jr. Company. The sale was worth $1.5 billion and was part of Kraft Foods’ reorganization plan. After selling these two iconic candy brands, Kraft Foods said that it wasn’t leaving the candy industry and planned to continue to sell Toblerone and Milka L’il Scoops, according to the New York Times.
Creme Savers are made from sugar, corn syrup, hydrogenated coconut oil, cream and less than 2 percent of lactic acid, natural and artificial flavors, salt, coloring and soy lecithin. Since ingredients are subject to change, Wrigley Jr. Company keeps the nutrition facts updated on its official website.
