Lifesavers have always been one of my favorite candies. While they tend to appeal to the Werther’s crowd, as a child I loved them. I have fond memories of the 5 delicious flavors: Lime, Pineapple, Cherry, and some others. Really, all I cared about was LIME. I LOVED THEM. However, in 2003 a tragic decision was made to replace my favorite flavor with a disgusting alternative…WATERMELON. I HATE watermelon flavored things. I throw them away as they are an insult to my palette.
For years I lived life dejected, wondering if I would ever taste the magic of Lime Lifesavers again. Then, in 2010 I made a startling discovery. According to Wikipedia “The original five-flavor lineup is still sold in Canada.” Determined, I applied for and obtained a new job that would ensure I would travel to Canada.* Finally, in December 2010 I was reunited with my beloved.
