Live Savers Soda!

Two things: Life Savers soda was a thing that existed once. And, it also has never been HSOTD even though not a week goes by when I have a Life Savers and remember that Life Savers soda was a thing that existed once.

Sometime in the 1980s, executives at Life Savers decided that instead of just covering the teeth of America with cavities with their hard candies, they could do it with soda pop too. So Life Savers soda was invented. It was supposed to taste like melted down Life Savers and came in flavors like grape punch, lime punch, orange punch, pineapple, and fruit punch. I don’t remember it ever coming in a can, but it came in a can:

According to Time Magazine, not many people wanted to drink the blended up, sparkling body of a Life Saver and so it didn’t last very long.

The drink, developed in the 1980s, actually fared well in taste tests. But it tanked once in stores. Explained one brand critic, quoted in the 2005 book Brand Failures: “The Life Savers name gave consumers the impression they would be drinking liquid candy.

Err, I thought that drinking liquid candy was the selling point? I mean, if you sniffed at Life Savers soda and it didn’t instantly make all of your teeth fall out and send an insulin syringe shooting into your ass cheek, you’d probably throw it away while screaming, “Nasty, it’s basically like water!” That being said, I can’t believe that a liquid candy soda didn’t become an instant hit. I thought I knew you, America!
