Here's what I found:


I was only able to find these two options on-line.

A)  drugstore.com sells Lifesaver books for $2.99.  Like everything else today, they look weird to me--much too hip!--but they sound close to right, anyway!  Here's what their site says::

"Color of Storybook May Vary

The Adventures of Santa's Rock Candy Band - Featuring Stretch

  • LifeSavers® Roll Candy Sweet Storybook
  • Fun Games Inside

Eight Rolls, net wt 6.8 oz in Assorted Flavors"




B) Nationwide Candy has a seasonal 'out of stock' Valentine's Lifesaver Book.  Because we're closing in on Valentine's Day (from a retail point of view), I wonder whether they will be in stock very shortly--?

"***Seasonal Item-Out of Stock***
Valentines Story Book filled with Lifesavers candy. Cupid is inside and the story is told about what he is up to. A great gift for all.
Each book contains 8 rolls of lifesavers candy. Various flavors may include wild berries, butter rum, tropical fruit and five flavor."

 

I don't know whether either of these options will satisfy you.  The second one comes closer to what I would want, but neither is exactly what I remember from my 1950s/60 childhood.  I guess that figures!

"Lifesavers" according to Amazon. Some are quite interesting (!), but none are on target. Rats!

Old time pictures seem to have disappeared but the boxes with new designs are still available for purchase


It seems as though the old boxes of lifesavers have been phased out but they do still sell these boxes at www.drugstore.com I have also seen them at my local Target Store, CVS and drug store chains around the country, usually at Valentines and Christmas Holiday.

I thought I was the only one who remembers these.


As a child I always got a Lifesaver Candy Book in my stocking. I continued the tradition with all of my children. I always found them at the Dollar Stores or Family Dollar but only at Christmas time.

I have an empty vintage Life Savers Sweet Box probably from the 50s. I bought it, filled with doll shoes & accessories from the 1950s, at a flea market. The box no longer contains the candy, but is a silver box with a Christmas tree decorated with Life Savers. The box indicates it is Volume 5 and that it "contains" (no longer contains) 12 5-cent rolls of candy.
