What Happened to Creme Savers?

There are so many childhood snacks and candies that need to make a comeback as soon as possible. I'm sure we could all name a few right now. I know I'm already counting down the days until I see Dunkaroos hit the shelves again this summer!

While there are many foods that have come and gone over time, there are some that were just so darn good, it's hard to imagine why they were discontinued. Take Creme Savers. You might remember the very popular flavor, Strawberry Cream. Bring back any memories? There were also other flavors like Orange Cream and Raspberry Cream, but you really couldn't go wrong with Strawberries and Cream. I mean, it was so hard to not snag a few bags while waiting on the checkout line at the drugstore. And I'm sure we could all think of someone who had these suckers sitting in their candy dish.

So, whatever happened to these little gems? Why have they disappeared off of our shelves?

A spinoff hardy candy of Life Savers, Creme Savers were produced by Nabisco in the late 90s and were sadly discontinued mid-00s without a clear explanation. Weird, right?

Well, that didn't stop folks online from begging for their return and who could blame them? These beauties brought us back to simpler times in life like snacking on a few from Grandma's candy dish or holding us over in class until the bell rang to let us know it was lunchtime. And if you were a little older when they were a hit, maybe you remember stealing a few from your co-worker's candy dish while they were on a lunch break. Don't worry, we won't judge! There's no doubt the sweet, rich cream flavor brought a smile to our faces.

Sadly, you can't find bags of Creme Savers at big stores like Walmart and Target, not even Amazon. However, there is some good news. There are some brands you can find nowadays that are producing hard candies, which taste very similar to Creme Savers. If you're craving that nostalgic taste of Creme Savers hard candy, then try out Campino Yogurt Fruit Candies.

The reviews are positive and customers seem to be raving about them. Sure, you can just stick with the donut-hole shaped Life Savers, but when you're craving that creamy strawberry flavor, why not check out something that is strangely similar to the real thing.

And who knows, with all of this talk, maybe we'll see Strawberry Creme Savers pop up on our shelves once again.
