Notable Inventor

Clarence Crane started out producing chocolate candy in Cleveland, Ohio. During the summer, most people did not buy chocolate because it melted easily in the heat.

 

In 1912, Crane came up with an idea for a new candy. He used a machine that pharmacists utilized to manufacture round flat pills. He punched a hole in the middle of the candy, making it resemble a life preserver. Clarence Crane called his new candy Life Savers.
