These serve their purpose as mints, but let me be clear that they most defiantly are not life savers. My brother and I were conducting our annual trans-atlantic crossing, and I had bought this thinking that I was getting a great deal on life saving rings for our yacht. Well a huge storm approached and my brother went over board, I naturally reached straight for my wint-o-green mints livesafer. Much to my dismay this rings were tiny. I had to use both 50 ounce bags just to keep him afloat. I suggest just getting regular sized life saver rings, the wint-o-green was a nice touch though.
I was very disappointed to see that both of these packages have a Best By date in December, 2017. Unfortunately neither Amazon or it's other vendors provide that information online, and there does not seem to be a standard. I will not purchase these again without confirmation of a stale date. The candy is fine for now. but I would have expected a stale date of at least 12 months from the ship date.
This was a decent price for the size, but I was disappointed to realize that they were not sugar free when I received them. I know the listing doesn't say sugar-free, but when I searched for sugar-free Life Savers, this listing came up. I should have read more carefully, but all the other listings were for sugar free products, so I didn't even think twice.
