Life Savers: the iconic round candies “with the hole” have been around since way back in 1912. This selection of the brands classic ads ranges from 1929-1960, showing just how far advertising has come in layout and political correctness. It’s just a guess, but I’m pretty sure the brand would be happy to leave their days of notorious ‘black face’ advertising behind.
