Life Savers Soda (Nabisco Brand, 1980s)
Like dropping Mentos into a Diet Coke, dropping a Wintergreen Life Saver into soda produces similar results. That’s not what went wrong here. In initial taste tests in the 1980s, Life Savers Soda did well. It went into stores and the problem was it didn’t explode. This soda would have been like drinking liquid candy. Not a bad thing. It just didn’t take off. Life Savers put their focus back into the original candy.
