Life Savers Holes containers - 1990's. And Canadian Factory Die - 1970's

I had been meaning to dig out my assortment of Life Savers Holes containers and post them, and I finally got to it today.

 

Life Savers Holes were produced in the early 1990's I believe and were, as their name implies, little pellets of candy that were the size of the "hole" from the middle of a normal Life Saver. The concept was novel enough, but its' audience waned, as these haven't been produced for some time.

 

I also have included a shot of a (Canadian) Life Savers factory die, as I was using it to hold the "Holes" containers in place for this photo. The die is a unique piece I picked up some time ago. I was told it was originally acquired in the 1970's, and I know it came from Canada. Beyond that, I don't know much other than that it's pretty cool, and heavy.
