Life Savers Ornomints
Good news Candy Addicts! Our friends over at Wrigley are showing the holiday spirit and want to share some of their great products with Candy Addict readers! We’ve decided to have a Wrigley Trivia Contest to determine who gets the free goods!

Wrigley Heritage Tin - SpearmintThere will be 5 winners, each will receive 3 Wrigley Heritage Tins (Juicy Fruit, Doublemint and Spearmint) and 3 Life Savers Orn-o-mints (in red, green and blue). The first person to submit the correct answers will win one prize pack and the other four winners will be randomly chosen from all correct winners.

Here are the details on the prizes:

Wrigley’s Heritage Tins are decorated as your favorite Wrigley’s flavor, Doublemint(r), Spearmint(r) or Juicy Fruit(r) and contain (12) five-stick packs of gum; four of each of these well loved brands. The vintage inspired tins fit wonderfully in a stocking or add flavor to any holiday coffee table or countertop. Post holidays when the gum has been chewed, the tins can be re-used to organize and store small household or office items.

Life Savers Orn-o-Mints are the perfect holiday gift or entertaining accent and are filled with iconic Life Savers candy. When decorating a tree or your home for the holiday, Life Savers Orn-o-Mints are a perfect compliment. Available in three colors, blue, red and green, the ball shaped “orn-o-mints” are a fun edition to any holiday setting. They can also be used to spice up any holiday gift when tucked next to a gift tag.

    That question gave me a hard time too.I also guessed, because short of calling the Chicago public library or the Wrigley’s historian I couldn’t find anywhere on the net.I now know more about Wrigley’s than I ever wanted or need to for the rest of my life. Good contest though! :)

    Did you know Wrigley’s once had one of the largest neon billboards in Times Square, until they donated the space for the sale of war bonds? How about the Wrigley’s spearmen? Wait, where you going? Remember the wrapper! No, come back just one more.
    Orbit gum name was originally introduced during WWII?
