Random Memory: Life Savers Scented Markers

My nephew is staying over for the school holidays and we've had YouTube on today. One of the videos he has watched has had a man and his son make edible school items out of food items.

For example, they make fake glue sticks out of melted Jolly Ranchers.

Watching the video brought back a very random memory. 

In the summer holiday before I started high school, I shopped for school equipment on the American air force base in England that my US relatives were living at during the time.

One of the things I bought on this shopping trip was a packet of 'Life Savers Scented Markers'.

Life Savers are sweets that are shaped like rubber rings and come in various flavours. I guess the best way I can describe them is they're kind of like fruit Polos.

Anyway, I haven't thought about those scented pens for years until today. I took a look on Google and found an image. Here's what they looked like.

I remember the red pen was cherry and there was also a brown one which tasted like chocolate. I'd hazard a guess that the purple one was grape. I can't remember for sure!

What a random memory, eh?
