The 10-year void in the hearts of candy lovers and the purses of grandmothers is being filled with the return of Creme Savers.

The famous treat is back after a decade of being discontinued to supply candy dishes and satisfy the sweet tooth of those who remember them from their youth. The famous hard candy will return to shelves in mid-September at all 1,414 Big Lots locations across 47 states, according to a press release.

Before they were discontinued in 2011, Creme Savers came in fruit, tropical and dessert blends. They are being reintroduced by Mars Wrigley and Iconic Candy with two flavors, Strawberries & Creme and Orange & Creme.

They will come in the original bag and will only be available at Big Lots before your grandparents put them out on their table to compete with Werther's Original for candy dish supremacy.

Creme Savers are the latest brand to be revived by Iconic Candy, which has also brought Reed's, Regal Crown and BarNone candies back to shelves.

The announcement came five days after a hilarious viral tweet about Creme Savers.

"If you remember these, your knee pops when you stand up," @DoctorJonPaul tweeted with a graphic of a bag of the Strawberries & Creme flavor of Creme Savers.

The announcement was met with joy among the Creme Saver appreciation community.
