The package of Life Savers says, “5 Flavor”. Shouldn’t it be “flavors” (plural)? Why do you think it was left singular? The plural would make it rhyme better too. It’s a peculiar thing.

I haven't seen the packet, but presumably "5 flavor" (should that be hyphenated?) is being used as an adjective, rather than strictly as a quantity + noun.
This old discussion is relevant, since it basically addresses the same grammatical problem: http://www.painintheenglish.com/post.asp?id=334

First link where...? I think I missed something. :)
Do you see the link for candystand.com? It's right underneath the title "Life Savers 5 Flavor". Right on this page. Right above here.
There's a big gap like there's supposed to be something there, but no link. Anyway, I found it myself.
I think the answer is that "5 Flavor" is supposed to be taken as an adjective. What's missing is a hyphen, which would make that clearer.

I stand underdidn't that.
Any discussion of grammar etc in american english is pointless as most if it is completely wrong; you try and shorten/distort as many words as you can, it's ridiculous.
It's flavour, retards.
Gee, Dan, for someone who uses the internet, you sure are provincial as hell. Loser.
