Patented Óct. 20, 1942 . 2,299,511 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,299,511 CANDY PACKAGE Irene Pecheur Steiner, Kew Gardens, N. Y. ApplicatiOn April 19, 1941, Serial N0. 389,433 5 Claims. (Cl. S19-180) This invention relates to packaged goods and disk of the roll and I twist the other end as at I5 to form a nare I6. The eiîect is much en has for its object the provision of a device which may be used as a token on festive occasions. hanced by having the twisted end of yellow color as indicated at Il in Figure 4, while the proxi wrap candy wafers in such manner that the roll Cl mate portion of the wrapping is red as indicated will resemble a lighted candle. A still further by the numeral I8, and the larger portion is An important object of the invention is to object is to add to such simulation of a candle a support which will aid in holding the candle erect and add materially to the effect, more clearly resembling a candle by virtue of the added stand. Other objects of the invention are particularly pointed out in the claims and relate to details. It is well recognized at the present time that between two goods of substantially the same quality and grade the public will largely support the more attractively packed goods. By the present invention the cost of the wrapper for colored candy wafers is increased in price but the attractiveness of the package is increased in much greater proportion. The sleeve later de scribed in detail, also adds to the cost and may transparent as indicated at I9. rI'he name of the goods is printed as at 20 close to the bottom end of the roll which is the end of the wrapper which is folded hat as at I4. The simulation of a candle is further effected by the provision of imitations of the flowing wax of the candle as at 2|. In Figure 2 the wrapper has been shown as entirely uncolored but Figure 2 is otherwise my preferred form. It will be understood that the yellow col ored portion I‘I forms the flare I6 simulating the name of the candle and that portions of the red may, if desired, extend into such flared portions. The collar or sleeve 25 is formed of the blank 20 shown in Figure 3 in which the strip 26 forms a cylinder which ñts somewhat snugly but freely slidable on the wrapped candy roll and it has a or may not be sold with the Wrapped candies but series of projections 2l here shown as triangular l when so sold with the candy roll it lends itself portions hallowed to form V’s which readily bend to a most attractive display not only in the retail 25 downwardly to form the radially extending feet store but when purchased for use at a party, as Se oi Figure l. Where the feet are not cut away a table decoration and a favor, for example. as at 3l I ñnd it advisable to indent the outer The invention has been described in its pre margins of each tab as at Stia in a line such as ferred form and with a few modiñcations but it 33 of Figure 5. should be borne in mind that the invention is , to be limited only as deñnitely called for in the claims as it may take many forms some of which may not suggest in the slightest a candle or any The length of the rectangle 26 is greater than the circumference of the roll to provide one or more extended portions 35 for convenient over lapping. I ñnd it convenient to print on the thing resembling a candle. wrapper a line 36 to serve as a guide in wrapping In the drawing: w Ul the candy wafers or disks. By having this line Figure 1 is a perspective view of my device in as the bottom margin the iiare will be most its preferred form. effective, particularly when colored as generally Figure 2 shows the package as sold. intended. ' Figure 3 is a plan view of the blank forming When the candy roll is formed the sleeve is the sleeve. 40 placed around it somewhat centrally and the end Figure 4 shows the wrapper. 35 is secured to the opposite portion of the sleeve Figure 5 shows a modified form of tab or ex blank forming the main cylinder of the stand` tension. The several projections being integral with the Figure 6 is a modiñcation showing a candy bar of prism form. portion 23 will follow the curve or cylinder and In its preferred form the invention consists of these projections will therefore lie flat against a plurality of candy disks or wafers I0 usually the candy. When ready for use the sleeve is slid of white material for the peppermint and winter toward the folded end Iâ until its bottom margin grecn, yellow for the lemon, a much darker color, is alined with the lower edge of the roll. The such as at II, for the licorice, etc. These candy 50 projections or extensions are now bent outwardly wafers are assembled in cylindrical form and are completely covered by a wrapper I2 which I pre so as to form the horizontal feet 3o which not only add stability but likewise add a very pleasing fer to make of cellophane. Differing from ordi effect. It is my preference that the sleeve blank nary wrapping I prefer that one end of the wrap be of brightly colored material and that it shall per as at I 4 be folded flat against the bottom 55 be of such axial length as to completely hide the 2 2,299,511 advertising material 2i), which is clearly visible when the sleeve is in mid position. I also intend to sell the candy package with roll when the sleeve is in mid-position but bend able so as to extend radially outward as sup porting feet when the sleeve has been moved downwardly with its lower margin in alinement out the sleeve. In such case a somewhat less expensive base can be supplied as for instance Ul With the base. 2. In combination, a plurality of candy disks, a simple disk which may be secured in any de a wrapper encasing the disks to form an elon sired manner to the flat end I4 of the candy gated cylinder, a sleeve slidable on the cylinder, roll. A very simple expedient would be a non and a series of projections slidable with the sleeve sticking glue to the flat end of the roll and the cooperating non-sticking glue to the stand. As 10 and engaging the cylinder but bendable to form radially extending feet to afford greater stability in envelopes now on the market, when these to the cylinder when standing erect on its base. two adhesives are pressed together» they form 3. In combination a plurality of candy disks, a wrapper encasing the disks to form an elon In the modification shown in Figure 6 the arti cle shown is a candy bar 33 having a triangular 15 gated body, a slidable sleeve ñtting said body, and a series of projections extending from the cross-section. The sleeve or collar 25a in this sleeve along said body to occupy minimum space case is likewise triangular in cross-section toV when packed but bendable outwardly from the match the prism and the extensions 36h fold body to form radially extending feet to furnish outwardly as before but along a perfectly straight line 39. In this case the ends of the projection 20 support for the body when the sleeve is moved downwardly on the body to its end which is now are not pointed but are of ilower-like formation as at 40. As pointed out previously the exten its bottom. sions for tabs forming the feet may be of any 4. In combination, an elongated edible article, shape as indicated by the several formations 38a a wrapper therefor, folded» at one end and twisted at the other end, a sleeve having a portion slid and 3919. able along the wrapped article and a series of What I claim is: projections integral with said portion and form 1. In combination, a plurality of circular disks of candy, a wrapper centrally transparent in part ing extensions thereof bendable to produce out wardly extending feet to support the article in to encase the disks as a roll, one end of the wrapper being folded tightly against one end 30 an upright position. a secure seal. disk to form a base and the other Wrapper end being brightly colored and twisted to form a ñare simulating a flame beyond the opposite end disk, a sleeve freely slidable on the wrapped roll, and a plurality of projecting portions extending from the sleeve toward the base closely adjacent the 5.
