SANITARY HOLDER FOR FROZEN CONFECTIONS.
Application filed June 11, 1923. Serial No. 644,522.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, BERTRAND L. YORK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Oakland, county of Alamenda, and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Sanitary Holders for Frozen Confections, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to holders for frozen confections.
It is the object of the present invention to improve holders of the character referred to, whereby to provide a non-edible holder about the end of which frozen confections may be formed in a manner to obtain secure anchorage, and which will be inexpensive to manufacture and incapable of re-use.
I am aware that it has been proposed heretofore to freeze a confection on the end of a wooden stick, but, in such cases, the stick is not securely attached to the frozen confection and hence the latter may become dislodged in handling. Furthermore, the
stick when thrown away in a park or play-.
ground is liable to be tread upon by children or to be picked up by them and used in a dangerous manner. Moreover, there is a temptation to re-use these wooden sticks, which, of course, would be highly unsanitary.
In carrying out this object I provide a blank of comparatively stifi paper, preferably a paraflined paper, which is cut so t-hat'it may be easily and quickly folded and shaped to produce a conical holder fitted at its end with perforated tabs which may be immersed in a liquid confection mixture in a mold, prior to the freezing thereof, and which will act effectively to maintain the confection in place at the end of the holder when frozen.
One form which my invention may assume is exemplified in the following description and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a holder embodying my invention.
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same shown inverted and with its end projecting into a confection mold.
Fig. 3 is a View of the blank from which the holder is formed.
Fig. 4 is a plan view of the holder.
Fig. 5 is a vertical section through the holder showing a frozen confection formed at. the end thereof.
Referring more particularly to the accompanying drawings, 10 indicates a blank cut out-from comparatively stifi'paper, preferably a paraffined paper. The side edges of this blank converge towards its lower end so that the blank may be shaped to form a conical holder. At the upper end the central portion of the blank is cut away to form tapered tabs 11 located one at each side of the blank. It is intended that when the blank is shaped to form a conical holder that these tabs extend vertically from the center of the large end thereof.
To accomplish this, the blank is creased along the dotted-lines 12, so that the side portions 14 of the blank may be bent at an angle to the central portion 15. The central port-ion 15 may then be folded to form the holder, as shown in Fig. 3. The side portions 15 will then project diametrically across the interior of the holder in contact with each other and in parallel relation, and the tabs will project vertically from the open end of the holder.
To temporarily maintain the blank in this shape, the tabs are cut in a plurality of places to provide locking tongues 16 which may be bent over to secure the tabs together and thereby maintain the blank in folded position. 77
In use, the blank is folded and shaped as described and is inverted and positioned wit-h the tabs and its largerend immersed in a liquid confection mixture in a mold 17, as shown in Fig. 2. This mixture may consist of water containing coloring and flavoring syrup. The mixture is then frozen and will adhere to the tabs and the end of the holder.
The circumference of the mouth of the holder is the same as the inner circumference of the mold, so that when the holder is inverted it will assume a true circular form and be in contact with the walls of the mold throughout the circumference of the latter.
To insure that the holder will be firmly connected to the confection, the tabs and the larger endof the holder are provlded with perforations, 18, so that when the confection is frozen a physical bond will be formed between it and the holder.
As the holder is made of paper, it will not be capable of re-use and will, at the same time, be inexpensive to manufacture. When discarded in a park or playground it is not a source of danger to children.
While I have shown the preferred form of the invention, it is understood that changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit of my invention as disclosed in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. As an article of manufacture, a sanitary holder for frozen confections, comprising an elongated hollow body portion having one end closed, and a tab projecting from the center of the other end in a position to be embedded in the confection.
2. As an article of manufacture, a sanitary 1e holder for frozen confections comprising a hollow, conical body portion and tabs projecting from the center of the large end thereof.
3. As anarticle of manufacture, a sanitary 20 the blank is folded, project from the center 25 of the large end of the body portion.
