l CANDY Wnarrnn f.
Application led August 23, 1927. Serial No.,.214,948.
A verytransparent materials, are highly desir? able, but' because of the inherent nature of the material, moisture is absorbed from the candy, and causes the cellophane or fenestra .(dependingupon which is used), to adhere to the candy, thus making a very'unsatisfactory wrapper, especially in warm weather. The solution of this problem I have obtained by using wax paper or a similar paper as` a major portion of the wrapper, causing sight openings to be formed in a portion of the wrapper directly over .the part of the candy I wish to display and placing cellophane or L fenestra over the sight opening.
f Another object is to provide a package of unique construction for the' vending of candy or similar articles.
IVith this, and other objects in view, the invention resides in the features of construction described, and the principle upon which they operate, arrangementof parts, and the ycombination thereof, which will hereinafter be fully described.
Referring to the drawing v Figure 1 is a perspective of the package; Figure 2 is a section taken through the Wrapper which is removed from the candy; Y and,
Figure 3 is a section takenthrough the" package shown in' Figure 1.
In the drawings, similar parts are designated by like'numerals:- f
A Numeral l designates a candy package v having a wrapper 2, composed of wax or glassine paper 3, and sight openings 4,1 a
transparent material 5, such as cellophane or fenestra covering the said sight opening.
Within the wrapper is shown a piece of candy 6, having a depressed upper surface'7 on which are shown nuts and similar articles 8.
As actually used, the candy'will be placed inthe wrapper so that the portion of the i candy to be displayed will come directly beneath the transparent material'. By having a slight depression in the top of the candy, the candy will not Contact with the transparent material and thus avoid the dan er of thecandy adhering to the wrapper. owever, it has been found that even Without depressing the surface ofthe candy, the candy Will not adhere to any great extent, as the contacting surfacelis so small that there is very little adhesion. The display of the contents of small package goods vis highly desirable and fills a long felt need in the trade.
i It is evidentthat the type of package shown and described herein may bevaricd, and I do not limit myself to the specic type shown herewith; and allow myself the' privilege of applying my invention to the various types of articles which may fall within the scope of my invention.
Although I have specifically described my invention as used in connection with a candy package, I do lnot limit myself `to such use; as the wrapper may be used in connection with cakes. bread, fruits, meats, and many other articles.
Having described my invention, what I claim as new and novel is A candy package comprising a candy piece having a recess in one of its surfaces, a 55 wrapper of material which does not stick readily to the candy piece, and having a sight opening coinciding with the recess formed in said candy piece, anda sheet of transparent material which does stick readily to said candy piece placed over the recess inthe piece and secured to said wrapper out of contact with said' candy piece.
In testimony whereof I aiix my signature.
