CONFECTION PACKAGE M'mh 1s, 1930.
Filed March 14, 1929 Patented Mar. 18, 1930 oFFrc PATE ANDREW G. KAPPES, F CI-ITCAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR TO WM. WRIGLEY JR. COM-- IPANY, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, A CORPORATION OF DELAWARE CONFECTION PACKAGE Application filed March 14, 1929.
This invention relates to improvements in confection packages, and more particularly to packages for lozenge shaped chewing confections.
It is customary to package these confections in a wrapper of parafline paper, sealing the flaps by the application of heat to make the package moisture-proof. Moreover, the confections are packed in rows, the several pieces being arranged in fiatwise contact. In a patent granted to Andrew C. Kappes on August 25, 1925, No. 1,550,966, a package is disclosed in which the wrapper of paraffine paper is pressed inwardly between the several pieces With the application of heat, thereby forrning a series of corrugations surrounding the package from end to end. Thepurpose of these corrugations is to provide a retaining recess for each individual piece of confection so that upon opening the package at one end and removing the endmost piece, the remaining pieces will not be dislodged and fall out when carrying the package in the pocket. V
' In addition to the parafiine wrapper, the
complete package includes an outer band or.
label wrapped around the package len thwise with its end portions overlapping on one face of the package and sealed.
The present improvement has to do with the application of this outer band, so as to aid in retaining the inner wrapper in its original corrugated form and to prevent its own displacement from the package.
A package embodying the novel features is disclosed in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of a package before the outer band has been applied showing the corrugated appearance.
Figure 2 is a perspective view of a single lozenge shaped confection.
Figure 3 is a perspective View of a package with the outer band partially folded about it and ready for sealing; and
Figure 4 is a perspective view of the completed package.
For the purpose of this'disclosure, the pack age consists of ten lozenges A arranged edgewise and face to face in a row. These lozenges to are somewhat rounded at their edges and cor- Serial No. 346,963.
ners as shown in Figure 2, and are first enclosed in a wrapper B of parafline impregnated paper, with the end portions folded inwardly and over each other in the usual manner. As thus arranged and wrapped, depressions or crevices are formed between the edges of the lozenges into which the surrounding wrapper is depressed, giving the package the accordion appearance shown in Fi 'ure 3.
is already suggested, the package is subjected to pressure and heat while the wrapper is being applied and after the end portions have been folded this being usually accomplished by advancing the packages through or between electrically heated dies having corrugated surfaces.
The sealed package is then banded by an outer wrapper or band C, consisting preferably of a printed label. In applying this band, the edge portions-c and 0 preferably overlap throughout one of the wider faces of the package, the undermost edge 'portion 0 being first-corrugated to conform with the corrugations in the surface of the package beneath, as shown in Figure 3.
Before the top flap or portion 0 is brought over for sealing, relatively thin lines of-adhesive are applied along the crest of the elevated portions of the lower flap, as at (Z. Thus with the final sealing operation, the adhe sion between the two flaps 0' and 0 is along a series of parallel lines, which act to retain the corrugated form of the under flap, while the upper flap remains smooth thereby concealing the undulations beneath.
From the foregoing it is manifest that the corrugated under flap c becomes relatively fixed in that form, by reason of its several points or lines of adhesion with the upper flap, and the fact that the latter'is flat and tin-corrugated, thus acting as a tension member to retain the corrugations in the under flap, which in turn serve to stiffen or reinforce the corrugations in the paraffine wrapper with which they register. The result therefore is that the entire package is stiffened lengthwise and against elongation, as otherwise there is only the stifiness of the par-affine impregnated wrapper to maintain the corru gations. Furthermore, the particular manner of binding and sealing the outer wrapper or band, holds the latter in place, preventing it from sliding endwise and thus becoming displaced.
l/Vhile in the preferred form illustrated, glue is shown as applied at a) to each of the high points of the corrugation, it is manifest that similar results, can be obtained by applying glue to fewer such points, as for in stance to every other high spot,'or every glued thereto along the'elevated portions of said corrugations.

2. A confection package comprising a plurality of lozenge shaped confections having rounded edges and arranged face to face, a wrapper of moisture proof paper enveloping said confections and sealed with theportions thereof intermediate the ends of the package depressed into the spaces between said confections on all sides, and an outer wrapper surrounding the sealed package lengthwise and having one marginal portion corrugated to conform to the surface beneath, and the other marginal portion overlapping said first mentioned marginal portion and sealed fiatwise along the elevated portions thereof.
3. A confection package comprising a plu- V rality of lozenge shaped confections arranged face to face and shaped to provide recesses between adjacent confections, a Wrapper of 'paraffine paper enveloping said confections and sealed at each end, with the paper pressed into the spaces between the individual confections throughout the central portion of the package to form transverse corrugations on each face thereof, and an outer wrapper surrounding the sealed package with its marginal portions overlapping on one face thereof, the nnderlapping portion being corrugated to conform to the surface'of the package beneath and the over lapping portion being smooth and sealed to the elevated areas of said underlapping por-. tion. .7
i. A method of packaging lozenge-shaped confections having rounded edges, consisting of applying an inner'wrapper, depressing said inner Wrapper into the spaces between the confections, providing an outer wrapper adapted to surround said package with its opposite marginal portions overlapping on extending one face thereof, corrugating the underlapping marginal portion of said outer wrapper to conform to the corrugations in the surface beneath, and sealing the overlapping marginal portion along the elevated portions of the corrugations of said underlapping marginal portion.
5. A method of packaging lozenge shaped confections having rounded edges, consisting of arranging the confections ina row .face to face, applyin a wrapper of moistureproof paper around said confections, deg press ng the wrapper 1nto the spaces between sald confections and seallng the ends thereof by the application of pressure and heat, surrounding the sealed package lengthwise with an outer wrapper, corrugatlng one marginalportion of said outer Wrapper to conform to the surface beneath, applying adhesive to'the elevated portions only of said corrugated marginal portion, and sealing the other marginal portion flatwise over the same.
