1 Claim.
This invention_relates to containers, and more
particularly to containers for solid and semi
solid products. The container is particularly
adaptable for solid or semi-solid food products,
5 such for vexample as ice-cream.
An object of the invention is a container which
is cheap to manufacture, light and durable in
10 of such- novel construction that the contents
of the container may be conveniently removed as
desired without spilling the contents, or soiling
the ?ngers, during such movement.
Another object of the invention is a container
15 of the class described of such novel construction
as renders it particularly adaptable as a con
tainer for food products which are eaten, or con
sumed, from the container and by which con
struction the surfaces of the container which may
go be contactedduring the eating of the contents
thereof are always sanitary.
ly through the open, or upper, end of the cas
ing I 0. The open end of the bag is secured to
a sleeve l4 also of comparatively rigid material,
and of such diameter as to ?t the outside of the 15
casing I0 in sliding relationship.
This container is particularly adapted for solid
and semi-solid food products, such as ice-cream.»
It is a matter of common knowledge that a great
deal of ice-cream is sold at wayside stands, and 20
soda fountains, in the well known ice-cream cone
which, in itself, also consists of eatable material.
However, when theioe-cream contacts the cone,
it renders the same soft and as the ice-cream
melts it invariably leaks through, or from the 25
cone. Also, children often drop the ice-cream
out of the cone which not only involves the loss
of an anticipated pleasure on the part of the
child, but often the cream drops on clothing, or

Another object, of the invention is a container
(Cl. ' 206-56)
The invention comprises, in its entirety, 9. cas
ing formed of rigid material, such as heavy pa
perboard, metal, or the like, a bottom closure
_ slidably mounted in the casing, a bag formed of
thin, flexible material and having secured to its
50 open end a sleeve of rigid material. The bag is
' suspended in the casing with the sleeve sur
rounding the outer side of the casing. Prefer
ably, the sleeve is slidable on the outside of the

Also, the cones are handled by the clerk when
they are ?lled with ice-cream which, obviously,
produces an undesirable, unsanitary situation.
Some of the disadvantages enumerated are over
come by sealing the ice-cream in small paper 35
containers. However, this necessitates the use ~
of a paper spoon, or some implement to remove
the ice-cream from the container. This method
does not, in all instances, give the same satisfac
tion as eating the ice-cream from the cone.
An important use of my invention is a con
tainer for ice-cream and provides a liquid tight
and sanitary package while at the same time per
mitting the ice-cream to be consumed directly
from the container in similar fashion to that 45
when the ice-cream is sold in the cone,
Referring to Figures 2, 3 and 4, l5 designates _
the contents of the container, such as ice-cream.
The bag 13 is suspended in the casing ID‘. The
ice-cream placed in the bag, and if a complete; 50
sanitary package is desired, a closure It may be
pressed in the top of the bag and casing, as indi- ‘
cated in Figure 2. These packages of ice-cream
are kept in a refrigerator and become frozen

with its contents, is elevated, or pushed, out of the
open end of the casing, as indicated in Figure 3.
The cap or closure I6 may be then conveniently
removed without the aid of any particular instru
ment. The upper portion of the contents I5 may
be then consumed, and as consumed the slidable
10 bottom closure I2 is pressed further in the casing
and a fresh portion of the contents is extruded.
It will be observed, that the upper edge of the
bag I3, extending over the upper edge of the
casing I0, is sanitary inasmuch as it is in a
15 sanitary state at the time the contents I5 is
placed in the bag. Or, in other words, that
portion of the bag which may be contacted by
the lips of the consumer has never been touched
after the bag has received its contents.
As before stated, the sleeve I4 is preferably slid

sleeve I4 downwardly over the outside of the cas

The sleeve I4 may be omitted, and the upper or
open end of the bag secured directly to the upper
end of the casing III, in which event the bottom 10
of the bag may be elevated by pressure upon the
slidable closure I2. Or, the bottom closure I2
may be entirely omitted and the bag elevated
simply by a sliding operation of the sleeve I4.
In either event, the container is liquid tight and 15
may be operated to extrude the contents as de
