This invention relates to a wrapping or packag

portions of the suckers II. This base portion I1
is connected at each end to side or display por
tions l8 and I9. If desired, the portions l8 and
I9 may be integral with the portion I1, and the 5

sion of such a packaging device or wrapper which
facilitates releasably binding together a plurality
20 of edibles, which will hold them together in ship
ping units'or sub-units suf?ciently securely as to
protect the individual edibles, and which does not
interfere with the characteristics of the edibles
adapting them for display purposes but which in
25 fact improves the’ display characteristics thereof.
Other objects of the invention include the pro
vision of the combinations and arrangements of
elements hereinafter disclosed and claimed, as
illustrated in the accompanying sheet of drawings
30 wherein the reference numerals respectively refer
to the same elements throughout the several views,
and in which:
Figure l is a perspective view of a group of
edibles embraced by a packaging device or wrap
35 per embodying the features of the invention;
Figure 2 is a plan view of the packaging device
or wrapper of the invention in a stage of its
development; and
Figure 3 is a perspective view of the novel
40 packaging device or wrapper alone.
Illustrative of the invention, a plurality of
edibles or suckers ll, each including an edible
portion of, for example, candy that may be en
closed by a wrapper l2, and a handle portion l3
5 are bound together by a novel packinging device
or wrapper I4, as shown in Figure 1. The handle
portion l3 of each sucker preferably is non-rigid
and includes adjacently arranged portions [5
extending into the candy and an intermediate
50 portion l6 connecting the portions [5 and forming
a loop-like con?guration.
The novel wrapper I4 is constructed of card
board, paper, or other suitable packaging mate
rial, and has a base or supporting portion ll of
55 su?icient length to span the thickness of an edible
The member 25 has at its free end an attaching
enlargement or head 2'! providing a shoulder or
abutment 28 and receivable in the vertical slot 23. 20
When the head 21 is inserted in the slot 23 the
shoulder 28 is adapted to engage the tab 2?. above
the ‘slot 24 for releasably holding the packaging
device closed. It is preferred to make the align
ing member and hinge portion from a reduced .25
portion 29 integral with the side portion l9.
To that end the reduced portion 29 is provided
with a generally rectangular aperture 3| which
terminates short of the free end of the portion 29
in substantially a straight edge 3i! and at its other 30
end has an arcuate portion 32. The aperture 3|,
with the arcuate portion 32 thereof, cooperates
with a fold line 33 extending from the free end of
the reduced portion 29 longitudinally thereof to
the straight edge 30, with transverse fold lines 34 35
in the reduced portion 29 at opposite sides of the
aperture 3| near the arcuate portion 32, and with
angularly disposed fold lines 35 diverging from
the arcuate end 32 of the aperture 3! toward the
respective edges of the side portion l9, whereby to 40
permit folding the reduced portion 29 along its
longitudinal center line and to render it swing
able about the hinge provided by the fold lines 34
and 35 to and from a position substantially at
right angles to the face of the side portion l9.
It will be seen that when the reduced portion
29 is so folded, the fold line 33 and the straight.
edge 38 de?ne the latching shoulder or abut
ment 28, and the fold lines 34 and 35 produce
the hinge portion 26, which, by virtue of the
folds and the resiliency of the material from ‘
which the novel packaging device or wrapper
is made, will tend to urge the alignment member
25 up toward the upper end of the vertical slot
23, where the shoulder 28 will engage behind the
tab 22 above the transverse slot 24 for holding opposite said other pdrtion, and a connecting
iportion connected at one end to the end of the

In use, a sucker or suclgers II are placed with other said sidegportion opposite the second said
