  • 02/23/17--05:00: DIVISIBLE CONTAINER
  • A divisible container includes first and second halves forming a capsule with a hollow interior for retaining an object. The halves may also include first and second confectionary coatings formed to the exterior for consumption by a user. The halves include spaced projections at the exterior separating the confectionary halves allowing a user to see that a non-edible component is beneath. In an embodiment, upon removal of the confectionary, projections disposed opposite the joint allow a user to separate the joint by biasing the projections away from the joint, disengaging the connection between the halves. In an embodiment, a projection extending from the first half forms a gap, and a projection extending from the second half forms a lower extension that is received within the gap when the halves are joined adding strength to the connection, and limiting rotational movement of the halves and damage to the confectionary coatings.

    A self-combining receptacle for producing a coated or partially-coated product or an admixture product is provided according to the invention. This receptacle can comprise a food service container for finger food like French fries having a sealed package of ketchup or other condiment installed in the bottom of the container and below the French fries where a closure panel extending outside the receptacle is pulled in a lateral direction away from the receptacle to peel off the closure panel to open the condiment package inside the container whereupon the French fries automatically drop down inside the container into the condiment contained in the now-opened condiment package. Alternatively, the self-combining receptacle may comprise two open faced vessels that are fitted together to join their common open faces with a common closure panel sealing the two open faces to divide the two vessels containing separate components of an admixture product. When the closure panel is removed from the receptacle or pierced by means of an integral utensil device, the two product components can be mixed together to produce the admixture product. Such an admixture product may comprise a food dish like fruit, granola pieces, chocolate pieces, or syrup mixed into yogurt or ice cream, or an industrial product like two resin components mixed together to produce an epoxy adhesive.

    The present invention is directed to packaging for fresh cut and dipped or enrobed fruit. The package comprises an outer sleeve and an encapsulating set-up carton board box; the inner compartment comprises internal inserts that secure a molded top and bottom piece that are specifically designed to hold cut pieces of fruit in a ball or “apple” formation (or that hold other fruit parts in different formations). The package was designed to protect, present, and display the fresh cut fruit product “plate-like,” “bowl-like,” or easily sharable form to allow it to be eaten direct from the package while maintaining a premium look and feel.

    An emulsifier process aid may increase the bittering effect of hops in the beer making process, which may reduce the length of time for boiling while using less hops. An emulsifier, such as lecithin, may be added to the hops during pelletization or other processing steps, or may be added to the boil directly. The emulsifier may cause the hop oils to be more readily absorbed into the wort and act as a process aid to increase efficiency of the boil and hops utilization.

    A system and method for controlling blisters. The method begins by mixing the ingredients to form a dough with a moisture content between about 35% and 60%. The dough is sheeted and cut. Thereafter, the dough is pre-heated to reduce the moisture content to between about 10% and about 45%. The preforms are then docked and dehydrated. The docking system, in one embodiment, has a backing plate and a docking device with at least two docking pins of varying lengths. The docking device is adjustable relative to the backing plate. The system also has a removing plate which removes preforms from the docking pins.
