  • Patent number: 5840355
    Abstract: A confectionery product that also functions to transmit a greeting or a message to a person receiving the product. The product comprises a rectangular bar of chocolate candy having a top surface provided with a cavity. A wrapper enclosing the candy bar and extending into the cavity is in turn encircled by a tubular heat shrink member. The heat shrink member is in firm engagement with the wrapper that provides access to the cavity so that the greeting card can be personalized and then inserted in one end of the heat shrink member and pushed to a position in the cavity. The resulting product can then be displayed in a flower arrangement or used by itself.
