  • Patent number: 4070489
    Abstract: A shipping and counter display package, particularly for chocolate bars, in which a carton is provided with a detachable section on its front side. This detachable section covers a crease line located on the bottom side of the package. Symmetrical with the crease line, there are provided in the carton, two slide-in cardboard trays holding a plurality of candy bars and having bent-up rims touching one another. A metal strip is attached on the inside of the rear of the package carton, and covers partially the crease line. The metal strip is connected to the package carton, and is used for holding the package in a display position. The metal strip may be made of sheet aluminum, and is pasted to the interior of the rear side of the package. The detachable section has a rectangular shape, and is located in relation to the crease line so that the candy bars of both trays are partially exposed after the detachable section has been removed.
