  • Patent number: 5364653
    Abstract: A confectionary candy product is formed by first preparing by squeezing a fruit to form a fruit concentrate of 40 to 60 weight percent of solids either directly or by freeze-drying and reconstituting with water to that solids content. The fruit preferably is passion fruit, guava, mango, pineapple or papaya. The fruit concentrate in the amount of from 5 to 30 weight percent is mixed with from 50 to 90 weight percent of a sweet-flavored or fruit-flavored compound coating to form a base mixture to which from preferably 15 to 25 weight percent of chopped or small whole nuts are admixed. The resultant final mixture is formed into predetermined volumetric shapes by hand or in a mold, chilled to set the final product, removed from the chiller and the final product then packaged.

  • Patent number: 4759457
    Abstract: A tamper-proof, tamper-edvident package includes a pill, capsule, ingestible or medicant bottle-holding container and a sealing lig thereover. The lid includes a flexible lip with a conical sealing surface surrounding the container and in angular juxtaposition upon assembly with a more rigid conical sealing surface on the container. A vacuum is drawn in a fixture holding the container and lid by evacuation of air. Upon subsequent exposure of the container/lid exteriors to ambient environmental air the flexible lip is snapped tight by differential pressure (higher on the exterior of the package) so that the lip sealing surface which was at an angle to the container seal surface, is in parallelism with the container seal surface resulting in a wide sealing band which is not breakable by normal hand pulling or twisting.
