Small pic food cakes and sweet ice cream on a stick 027146

Eating ice cream on a stick can be a messy experience. As the ice cream melts, it drips onto the hand of the person holding the stick. Nobody likes the resulting sticky mess when this happens, and we are seeking ways to create a mess-free, handheld ice cream-on-a-stick eating experience.


Please submit a solution for a packaging idea and design that could include a napkin, a bar wrapper or some different packaging supplement that could serve as an absorbent or moisture capture device for melted ice-cream. Be sure to include the following:

1) A written description of how your packaging idea works, and how it will result in a less sticky ice cream stick eating experience.

2) The materials you would use to create your idea

3) An artistic rendering (sketch, mockup, design, etc.) of your packaging idea to show its components and how it works.
