Take the mess out of ice cream on a stick

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.

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.
