A principal object of the invention is to provide an ornamental frozen confection or edible comestible having not only an ornamental surface having eye appeal, but also taste appeal by providing multiple flavors in the same confection.

A further object of the invention is to provide a frozen confection in which there may be embedded a stick for ease in eating and also provided with a wrapper or container adapted to catch the drippings or fragments from the confection while it is being consumed.

Another object of the invention is to provide a suitable wrapper and stick for a frozen confection which may be simply applied by hand or automatic machinery and which may be readily opened for consumption of the frozen comestible.
