The package includes a connecting strap (40) attached to the compartments and enabling the package to stand in an upright position. The rupturable seal is rupturable in order for the products contained within the compartments to be mixed prior to dispensing from the compartmented package. Such a package can be viewed by a consumer on a store shelf, without the need to pick the package up in order to read the information printed on the packages' label.
