Abstract (en)

A multiple cup container device for separately storing two consumables to be later consumed together, has a first cup (14) for storing a first consumable and a second cup (12) for storing a second consumable. Each cup has a flange about its open end. The first cup's flange (22) has a recess (54) therein within which the second cup flange (42) is nested. The nested flanges provide a continuous flat surface there across without any gaps between the flanges. A removable cover (16) seals the container device and removably secures the second cup within the first cup. After removal of the cover, the second cup can be removed from the first cup. The second consumable may then be dispensed within the first cup to allow both consumables to be consumed from the first cup.
