Abstract:     An adjustable temperature indicator which, in one preferred embodiment, may take the form of a confectionary lollipop candy having a stem imbedded into the head of the lollipop. A cavity is provided within the lollipop head which houses a temperature sensitive indicator, preferably of a distinctive shape, which is adapted to melt at a predetermined temperature level. Since the temperature sensitive element is completely non-toxic, the confectionary head (including the temperature sensitive element) may be completely ingested without danger of harming the user. Similar structures may be provided in the form of confectionary straws or pacifiers. Confectionary members may be provided with a plurality of temperature sensitive devices, each sensitive to a differing temperature level.

First Claim:
Show all 17 claims
What is claimed is:     1. A temperature sensitive device especially adaptable for use in taking a child's temperature comprising:
  • a confectionary member;
  • means at one end of the confectionary member for holding and retrieving the confectionary member;
  • said member having a hollow interior portion and having transparent portions for viewing said hollow interior portion from either side of said confectionary member;
  • a temperature sensitive element of a predetermined shape positioned within said hollow interior portion and which is clearly observable through said transparent portions due to its contrasting color and shape relative to the transparent portions of the confectionary member through which it is viewed, said element being adapted to change state when elevated to a predetermined temperature level so as to substantially effectively disappear thereby serving as a positive indication of the predetermined temperature level.
