A synthetic resinous nesting cup construction suitable for manual or mechanical or serial dispensing. The cups, in nested condition, each define a recess capable of retaining a dehydrated commestible above a lower wall thereof, the recess being sealed by the engagement of each cup with another nested therein over a predetermined peripheral area adjacent the upper edge of the cup, whereby a substantially uniform force along the axis of a stack of cups is required for each successive separation. The cups are substantially free of other contact when nested. In alternate forms of the invention, the recess is sealed by a soluble or frangible wafer, permitting the cup to be stacked in upside down condition for manual or mechanical separation from a console of table height.
