1. A one-piece completely disposable device for use in cooking, adapted to allow the user to create a stream of food material with a three dimensional ribbon candy appearance with multiple channels, each channel having a peak and a valley, such channel peaks and channel valleys having different colors, comprising:
an elongated envelope having:
(A) a side wall having an inside wall;
(B) a first end for applying a coloring material to said inside wall of said side wall and for inserting such food material into said envelope, wherein coloring means applied to the inside wall of the envelope, which the coloring means includes the coloring material; and
(C) a distal second end having an integral, discharge orifice, said discharge orifice having a first opening for receiving such food material from said elongated envelope and a second opening for discharging the stream of such food material which passes from said envelope through said orifice upon application of external pressure to said side wall;
said discharge orifice having:
(i) an internal wall, wherein the coloring material transferring means are provided in the internal wall leading the coloring material from the coloring means, alongside an edge of the discharge orifice, down to a closed end at an area in an end of the discharge orifice;
(ii) an axis running parallel to a direction in which the stream of such food material passes through said discharge orifice;
(iii) treatment means that: (a) extends inwardly from said internal wall in a direction perpendicular to said axis; and (b) runs longitudinally in a direction parallel to said axis; and wherein said treatment means causes the food material to be split into a multiple number of food portions, alternating between: (a) first portions which are said channel peaks that have been in contact with and have picked up a quantity of coloring material applied to said inside wall of said side wall and which channel peaks carry such quantity of coloring material through said orifice unaffected by said treatment means and thus display the coloring material; and (b) second portions which are said channel valleys that have not been in contact with and do not display any affect from the coloring material applied to said inside wall of said side wall and which channel valleys are exposed by such treatment means as said food material passes through said orifice.
