AbstractA container package comprises a plurality of individual containers which each have a hollow polygonal body from which an elongated hollow neck extends. Each hollow body has side walls, a bottom wall and a top shoulder wall. A recess is provided either in the bottom wall or one of the side walls for receiving the neck of an adjacent container in the package. The containers are mated together and form a polyhedron. The containers may have interior volumes which are different from each other so that the containers contain different amounts of materials or may have identical volumes but be shaped differently from each other. At least one of the recesses may also contain a secondary container which, together with a neck of another container, substantially fill the recess.
