I am looking for some appropriate words for packages. I tried looking for images in the web but could not find anything. Have you ever seen these large strings of candy or cookies packages attached one to another. You can buy the whole string or rip one package and buy only one (or two or three).
Anyway, I am looking for appropriate words (and if I can't find them, phrases) to describe these two concepts: 1) A single package and 2) a string of these packages
Specially the second one, I can have several of these strings and count them, so it has to clearly denote this attached series of packages.
You see there are four packages of candy attached to each other. How to call one of these attached strings , and how to call each of the four components...
EDIT2: How about "packages" and "packets"?? As in "A package has n packets"
