Yoopers, how is your world's finest chocolate sales going?
We did name brand candy bars one year, it was great until our second wave of sales crossed with Easter and no one was into candy bars any more.
You should check with Connie Cotter and maybe she can order you a shirt in the size that you need. It probably would be a problem this early. I would have last summer, If I had know.

Would you believe the candy bars are selling like hot cakes. (I wonder where that saying came from.) We finally received them last week, handed them out last Monday, and by Tuesday night, folks were coming back for their second and third boxes. Must be good stuff. After all that candy, I'm going to need a specially sized shirt!
SELL LIKE HOT CAKES - "Hot cakes cooked in bear grease or pork lard were popular from earliest times in American. First made of cornmeal, the griddle cakes or pancakes were of course best when served piping hot and were often sold at church benefits, fairs, and other functions. So popular were they that by the beginning of the 19th century ‘to sell like hot cakes’ was a familiar expression for anything that sold very quickly effortlessly, and in quantity." From "Encyclopedia of Word and Phrase Origins" by Robert Hendrickson (Facts on File, New York, 1997)

"That's the best thing since sliced bread"
Bread, you see, used to be sold in unsliced loaves -- a fellow in the 1700's, for instance, who wanted his morning toast would have to carefully carve each slice from a large lumpy loaf with a big knife, which is quite a bother first thing in the morning. Even presuming he mastered the task without losing a finger, he'd then have to invent the electric toaster, which would pretty much blow the whole morning. The advent of mass-produced sliced bread in the mid-20th century was thus seen as a great boon to the human race.

Getting larger sizes than what's on the registration form would not be a problem, just get your form in early.

Any of the World's finest choc candybars that are sold in Michigan are stored in former gypsum mines under the city of Grand Rapids. There are miles of tunnels and some are freezers(mcdonald fries) and others are a steady 55 degrees.
