Love Me Tenders/Cubs T-Shirts

Okay, first things first. We sincerely want to thank everyone who’s reached out to us with blog comments or by email regarding our Love Me Tenders/Cubs T-shirt promo. We’re truly blown away by the overwhelming response to yesterday’s MLB.COM story.

In response to the incredible reaction from Cubs players and Cubs fans (across the nation), we set out to find a way to get as many of you a t-shirt of your own (and maybe to try our delicious Love Me Tenders along the way). To make this possible, we’ve entered into an agreement with Major League Baseball that allows us to run this promotion in the Chicagoland area.  We are NOT currently legally allowed to sell the shirts.  We’re also not allowed to run the promotion outside of this area.  BUT we are seeking guidance as to how we might be able to do so.

In short… there’s still a glimmer of hope for you out-of-towners! If it were up to us, you’d all be rockin’ a comfy new LMT shirt to show the Cubs some real post-season Love, so we’re working very hard right now to figure out a legitimate way to get T-shirts out to all you Cubs faithful. NO guarantees, but we’re doing our best … stay tuned to our blog for updates …

And, of course, Go Cubs!


Holy Chicken! Love Me Tenders is proud to introduce the Love Me Tenders/Chicago Cubs T-Shirt. Now you can wear the same T-shirt as your favorite Cubs players—all you have to do is purchase 4 bags of Love Me Tenders chicken (of any variety).*

  27. chris childress says:

    way down in louisiana…would like to buy a shirt, and some chicken if possible….

  28. Jeff says:

    Please, please, please can we buy them directly. No tenders in Kansas City area. I have four kids and I promise to buy them the next time I am even close to a place they are sold!! Thank you and God Bless!

  29. Rick Clark says:

    deep in the heart of Texas, would like to get two of these shirts.

  30. Tadillac says:

    I live in Chicago, I’m just impatient. I’ll pick up 4 bags of Love Me Tenders on the way home from work but would like my shirt this week. Any chance I can stop by and get one? Looks like you have some fans, just put the shirt up for sale already!

  31. Sammy says:

    I realize your goal is to sell chicken, but making the shirts available to people who live outside your target market is a smart idea. Cubs fans live and travel all over the country, so we are a mobile market.
    Please make the shirts available for sale so that we can wear them proudly and buy some chicken when we are back in the Windy city.

  32. Brian says:

    Tennessee here. Would love a shirt… I want some chicken too… and a World Series win as well. Go Cubs Go! C’mon, lemme buy a shirt.

  33. Oakey Gaskill says:

    I HAVE to get one of these shirts but same as everybody else I’m out of the area and your product isn’t sold here in Tennessee. What can I do??????? Somebody please help

  34. melissa says:

    I live in NM and we are Cubs fans, we don’t get your product here and I also would love to purchase a shirt, can we just buy one?!
    Thanks!! Go Cubs!!

  35. Travis says:

    Definitely no love me tenders in east tx.
    I promise I bought them groing up in IL!
    How can I get that shirt?

  36. Deegs says:

    same problem out here in Connecticut, please put shirts on sale!

  37. josh hubbard says:

    I also live in the st. louis area and am interested in the cubs t shirt. How do I get one?

  38. Rob Schindler says:

    are the shirts available to buy if I live outside the market where you sell your product? I am in Michigan. Any info would be appreciated.

  39. Brian says:

    You ought to sell these shirts from your website because it sounds like there are a lot of people out there that want them. Like all of them I live where your product is not available, however I would love a shirt.

  40. Californian says:

    From so-cal looking for a shirt as well. I’d love to buy your product if I could. Please count up 4x margin on your product then I’ll add that to the check. Sound like a plan? So what’s the margin?

  41. Mike says:

    I would lke to get one also but the product isn’t sold in Kansas City. How can I get my hands on one?

  42. Tom from Arizona says:

    Forget the UPCs. Love Me Tenders should just sell the shirts on line for $25 plus shipping. You would make a fortune!! Probably sell thousands across the US in a few days. I’ll check back in a day or two and buy my mine.

  43. Neil says:

    I live in Vegas and WANT a LOVE ME TENDERS t-shirt…what’s the probability of selling them outright without a purchase of your foods? I promise to check them out the next time I visit Chicago!!!

  44. Kathy from Nashville, TN says:

    I definitely want this shirt!!!!! These products are not available in Nashville, though. Go, Cubs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. Pat D says:

    Another Florida Cubbie fan. Would be willing to order your chicken (and shirt) on-line or just purchase shirt outright! Hope you’ve printed a bunch of em’
    Are there any on line merchants that sell your product?

  46. Shellie in DC says:

    I’m already stuck in a place without my Cubs, without Love Me Tenders, and now I can’t get a shirt….c’mon PLLLLEEEEEEEEASE, PRETTY PLEASE! Make more shirts and sell them.

  47. jake jones says:

    way down in Beaumont, Texas… Wanted a shirt, now I want some love me tenders too! How can I get both? Go Cubs Go!

  48. Amy says:

    Ditto … how can I get one of these if the product is not offered in my area? Please let me know! Thanks!

  49. Charles in Omaha says:

    would love to get a shirt in Omaha, where we get the Cubbies on the radio, but do not have your product in the stores.

  50. Kelly says:

    Another loyal cubs fan and not in an area that can purchase your product. I live in San Diego and in the military getting ready to go to Korea for a year and would love to be able to buy a couple of these shirts. Please let me know how I can get them. Thanks

    GO CUBS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  51. john says:

    like the others I need a shirt but live in Tennessee

  52. Chris from Pittsburgh says:

    Ditto what everyone else said about how to get a shirt when you’re not in the sales area. What do you want me to do — wear a Pirates shirt? I’m not that desperate yet.

  53. Christine says:

    Ditto, I’m a huge Cubs fan, in San Francisco, but can’t buy your chicken locally and am desperate for a t-shirt! Can they be purchased directly, without UPCs?

  54. Edward Yacknin says:

    I’m in Phoenix, Arizona. Need a couple of shirts before I head up to Chicago for the World Series homestand. Like everyone else who has written… what can we do to get these shirts. Thanks

  55. Heidi Erwood says:

    I’ll be at my local Meijer store first thing tomorrow to find out they are one of the “select” stores that carry Love Me Tenders. If they aren’t, can I still purchase a few shirts?

    Go Cubbies!!

  56. mike says:

    I am in Iowa and a loyal cubs fan, is there any way to get your shirt here?? Need to find a way to get a 2xl shirt and support the cubs and the Iowa cubs as well!!!!

  57. Sally says:

    No Love Me Tenders in Indianapolis. Would love to buy shirts for family here & in L.A.
    GO CUBS !!!

  58. Giselle says:

    What are these “Love Me Tender” s ?

  59. Eric says:

    Screw it…I’m flying to Chicago for chicken and UPC’s. I’ll eat four bags at Murphy’s with a few ice cold Old Styles. Everyone send me your money! lol!

    Fukudometer…260 and rising!!

    Eric in Houston

  60. Ali says:

    Anyone in the Midwest willing to send me a UPC label from this chicken, I will send you a free pair of fabulous earrings from my website!
    Get in touch with me:

  61. Justin says:

    Cub fan in Arkansas. No Love Me Tenders in my area, either. I want a shirt. I’ll pay reasonably and I’ll buy some chicken, as well. C’mon, be fair…. PWEASE!!!!

  62. Linda Mayberry says:

    I also live outside your distribution area but would love to purchase some shirts. I’d buy your chicken if it was available. Go Cubs!!!

  63. Brad says:

    Add me to the list of people that would love to get one, but live in an area where your products are not available (in my case, Auburn, Ala.). Please help me figure out how to get or buy a t-shirt.

  64. Anthony says:

    I would also love to get one. Unfortunately I live in New Mexico. Please help me figure out how to get one. Thanks! GO CUBS GO!!!

  65. Jeff says:

    I live in Akron, OH, and also really want a shirt. Am totally willing to buy the chicken as well. Please help. Also, make shirts in larger sizes for us husky boys please (XXL or even XXXL). LET’S GO CUBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. Jared says:

    OK, here is the scoop. I am a grad student in Davenport, Iowa, and have just driven across the river to Illinois and found Love Me Tenders at my very first grocery stop. The total cost for 4 bags of the things (which weren’t as bad as I thought they were going to be, if you can get over the 300+ calories per rec. serving) was around $40.00. I know that there are many eager Cubs fans out there that are just itching to get their hands on one of these shirts. I will either be putting one online via ebay, or accepting offers via email, or heck, maybe both. If anyone is interested please let me know, and maybe we can work something out. My email is Well, back to the game. Go Cubs!

  67. Bruce Kreamelmeyer says:

    Big Cub fan here in Savannah, GA, and NO Love Me Tenders! I sure hope I can either get some chicken (not likely, I guess), or one of those cool T-shirts. I’m a die-hard Cub fan for over 50 years… please help an old guy out!!!

  68. Please, let us Cubs fans know if the T-Shirts will available somehow to us “out-of-towners.” Much like everyone else, I’d love to have one of these bad boys. The slogan is catchy!

  69. Sam says:

    I’ll send money in for four boxes or LMT. You send a shirt and the chicken to Oklahoma. Does that sound like a plan?

  70. How can we get one of these shirts down here in South Florida? I need one to add to my Cubs shirt collection. Right next to my Division Champs 2008 shirt! 🙂 GO CUBS GO

  71. Micah Robinson says:

    I am dying to get the shirt!
    The Cubs play tonight and I’m losing my mind here.

    What cna we do?
    I will pay $200!

  72. Ok. So the Cubies are out of it…..I still want my shirt. Just put it on the website already.

  73. Diana says:

    Have you checked Ebay? I think I saw some on there.

  74. Marc says:

    Anybody still want a shirt? I live in Indiana and can arrange for you to get one via the t-shirt form and a fee. Just let me know.

  75. Pablo says:

    Marc, I would be interested. How do we get in touch?

  76. Roger says:

    TX has Great BBQ but no Love me Tenders! I need a shirt! What’s the latest?

  77. scott in chicago says:

    I’d love to get a shirt if they still exist!
