Jordan and Taylor became friends after meeting on a reality cooking show. They have recently decided to start an Internet business to sell their delicious chocolate brownies. Their knowledge of business, unlike their totally awesome culinary skills, is questionable. Knowing that you are accounting students, they will be asking you advice now and then.

You received a text that Jordan and Taylor were on their way. When they arrived, you could smell the aroma of fresh baked brownies. You are glad that you purchased a gallon of milk earlier in the day. Jordan hands you a list of ingredients for their special recipe. Meanwhile, Taylor is concerned that more than just their labor and ingredients should be taken into consideration to properly gauge a selling price.

An Internet gourmet foods company, “Yumminess”, will be including “Chocolate Attack Brownies” (CAB) in their online catalog. CAB will be sold in square tins and captioned with personal greetings. Jordan negotiated a selling price to Yumminess at $10 per tin.

The product cost is $8 per tin, which includes $6 of direct material and $1.50 of direct labor. Annual manufacturing overhead is estimated at $100,000 for the expected sales of 200,000 tins. Operating expenses are projected to be a fixed annual amount of $80,000.

2. If 200,000 tins are sold, was is the total Gross Profit? (3 points)

Your income statement should include a heading and amounts for sales, cost of goods sold, gross profit, operating expenses, and net income. All amounts need to have the correct captions. Make sure you properly account for any over- or under-applied manufacturing overhead. (6 points)
