Elvis Presley’s Fatty Food Fad – Fried PBB Sandwiches
To say that the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll had a waistline to prove his love for fatty foods would not be an exaggeration. Back in 1958, when Presley was still trim, he was still famous for his legendary eating habits, which eventually caught up with his physical appearance.
One of his weaknesses on the dinner table used to be the fried peanut butter and banana (PBB) sandwiches, which he also called “peanut butter and ‘nanner sandwiches.’ As mentioned in the cookbook of his favorite recipes, “Are You Hungry Tonight?”, the sandwich is made with two slices of white bread with peanut butter and sliced banana, all of which is fried in butter.
In fact, experts claim that butter, being a frequent part of his diet, contributed to his weight gain before he died an untimely death in 1977 at the age of 42. According to one write-up, “Elvis had long been gobbling drugs and fatty foods. But his romance with saturated fat reached a sort of point-of-no-return 18 months before the end, on a chilly night that started at Graceland, his estate in Memphis, Tennessee.”
