One of Elvis’s favorite sandwiches was the 8,000 calorie Fool’s Gold Loaf.
On the evening of February 1st, 1976 Elvis and his buddies were in Memphis talking about this sandwich they loved from a restaurant called the Colorado Mine Company in Denver. Right there and then Elvis decided “we’re going”, had his jet readied, and the group flew from Memphis to Denver on a midnight run for sandwiches.
The sandwich is called the Fool’s Gold Loaf, it’s 8,000 calories, and if you would like to make your own you will need:
- 1 hollowed-out loaf of French bread
- 1 entire jar of smooth peanut butter
- 1 entire jar of grape jelly
- 1 pound of bacon
Elvis purchased 22 Fool’s Gold sandwiches for himself and his buddies, and the husband & wife owners of the Colorado Mine Company met them at the airport hanger with the sandwiches as well as Perrier and champagne.
