According to David Adlerโ€™s book The Life and Cuisine of Elvis Presley, eating the sandwich was something of a ritual for Elvis: โ€œElvis enjoyed eating picnic style. However, he fastidiously used a knife and fork to eat his peanut butter and banana sandwiches.โ€ Probably not a bad call: itโ€™s one of the messier sandwiches youโ€™ll find.
