The stories that have attached themselves to the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, are many, and often outlandish. Presley wasn't just one of the most famous American singers in history, it's said that he fired a bullet into his television set, showed up to the White House unannounced to meet President Richard Nixon, and frequently ate a giant sandwich all to himself.

If you dig a little deeper, it may come as a surprise to you that this fabled peanut butter, jelly, and bacon sandwich originated in Colorado.

Elvis Presley's Favorite Sandwich Originated in Colorado

A now-defunct restaurant named the Colorado Mine Company was owned and operated by owners Cindy and Buck Scott and featured a gigantic sandwich called 'Fool's Gold Loaf' on the menu.

Legend says that Elvis Presley caught wind of the massive menu item and became such a fan that he flew from his home in Graceland to Colorado in order to pick up a whopping 22 sandwiches.

This story is especially remarkable considering the novelty sandwich's recipe. The Fool's Gold Loaf consisted of an entire loaf of French bread that was hollowed out and warmed in an oven.

The loaf was then filled with an entire pound of fried bacon, a jar of peanut butter, and a jar of jelly.

While the restaurant is no longer in business, the legend of Elvis Presley's appetite for the massive sandwich remains a thing of legendary proportions.
