Mojo Nixon was so right

When he said,

“Elvis is everywhere! He’s in everything!
…He’s in your cheeseburgers!
…He’s in Nutty Buddys!”

And now, apparently, He shall be in your Reeses’ Cups.

Hershey to Honor Elvis With Banana Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

Tuesday, December 05, 2006

Love me slender: Candy fans are all shook up over plans by Hershey to sell a peanut butter and banana crème version of its Reese’s cup to honor The King.

The King, as in Elvis Presley

Elvis’ favorite sandwich was fried peanut butter and banana – sometimes with honey or slices of bacon added.

So in July, to mark the 30th anniversary of the rock legend’s death, Hershey will introduce a limited edition of its chocolate cup featuring a layer of peanut butter and a layer of banana crème.

Heartburn hotel, you say? Perhaps, but Hershey insists that retailers are very excited about it.

“It brings The King’s favorite taste of peanut butter and banana to life, and it’s a fantastic way to bring two American icons together,” said spokeswoman Stephanie Moritz.

The Reese’s Elvis Cup, first reported by Advertising Age, will have a picture of a young, thin Presley on the package. It will hit store shelves in time for Elvis Week in Memphis, to be held from Aug. 11 to 19.

Lifting up a tab on the wrapper will give buyers a chance to win a trip for two to Graceland, the Presley mansion in Memphis.

I’m buying a crate or two at Costco, sumbitch!! Loupy and I can use them for Communion services in our Church!

Priestess: “Take this peanutbuttern’nanners and eat it. Y’all do this in memory of me.”

Response: “Thanks be to E.”

Go in peace, to love and serve the Lord.
