Re: “Banana Nightlife,” Food column by Dale Curry. September 2010 issue.

In the food section “Banana Nightlife,” Dale Curry made a statement: “Elvis Presley invented a banana entrée: banana and peanut butter sandwiches.”

I would like to take exception to that. In the 1930s my mother made banana and peanut butter sandwiches for me and my sister in New Orleans. I believe that was before Elvis was born.

We never ate peanut butter sandwiches with jelly or jam – only with bananas.

Reply: Elvis also got credit for “Hound Dog” although Carl Perkins sang it first. For both the song and the sandwich it is fair to say that Elvis popularized them although he created neither. We agree with your point though, ditch the jelly and bring on the bananas.
