Portland ice cream shop celebrates Elvis' 78th birthday

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Today would have been the King of Rock n' Roll's 78th birthday, and a Portland ice cream shop is paying tribute to Elvis Presley in its own special way.

Salt & Straw is dishing out "The Elvis" this month.

You may recall one of the singer's favorite treats was a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich.

The Elvis is malted banana ice cream with Marionberry jam from Oregon Hill Farms and creamy peanut butter.

"Hopefully, in each scoop, you get a bite of peanut butter and jelly in each," said Salt & Straw ice cream maker James Foster.

The folks at Salt & Straw can even turn The Elvis into a sundae for you by using sweet rolls from An Xuyen Bakery, candied bacon and whipped cream.

Salt & Straw has two locations, one on Northeast Alberta Street and another on Northwest 23rd Avenue.
