I always wondered if he liked Hostess Twinkies, CupCakes, Suzy Q's, Hohos, Ding Dongs or Donettes ...

He liked snacky foods just like everyone else but sometimes he'd get hook on a particular food and eat it constantly - for awhile it was green popsicles,(they had to be the green ones!!!) another time Pound cake with a can of peaches poured over the top, he liked ice cream alot. He called it Iddy Cream I don't remember ever seeing hostess cakes or similar things in the house though.

Lately I have been devouring Klondike Bars -- I'll bet Elvis would have loved them:

DJC, I'm with you on the Klondikes. I just went through a box of the Reese's ones and a box of the Heath Bars ones. I think they're not putting enough bars in there.

Actually, not true.

In at least one biography you'll read about how girlfriend Linda Thompson learned all kinds of special words, including "iddy tream."

They were from his childhood, and sometimes he and Linda would converse exclusively in this language.

Some examples:

Milk = "butch"
Water = "duckling"
Pepsi = "bellywash"
Banana pudding = "naner pudding"
Beautiful things = "pretties"
Tiny feet = "sooties"

"scooters" were bugs
"chicky skin" were goosebumps

A new owner-operated cupcake shop opened a few months ago. I suggested to the owner she should make a cupcake Elvis would've liked...banana cake with peanut butter icing! She created her own recipe and sells them daily. They are great! She says they are also very popular sellers. Her sign for them calls them "Funky Monkey".
