The Fool's Gold Sandwich
What It Is...
Fool's Gold Loaf is a twist on the classic PB&J that was first made at the
Colorado Mine Company restaurant in Denver, Colorado. It consists of a single,
hollowed-out loaf of bread coated with a jar of peanut butter, a jar of jam, and
a pound of bacon.
Why It's Famous...
Fool's Gold gained notoriety through its connection with Elvis Presley and
his well-publicized love of food. Legend has it that one night in 1976, Elvis
and his entourage boarded his private jet and flew from Memphis to Denver on a
quest for Fool's Gold. Upon landing, they were met
on the tarmac with 22 of the sweet and salty sandwiches. Reportedly, it was Chef
Nick Andurlakis who hand-delivered the sandwiches that night - then going on to
open -Nick's Cafe, where Elvis' favorite can still be found on the menu.
Fool's Gold in WHAT IF...
It's no secret that food brings people together. In -WHAT IF, Wallace
(Radcliffe) and Chantry (Kazan) instantly bond over their fascination with the
legend of Fool's Gold, exchanging in witty, playful banter that becomes a staple
of their friendship. What starts as a fun inside joke between two friends soon
becomes a -token of something more as they are forced to realize the undeniable
chemistry they share.
