LOWER GREENVILLE—In honor of Elvis' birthday on January 8, Carnival Barker's Ice Cream will offer cups and pints of their elusive Fat Elvis flavor. As the ice cream gurus note on their Facebook page, it's the first time in months they'll offer this particular flavor, which contains peanut butter, bananas and candied bacon. [Eaterwire]
