This is how I want to be remembered 30 years after my death

Elvis Reeses cup

Next August is the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, and there's going to be a hunka hunka big pile of observances, remembrances, parties, festivals, and god know what all.

One sign of the excess we can expect is this... according to AdAge, Hershey Co. will roll out a peanut butter and banana flavored version of Reese's cups, a homage to the King's fondness for fried peanut-butter and banana sandwiches.

Elvis also continues to be the King when it comes to posthumous moneymaking, bringing in more than $45 million last years in music sales and all sorts of wacky endorsements. (My favorite, the Elvis Presley "Taking Care of Business" Smith & Wesson revolver).
