Athens Doughnut Rivals Luther Burger

ATHENS, GA -- In the same vein as the Luther Burger and the fried Twinkie, meet the Elvis Doughnut.

The peanut butter-coated confection is topped with bacon and bananas.

"[It's] a perfect marriage of flavors and textures," USA Today Pop Candy reader whistleandthumb wrote after Whitney Matheson featured it in her daily pop culture blog.

Like the Luther Burger, the Elvis Doughnut was invented in Metro Atlanta.

The high-calorie creation can be found at Ike & Jane Cafe and Bakery on Prince Avenue in Athens.

The Luther Burger, a cheesburger made with fried Krispy Kreme doughnuts instead of a traditional bun, was born at the now-closed Mulligan's bar in Decatur.
