From Oreo cookies dipped in orange juice to flaming hot Cheetos with milk, the internet has provided the world with some strange food combinations. However, long before Twitter gave us weird food, celebrities had strange eating habits. These are the most bizarre celebrity eating habits of all time!
Elvis Presley, better known as the "King of Rock n' Roll," remains one of the most significant cultural icons ever. However, Presley revolutionized much more than music – he also changed sandwiches forever! Believe it or not, Presley's favorite meal was a "Fool's Gold sandwich." What's that, you ask? Well, a Fool's Gold is a long baguette filled with grape jelly, peanut butter, and bacon. Not only that, but they also weighed around 4 pounds!
The sandwich was born in a small dinner in Colorado. In order to eat it, the King had his staff regularly fly from Memphis to Denver for an order. The flights cost around $300 today, which is a lot to pay for a sandwich. Over time, Presley made his own version, which replaced the jelly with bananas!
Almost everyone knows the greatest trumpeter of all time, Louis Armstrong. He also worked as an actor, composer, and vocalist, which explains why, over 50 years after his death, Armstrong remains a massively influential figure in music. Sadly, the jazz musician was not always a star.
While growing up, Armstrong's mother often gave them laxatives with their meals, as they could only afford slightly rotten food. Unfortunately, over the years, Armstrong's body became accustomed to the laxatives. So, for the rest of his life, he regularly added laxatives to his meals.
Artist Salvador Dalí remains best known for the bizarre imagery of his surrealist paintings and artwork. His 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory is perhaps his best-known work, often referred to only as "Melting Clocks." While most still know Dalí best as a painter, over his career, he dabbled in just about every medium available to him, including sculpture, photography, film, and writing.
For one of his books, Dalí and his wife came out with a cookbook that revealed the recipes of some of their favorite odd dishes. Incredibly, the book included instructions for "toffee with pine cones" and "frog pasties." Yes, those are precisely what they sound like...
There's nothing that George Washington could do to change his place in history as the first president of the United States. However, many don't know that he had many strange eating habits. For instance, Washington had an eating habit of large amounts of nuts, specifically walnuts, which led him to his famous dentures.
After getting dentures, Washington turned to one of the most expensive desserts of the time: Ice cream. That's right! It wasn't just hard to get either; it was hard to store. Washington spent over $200 to obtain a frozen confection to keep his favorite dessert. That's nearly $5,000 today!
