IHOP Launches Limited-Edition Pancakes That Combine Two Breakfast Foods in One


IHOP is combining your two favorite breakfast foods into one to give you the boldest innovation of 2020 – cereal pancakes.

The chain announced it’s adding a trio of pancakes inspired by nostalgic classics such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cap’n Crunch Berries, and Fruity Lucky Charms to its menus for a limited-time.

"Shortly after our test kitchen chefs first began playing with the idea of Cereal Pancakes, we served them to our guests in focus groups and one of the main things they told us was that it made them feel nostalgic for those Saturday mornings watching cartoons and eating cereal when they were kids," IHOP's Chief Marketing Officer Brad Haley said in a press release.

He added: "So, while some may see our new Cereal Pancakes menu as the antidote to the ‘adulting' phenomenon that many grown-ups complain of today, we see them simply as the delicious combination of two of America's favorite breakfast foods that we didn't know we needed."

Not only do the pancakes taste delicious, but they're also very Instagrammable with colorful toppings and additions.

The Cinnamon Toast Crunch pancakes are described as “two buttermilk pancakes topped with cinnamon spread, Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, cream cheese icing, a crown of whipped topping, and cinnamon sugar.”

The Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries feature “two buttermilk pancakes topped with cereal milk mousse, blue vanilla sparkle sauce, Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries cereal, and a crown of whipped topping.”

And finally, The Fruity Lucky Charms come with “two buttermilk pancakes topped with cereal milk mousse, vanilla sauce, Fruity Lucky Charms cereal, and a crown of sweet purple whipped icing.”

The deliciously sweet breakfast treat will only be available through April 12, so get 'em while they're hot.

If that’s not enough sweetness for you, give your tastebuds a little jolt with three corresponding cereal-filled milkshakes swirled to perfection to match each pancake offering.
