The introduction of "International Pancakes" to the brand's Spring Menu is part of the brand's 60th anniversary celebration and a nod to its iconic name – The International House of Pancakes – which was shortened to "IHOP" in 1973. The International Pancake line-up highlights local flavors found around the world, with new flavors being introduced throughout 2018. The first three pancakes to be revealed include:
"For IHOP's milestone 60th year, we wanted to celebrate the diversity of flavors and culinary traditions from around the world, and put our own signature twist on them, doing what we do best – PANCAKES!" said Chef Nevielle Panthaky, Vice President of Culinary at IHOP. "Our new International Pancake line-up champions regionally-driven tastes and iconic ingredients, like the luscious Mexican Tres Leches Pancakes with notes of sweet vanilla and caramel; the Rich Belgian Dark Chocolate Pancakes with layers of dark chocolate mousse and rich chocolate pieces; and the sweet, salty and crunchy English Sticky Toffee Pancakes. This line-up truly is all about Pancakes, Pancakes, Pancakes!"
Also added to the IHOP Spring Menu, which is in restaurants today, is the newly-created category IHOP Creations. Reflecting some of today's biggest food trends and delivering great tasting breakfast-inspired delicacies all day long, the new menu features IHOP Signature Pancake Sliders, two silver dollar sliders made with Original Buttermilk Pancakes and filled with a scrambled egg omelette (made with a splash of Buttermilk & wheat pancake batter), turkey sausage, hickory smoked bacon and American cheese all topped with sweet maple glaze. Additional IHOP Creations include the Ultimate Waffle Stack, Buttermilk Biscuit & Gravy, Homestyle Corned Beef Hash, Southwest Scramble, and the Create Your Own Melt.
For 60 years, IHOP has been bringing guests together with family and friends over made-to-order breakfast foods and more, from distinctive omelettes, to savory hickory-smoked bacon and of course, the brand's world-famous Original Buttermilk Pancakes -- served all day, every day.
The Mexican Tres Leches, Belgian Dark Chocolate and English Sticky Toffee pancakes are available this spring at participating IHOP restaurants nationwide** and can be enjoyed on their own or as part of a breakfast combo with a choice of eggs, bacon, ham, pork sausage links, hash browns and more.
