IHOP is making cereal pancakes a reality
Lucky Charms pancakes people, this is not a drill!
Why choose between cereal and pancakes when you can have both? And we don’t mean a two-course breakfast (which is also pretty great). No, we're talking about a mind-bending cereal-pancake hybrid.
This totally delicious mashup is now a thing and you can get it at IHOP. Everyone’s fave pancake house has just launched *Cereal Pancakes*, featuring the nostalgic likes of Toast Crunch, Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries and Fruity Lucky Charms.
The colorful concoctions are the perfect blend of fluffy buttermilk pancake and crunchy sweet cereal. They’re on sale at restaurants now — but only through April 12, so get down to your local IHOP… uh, ASAP.
And as if that weren’t enough, the new limited-time menu also includes cereal milkshakes.
“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,” said Brad Haley, Chief Marketing Officer at IHOP. “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. What’s also cool is that they are just as fun to look at as they are to eat … or drink in the case of our new Cereal Milkshakes.”
