IHOP’s ‘Scary Face’ Pancakes and Pumpkin Pancakes Return


The “Scary Face” pancakes at IHOP are back!  The adorable (and admittedly un-scary) buttermilk pancake has a whipped topping mouth, a glazed strawberry nose, two mini-Oreos for eyes, and eight pieces of candy corn for teeth.  They’ll be around through Halloween, though little ones under twelve can get one for free on Halloween day, just like last year.


While we kind of think it would be more fitting to have the pancake base for “Scary Face” be a pumpkin pancake, which are also back this fall, we’re so swept up in how cute they are that we don’t mind.  Plus candy corn for breakfast? Yes. Please.
