IHOP Is The First Major Restaurant Chain To Add Gluten-Friendly Pancakes And Waffles

While there’s been a lot of buzz around eating gluten-free or without gluten at the local restaurant level, not many major chains have incorporated these options into their menus. IHOP, however, just took a big step forward in that regard, adding a permanent lineup of gluten-friendly pancakes and waffles to their repertoire.

The new breakfast items are made with a base of rice flour, sugar, milk, and eggs, and are tailored to have IHOP’s recognizable buttermilk pancake flavor. While IHOP doesn’t call these gluten-free due to potential for cross-contamination in the kitchen, the batter is made with entirely gluten-free ingredients.

With these new gluten-friendly options, IHOP becomes the first major diner chain in the country to have such a dedicated menu. The only other major chain of comparable size and scale with similar options is Chick-fil-A.

Granted, those with Celiac disease will probably want to wait until IHOP dedicates specific griddle space to limit any chances of cross-contamination. For those without the condition that desire gluten-free foods, however, this is an addition that is readily available just about everywhere.

You can get the new pancakes or waffles on their own, or as part of a breakfast combo with eggs, sausage or bacon, and hashbrowns (which are also gluten-friendly). There’s also a menu of six burgers with gluten-friendly buns available for lunch or dinner.

IHOP Just Dropped A Limited Edition Line Of Pancake PJs

IHOP has officially jumped into the world of apparel with their new Pancakewear Collection. This set of “pancake PJs” isn’t just for show, though, as the chain is selling them off for a worthy cause.

IHOP’s Pancakewear Collection is part of their 60 Days of Giving initiative, which both celebrates the pancake purveyor’s 60th year in business and gives money to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. As such, half of the proceeds of every purchase of the limited-edition clothing will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network.

You can buy IHOP’s assortment of pancake PJs on the eBay charity site, where pants, onesies, and socks with a breakfast theme are available in varying sizes. The onesies cost $85 for adult sizes and $50 for child sizes, the lounge pants are $39 for adult sizes and $29 for child sizes, and the socks are posted at a sale price of $15 per pair. All items will be ready to ship on or before March 26, according to the eBay postings, and will be available until they are sold out.

IHOP is hoping that the Pancakewear collection will get them closer to their target of $5 million raised for children’s charities. If you want to help and aren’t interested in the loungewear, you can still contribute by bringing a check donation to any IHOP restaurant by March 31.

IHOP Is Doing All-You-Can-Eat Pancakes At Its CHEAPEST PRICE EVER

Alongside drunken tomfoolery, disco balls dropping, and fireworks, a sure sign that the new year is here is the return of IHOP’s all-you-can-eat pancakes deal. This time around, the pancake purveyor is dropping its gluttonous deal at the cheapest it has ever been.

While it typically prices at around $4.99-$5.49, IHOP is lowering their all-you-can-eat cost to just $3.99 per person for 2018. You start off with either a full stack of five flapjacks or a combo of two pancakes, eggs, hash browns, and your choice of ham, sausage, or bacon. The combo’s price varies by location. Afterwards, you’ll get unlimited short stacks of two hotcakes apiece until you’re stuffed at no extra charge.

This marks the perfect opportunity to flip the bird at all New Year’s resolutions and attempt to be a pancake-eating champ. Sean Fahmy broke an IHOP record a couple of years back while taking advantage of the deal, if you’re looking for a number to beat. Even if you’re not into challenges, though, this deal still gets you a ton of food for an insanely cheap price.

IHOP’s all-you-can-eat pancakes deal is only good through February 11th at participating locations.

A reason why the price may be so low this year is that this year is IHOP’s 60th anniversary. A press release notes that the deal will “kick off its year-long milestone celebration,” so we can likely expect more gluttonous bargains to come as 2018 progresses.

IHOP Launches Latte-Inspired Pancakes In Time For National Pancake Day

With National Pancake Day upon us, IHOP is going all in with a lineup of new latte-inspired pancakes.

The pancake purveyors just unleashed four different flavors of Latte Lover’s Pancakes, all based off of popular flavors of the classic beverage. Of course, given the current season, a Pumpkin Spice pancake is available. There’s also Salted Caramel Java, Double Vanilla (with a scoop of ice cream), and Espresso Mocha Cream.

With the exception of the Pumpkin Spice pancakes, every single flavor features buttermilk pancakes as the base. Sadly, this means that the actual flapjacks themselves don’t have any caffeine jolts inside of them. But some of the toppings, like a coffee bean butter for the Salted Caramel Java or chocolate-covered espresso beans for the Espresso Mocha Cream, do contain that caffeine spike you want to kick start the morning with.

The latte-inspired pancakes will only be around until November 12th. If you’re down to get buzzed from both your morning coffee and breakfast, you’ll have until then to cop the new pancake flavors.
