Denny’s Hops on the Pumpkin Train with Pumpkin Pancakes and Pumpkin Coffee


If you aren’t sick of pumpkin-flavored products yet, Denny’s might finally drive you off a cliff with their annual offering of Pumpkin Pancakes. You can get a plate with two Pumpkin Pancakes, two eggs, hash browns and your choice of two bacon strips or two sausage links. Joining the Pumpkin Pancakes starting this month are a new Pumpkin Coffee, the new Red Velvet Milkshake, the Build-Your-Own Holiday Slam, Holiday Turkey & Dressing Dinner, and Red Velvet Pancake Puppies.

It’s not even November, but we’ve already seen Pumpkin-flavored biscuits from KFC Japan, Pumpkin Spice Oreos and even Chocolate-covered Pumpkin Twinkies. With all the pumpkin filling up our plates, maybe these pancakes aren’t the most obnoxious of the bunch. And since Americans consume 5 pounds of pumpkin a year, why not let some of that come from a fluffy pancake, accompanied by a side of bacon?
