IHOP brought back its now annual All You Can Eat pancake promotion — just in time to sideline some weight-loss resolutions (ours included).
Under the promotion, you choose either a stack of five of the chain's signature buttermilk pancakes or a short stack of two pancakes with a combo plate of eggs, hash browns, and choice of breakfast meats. After you polish off the pancakes, you can keep getting two more until you've had your fill — however many it takes. Don't worry IF you didn't want to fall for this temptation, the promo ends today, Feb 8.
Grenville and I managed to get in on it (just in time) this past Friday.
HOW many pancakes did we collectively down?
Too many. Our total fell short of the 15 pancakes our server told us that a college student had recently downed. Between us, we managed to consume 13 pancakes, which served as breakfast and lunch. Not the healthiest of choices, we know, but it's only once a year (thankfully) and the first time we visited an IHOP in over 5 months, so no excuses needed (or made).
They tasted g-o-o-d and admittedly we were gluttons for this visit.
IF you missed this event and would like to get in on a free pancake offer, you're in luck as there's another IHOP tradition coming up on Tuesday, March 3, for National Pancake Day. During this one-day event, over 1,500 IHOP restaurants country-wide will invite folks to enjoy a complimentary stack of their signature buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. It's also the company's largest annual philanthropic event.
While the pancakes are free, pancake eaters will be
invited encouraged to make a voluntary suggested contribution of $5 to their local Children's Miracle Hospital.
Those who make a donation in this amount receive a coupon for a $5 discount on a future IHOP visit.
So, not only will the pancakes be free, but funds raised will go to a good cause too.
