Move over protein pancakes. You had your chance. IHOP’s Cereal Pancakes are here and before we’re forced to go into quarantine, we’re going to enjoy a stack of these sweet hotcakes before they disappear on April 12. Maybe along with these cereal milk ice cream popsicles.
Take your pick from Cinnamon Toast Crunch Pancakes, Crunch Berries Pancakes, and, of course, Fruity Lucky Charms Pancakes just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. What did you think was at the end of the rainbow? Gold?
Each breakfast option includes two buttermilk pancakes, the cereal of your choice, whipped cream, and a sweet topping, like the blue vanilla sparkle sauce. Which obviously comes from blue unicorns.
IHOP’s Cereal Pancake Selections
- Cinnamon Toast Crunch Pancakes
Two buttermilk pancakes, cinnamon spread, Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, cream cheese icing, whipped cream, and cinnamon sugar.
- Fruity Lucky Charms Pancakes
Two buttermilk pancakes with cereal milk mousse, vanilla sauce, Fruity Lucky Charms cereal, and a “crown of sweet purple whipped icing.” Flower crowns were so 2015.
- Crunch Berries Pancakes
Two buttermilk pancakes with cereal milk mousse, blue vanilla sparkle sauce, Crunch Berries cereal, and whipped cream.
But lest you think the cereal pancakes are where this sugar train stops, you are sorely mistaken. There are also cereal milkshakes afoot. After, all, now is not the time for moderation, my friend. These, after all, are the days your neighbors are hoarding toilet paper and hand sanitizer.
The Cinnamon Toast Crunch Milkshake includes vanilla ice cream blended with Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, whipped cream. The milkshake is topped with more cereal and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. The Crunch Berries Milkshake is made with vanilla ice cream blended with Cap’n Crunch Crunch Berries cereal and blue vanilla sparkle sauce. It’s finished with whipped cream, more cereal, and that nostalgic feeling on the roof of your mouth.
I have a toothache just thinking about all of these, but it’s not going to stop me from trying every single one of these delicious treats.
Because pancakes may be billed as a breakfast food, but we all know we’re going to be rolling into IHOP for these cereal pancakes after last call. And for that, IHOP, we thank you.
