IHOP Has Us Seeing Green With New Grinch-Inspired Holiday Pancakes

IHOP is getting into the Christmas spirit this holiday season, rolling out new Grinch-themed pancakes.

The breakfast chain has teamed up with Illumination Entertainment and Universal Studios to offer a limited-time, holiday-themed menu in honor of the new movie Dr. Seuss' The Grinch, which premieres in theaters on Nov. 9.

"The holidays are such a special time for families and creating a delicious menu that reflects the fun and whimsy of Whoville in Dr. Seuss' beloved story about the Grinch is the perfect way for us at IHOP to celebrate the season," said Alisa Gmelich, Vice President, Marketing at IHOP. "We couldn't think of a better partner than Illumination and Universal Pictures -- their new animated feature Dr. Seuss' The Grinch is sure to be truly entertaining for all ages."

First on the holiday offerings, available now through Dec. 31, is the fluffy Grinch's Green Pancakes – two Grinch green buttermilk pancakes topped with sweet cream cheese icing, red candy hearts, crowned with creamy, green whipped topping.

The Who-Roast Beast Omelette, also new to the menu, is filled with shredded beef, Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses, sautéed jalapeños, onions and golden hash browns topped and features a host of toppings.

Perfect for every Who in Whoville with a sweet tooth, theWhoville Holiday Cheesecake French Toast boasts King's Hawaiian® rolls, French-toasted and layered with creamy cheesecake filling, raspberry topping and creamy whipped topping.

Guests can wash down their meal with the Minty Who Hot Chocolate, which features mint syrup topped with creamy green whipped topping and red candy hearts.

The breakfast chain is also introducing a new kids menu, which includes the Mt. Crumpit Kids Combo — one Grinch Green pancake, one scrambled egg, one bacon strip and one pork sausage link — and the Young Grinch Minty Who Hot Chocolate, a hot chocolate with mint syrup and topped with creamy green whipped topping and red candy hearts.


Keeping with IHOP tradition, little ones 12 and under dining at the restaurant from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. eat free.

For those not yet ready to welcome in the Christmas cheer, the spirit of Halloween still lingers at IHOP. Guests dining at the restaurant can still sink their teeth into Pumpkin Spice and Cinn-A-Stack pancakes. They can also sip on IHOP's new pumpkin pancake beer, though the ale is only available at bars and festivals.
