IHOP has announced that an iconic menu item is returning for the 15th year running.
The pancake shop joins the list of restaurants early adopting fall-inspired flavors.
Pumpkin spiced pancakes and drinks will be available starting August 28, reports FSR magazine.
Guests can order the pumpkin and spice pancake combo, which consists of two pancakes made with real pumpkin and seasonal spices, topped with whipped cream, and served with two strips of bacon or sausage, two eggs, and hash browns.
Since its inception in 2008, IHOP has sold an average of over 1 million pancakes each year.
Also available is the pumpkin spice cold foam cold brew.
IHOP’s iconic cold brew coffee is sweetened with vanilla and topped with a creamy pumpkin spice cold foam.
The restaurant has yet to confirm if the fan-favorite Scary Face pancakes are making a return as well.
The spooky fall menu item puts a spooky spin on IHOP’s classic Happy Face pancakes.
Scary Face pancakes are usually topped with a whipped cream face topped with candy corn teeth in a scary facial expression.
The US Sun reached out to IHOP for more information on the fall menu updates.
