The Grinch’s tagline may be “It’s never too early to be annoyed by Christmas,” but we all know how that story ends. Your heart doesn’t have to grow three sizes to get excited about IHOP’s new Grinch-inspired menu.
In celebration of the new Dr. Seuss film, the breakfast joint rolled out a special menu October 29, and it’s staying in restaurants through the end of the year. As you might guess, there’s plenty of green involved, plus a new omelette and French toast stack that both sound fit for an indulgent holiday meal.
Here’s what you can expect from the IHOPxGrinch menu:
- Grinch’s Green Pancakes: two Grinch-green buttermilk pancakes topped with sweet cream cheese icing, red candy hearts, and green whipped cream
- Minty Who Hot Chocolate:hot chocolate with mint syrup topped with creamy green whipped cream and red candy hearts
- Who-Roast Beast Omelette: an omelette filled with shredded beef, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese, sautéed jalapeños, onions, and golden hash browns topped with BBQ sauce, more shredded cheese, and a Serrano pepper; it comes with THREE buttermilk pancakes, too
- Whoville Holiday Cheesecake French Toast: two King’s Hawaiian rolls, French-toasted, and layered with creamy cheesecake filling, raspberry topping, and whipped cream
There are special additions to the kids menu, too: A Mt. Crumpit Kids Combo, which comes with a Grinch green buttermilk pancakes topped with cream cheese icing, red candy hearts, and green whipped cream, plus one scrambled egg, one bacon strip, and one sausage link. Also, a Young Grinch Minty Who Hot Chocolate, which is just a kid-sized version of the drink.
Parents, if you bring your kids to IHOP between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. during the promotion, kids 12 and under can get a free entrée from the kids menu with the purchase of any adult entrée!
