“Shortly after our test kitchen chefs first began playing with the idea of Cereal Pancakes, we served them to our guests in focus groups and one of the main things they told us was that it made them feel nostalgic for those Saturday mornings watching cartoons and eating cereal when they were kids,” said Brad Haley, chief marketing officer at IHOP, in a press release. “So, while some may see our new Cereal Pancakes menu as the antidote to the ‘adulting’ phenomenon that many grown-ups complain of today, we see them simply as the delicious combination of two of America’s favorite breakfast foods that we didn’t know we needed. What’s also cool is that they are just as fun to look at as they are to eat … or drink in the case of our new Cereal Milkshakes.”

If these pancakes sound perfect for your children, be sure to eat between the hours of 4 and 10 p.m. as IHOP has brought back its Kids Eat Free deal now through April 12 for kids 12 and under with the purchase of one adult entrée.
