IHOP’s free flapjack day is no joke, they have been raising millions on National Pancake Day for kids. This year the newly crowned Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler has decided to don an IHOP apron and spatula with her crown and hopes to raise over $2.7 million for children’s hospitals on February 28th from 7 am to 10pm. Guests to IHOP on that day are given free pancakes and asked to donate to local children’s charity or the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in return.
Also news, IHOP launched a new menu item with their Hash Brown Stacks. The stack is basically layered dish with their crispy fried hash brown on the bottom and various stacked toppings. Spinach and mushroom, ham and swiss, bacon and cheddar, you get the picture. The stacks vary from 570 to 730 calories and run $6.99 to $7.99 here on Maui. When I asked where they sourced their potatoes and veggies IHOP said those were trade secrets for them, but full nutritional info is available at at http://www.ihop.com/docs/nutritionalinformation.pdf
