IHOP Not Waffling on Its Support of International Waffle Day
- March, 24 2011
On March 25th IHOP's award-winning buttermilk pancakes share the spotlight in a special way for the "king of crispness," "the golden-brown wonder," the always delicious and never square, IHOP Belgian Waffle. Waffle irons across more than 1,500 IHOPs are primed as IHOP showcases mouth-watering waffle combinations in celebration of International Waffle Day on Friday, March 25th.
With its origin dating back to the Middle Ages, and later being served by street vendors to hungry passersby, delicious waffles have long been a favorite food around the world and perfect for any time of day. IHOP invites guests to join in the fun by customizing their waffle with one of three delicious fruit toppings, including strawberry, blueberry or cinnamon apple compote.
"International Waffle Day is a fun and exciting opportunity to showcase that IHOP can turn a waffle iron with the same expertise we flip pancakes," said Jean Birch, IHOP president. "Whether your tastes tend toward sweet or savory, IHOP provides a variety of waffle combinations that will satisfy any craving."
International Waffle Day first originated in Sweden and coincides with the arrival of spring. Today, waffle lovers can enjoy several delicious ways to celebrate at IHOP:
