As Halloween approaches, be very afraid—and also a little hungry—because participating IHOP® restaurants across the country are bringing back one of their most beloved traditions for kids: the “Scary Face” pancake joins the “Just For Kids” menu, beginning October 1 and lasting throughout the month.

And as a special Halloween treat, on October 31, participating IHOP restaurants will offer kids 12 and under a “Scary Face” pancake free—and that’s no trick! Kids 12 and under can order a “Scary Face” pancake and be able to make it into as scary—or funny—a face as they want. The Scary Face pancake comes with one of IHOP restaurant’s world famous buttermilk pancakes, a whipped topping mouth, a glazed strawberry nose and a set of delicious decorations: two mini-Oreo® cookies to create eyes and eight pieces of candy corn to add teeth or fangs… Let your imagination run wild! And kids over 12—and grownups—will get a treat too, when the most popular seasonal favorite, pumpkin pancakes return to the menu at participating IHOP restaurants. “We’re excited to bring back one of our most requested holiday promotions, the ‘Scary Face’ pancake—and even more excited to celebrate Halloween with our guests 12 and under by giving them a free ‘Scary Face’ pancake when they visit us on October 31,” said Natalia Franco, Vice President, Marketing, International House of Pancakes, LLC. “Whether we’re your first stop on Halloween to fortify your kids for a day of costume parades and trick or treating or your kids want to end the day by celebrating with a ‘Scary Face’ dinner, you’ll want to spend at least part of the day at your local IHOP restaurant,” said Franco. “The place that brings you ‘Everything You Love About Breakfast℠’ is happy to bring you ‘Everything you love about Halloween!’”
