IHOP is serving up new Reese’s Pieces pancakes and a mummy burrito for Halloween
– Did you ever do this when you were younger, where you go, like, you sit there at the table and then our mom talks to you, and you go… – (Laughing) – I’m at IHOP. You probably remember me from eating the entire menu at Cheesecake Factory. I thought it would be a really great idea to do it again, except at IHOP with all their pancakes because… I like to torture myself. – [Producer] Are you done? – I don’t like that one. ♪ I’ve been waiting up all night ♪ ♪ To get this party started, ♪ ♪ party started ♪ ♪ I’ve been waiting up all night ♪ ♪ To get this party started right, right, right, right ♪ – I can never slide in correctly. So, the last time I had a pancake encounter was in college. Me and four of my sorority friends decided to enter a pancake eating contest. I remember we had these huge pancakes, the size of your face. Everyone thought you were going to use your fork and knife. No. My team was straight up, like, “We’re winning.” We started dunking them in the water. That’s a really bad visual. Pancake. Roll. Dunk in water. Shove in face. Basically everyone stopped watching us, and they got disgusted, and started walking away from us. We won. And I won, like, a free pair of shoes. So, I don’t regret it, but I’m not going to do that this time. I’m going to be civilized. We’re trying all of the pancakes today. This one. And while we’re here, we’re also going to try all of the sliders. And all of the crepes, because really a crepe is just a thinner pancake. So why not? Oh… (Fast forwarding noise) Oh, fork and a knife. Wow. These are like my children, my babies. One of the most important thing with pancakes, you gotta make sure that butter to pancake ratio is right where it needs to be. I don’t know why I am cutting all the way down, because I am not going to take a bite this big. Oh my… I could do this and try to fit it in my mouth, but that’s just not appropriate for anyone to watch me do. So, I’m going to do one bite at a time. ♪ You had me at hello ♪ – Okay, very, very fluffy. I think that this is a staple. There’s a reason you have a classic on a menu. The House of Pancakes should be very good at this, and they are. So, it all checks out to me. This one’s going to come home to Momma with me. Can’t believe I like a basic one. I’m usually the one who likes the crazy (beep). So, we’re moving on to bigger and wilder (beep). Filled with cheesecake bites. Also, I really need to work on how I hold a fork and knife. I keep seeing in the videos, the way I hold it… One day I’ll go to an etiquette class. That’s so much strawberry. I probably had a huge strawberry bite in there. That’s what I like. Honestly, though, I think that the original one, I’m more in love with. This thing is just a work of art. So, it’s a vanilla sauce, dulce de leche, and caramel sauce. So, you have three different sauces going on. That’s really pretty. Damn. This one kind of like, wins for looks, I think. I’m going to get so many cavities. It reminds me of Halloween candy, for some reason. I think it’s all the caramel sauce. It’s just like a candy pancake. It’s very, very sweet. I think that you would have one pancake, like, one stack, and you would be really happy with it. This is definitely one that you’re going to share with your whole table. Four luscious pancakes. That’s the actual description on the menu. Look. That’s actually just dark chocolate mousse under the layers. It’s going to be, like, a really classy dessert, I imagine. And really rich. These are my hopes and dreams, that I have. Chocolate syrup. Do I want syrup on it? (Playful music) – It’s oozing chocolate. It reminds me of a German dark chocolate cake, but, that makes sense. (Playful music) – That’s so (beep) good. That is, like, oh my god. Chocolate pancakes with chocolate chips, and then chocolate mousse is such a beautiful combination. Do you see my right eye tearing up as I talk about it? I’m not giving it a good review. I’m giving it such a half-assed review. It’s amazing. It’s like a chocolate cake, but pancakes. We have our Oreo OMG pancakes. It’s a classic buttermilk pancake, and then you have layers of Oreo actual crumbles and then cupcake icing. Also, a child created this pancake. Which I think makes so much sense when you look at it. It’s a limited edition one. Clearly, they did not skimp on the Oreos whatsoever. (Laugh) The cupcake icing is very interesting. It’s extremely sweet, but I have to say that the Oreo is really nice in it, because it’s actually kind of a crispy bite, which I am really into. These are all so beautiful. I’m not going to say that… I don’t know. They’re still my children. I still love them. Just these ones are my favorites, you know? You can have a favorite. Round two. Ooooh. Ooh-wee. Beautiful. I was going to say that this one feels healthier of a round, versus the first round, but that’s just not true. I just see more fruit on the table, so that’s what’s making me think that. Festive rainbow sprinkles, cupcake icing, and more sprinkles. Just based on pure looks, this one is obviously going to be the most popular girl at the table. She’s got the rainbow sprinkles, she’s got all the color, she looks really cute. Every single layer, every single layer, has got that going on. Wow. (Playful music) That’s just sugar. That’s just cupcake. If you ate this entire thing, your dentist would cry. It’s just like what every small child, I imagine, dreams of. As a full-grown human, it’s a little hard, because it’s very sweet. If you are going to IHOP and really want a pancake, but also want to be skinny, those are… That’s not a thing, but if it was, this would be the one you’d go for. These ones look a little bit thinner of a pancake, it’s not the same fluffiness of a buttermilk one. That’s also, it’s not trying to be that. It’s going to be the healthy version of the original, maybe? The difference between this and the cupcake one I just ate, is hilarious. It has a nice crunchiness. It’s very, I would say, middle of the road. Nothing too wild. It’s also, it’s not trying to be wild. It’s true to who it is. Vanilla mouse, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and cardamom. So, this one has a lot of flavors going on. Actually kind of like an elevated cupcake pancake, maybe. It’s an international pancake, because International House of Pancakes? Right? No? Yes. Yes! I must inspect the layers. The first thing that came to my mind was that it tastes like Christmas. It’s really warm and I think it’s the cinnamon and the cloves and everything. It tastes like the holidays, in a pancake. It’s the buttermilk, thick pancakes, with just strawberries and bananas cut on top. So there’s no flavor to the actual pancake itself. But there are nanners in the pancake. There are no strawberries in it, but they do have strawberry syrup. So you can just pour on the strawberry syrup. I think you can never go wrong with strawberry banana. There a really good flavor combo. I really like the banana in it. It’s like, what’s a word to describe banana? I’m like, “It’s banana-y!” You must put the strawberry syrup on. Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘n Fruity. (Sigh) The name itself. You can get this with raspberries or peaches. We did raspberry. I have to say, I love raspberry. I feel like it’s the classier, sexier, hotter strawberry. High expectations. (Upbeat music) If you like raspberry, this one’s amazing. I really do think that this one is the classier version of the strawberry pancake. If that is a thing with pancakes. I didn’t realize there was another pancake. I genuinely thought I was done. (Beep) I’m feeling that sugar overload, but when you were a kid you’d get super excited. But at this point my body doesn’t know what do with it. My body is just like, “Stop.” This is the double blueberry pancake. Double meaning that the blueberry topping, and there’s blueberries on the inside. Because it’s sweet on sweet on sweet, the blueberry syrup, the blueberry… the actual blueberries on top, and then the blueberries in between, it just kind of reads like one note to me. We’ve completed the pancakes. Crepe time. Oh wow. – [Waiter] These are signature pancake sliders. – With a side of hasbrowns. Ooooh. Ummm. I genuinely just blacked out and had a moment where my brain just stopped working, because it’s trying to compute eight different things all at once. Um. I’m just going to start with what’s in front of me and then I’m going to keep going. Oh, what are you? Okay. So, these have a raspberry topping. You can also get them with the peach topping. And there’s a sweet cream filling. Let me see if I can get… Oh! There you go. I’m such a huge fan of raspberry, as you already know. The tartness of it, with all of the sweetness of the cream, I feel like this one has a really nice balance to it. I really like it. Now, the peach. It’s so sweet. – [Producer] Are you done? – I don’t like that one. Okay, we’re moving on. We’re moving on to bigger and better things. These are the Swedish crepes, and what makes this one different is that it’s the lingonberry and lingonberry butter. They kind of look like a little doily. I like this one a lot. It has a sweeter cranberry flavor to it, and I feel like it’s something that my grandma would really like. Strawberries and cream. Strawberries, cream, vanilla cream drizzle… So, it’s going to be kind of like that cheesecake one we had earlier. The strawberry cheesecake one, I’m assuming, but in crepe form. I have to say, it’s really pretty. They’re just dainty and cute. Really rich. Tastes like dessert. That’s really nice. That’s really classy tasting. I could take a really nice nap. What I would like to do is take a nap, like if I was the filling inside a crepe, and they were just the warm blankets over me. Where did brain go? Brain went away. Brain went on vacation. Banana Nutella crepes. This is just going to be a work of damn art. Perfection. The Nutella is not too much. Which, I know there’s no such thing as too much Nutella, but sometimes there is. And this just has the right amount of it going on. You have enough in every bite, but you’re still able to have banana, you can still taste the crepe. So far this one’s my favorite. Come here. Grilled chicken, mushrooms, onion, swiss, and a bed of spinach, with white cheddar sauce. Oh, white cheddar sauce. I like what I’m seeing. I think I miss savory so much from eating 15 plates of sweet (beep), sweet stuff, sweet, good stuff, that I missed this. Almost reminds me of French onion soup, in a weird way, with the onions and the chicken in it, and the cheddar on top. It does give you those kind of vibes. I’m really into this one. I’m feeling this one hard. I’m taking a third bite, which I haven’t done yet. Savory number two. We got the breakfast crepe, which assuming it’s just egg, cheese, bacon, and a few other things. Oooh, no, no, there’s meats in here too. Oh, you know what, it’s like a breakfast burrito. It’s like a breakfast burrito, but in crepe form. This one’s much richer than the one I just had. You’re going to want to eat this entire thing and then just lay in bed and let it be a brick inside of you. It’s the last one, and I feel like I have really had quite the journey of… Quite the pancake journey. It’s going to take me a little bit to process exactly what has happened today. I’m just happy that you were here with me, and you’re all watching this, and hopefully, I don’t look like I’m in complete pain. I’m in a little pain, but I’m… I’m breathing. It’s a really heavy, deep breathing. I’m like, “Hoo” What is the last one? It’s a (beep) pancake slider, because I was eating pancakes all day, you have to end with a pancake slider. Which, honestly, is just so smart. Of course you use a pancake as a bun. I think that’s genius. Let’s see what’s going on underneath this little guy. We’ve got, oh, it’s a cute little patty. Cute little patty. I’m sorry I’m going to touch it all, but I’m going to be the one eating it, so it’s fine. Okay, so you’re getting two different meats in here. You’re getting a sausage patty and bacon, and egg, and you’re getting cheese. Much sweeter than I expected. What is it, nice notes of maple. I think I would do it without one of the pancakes. (Laughs) That’s better. You only need one. I don’t think you need two. You’re getting a little bit of everything, and the pancake, which we were here for. It’s just a great way to really end the day, and end this segment of my life with pancakes. And I have to say, I didn’t dunk any in water this time, which is like, we’ve already won. My hand have never been stickier in my life. I’m not going to lie. I’m just going to sit here for a little bit with my crepes, and my pancakes, and take a very, very long nap, that might turn into a dark slumber. (Ominous music)
