With the fall season, IHOP restaurants across the county have added to their menus. As I went into IHOP the other day it was decked out for Halloween. Cobwebs and spiders covered the pictures on the walls, along with friendly pumpkins on display. The wait wasn't long to be seated. I glanced through the menu, but what caught my eye was the picture of the Scary Face pancake.
It's probably not everyday that an adult orders the Scary Face pancake with no kids at their table. My waiter just smiled and said okay. As I waited for my meal my waiter brought me the Splashberry drink I ordered. At first sip I tasted mostly the strawberries at the bottom of the drink. As I gently stirred up the drink, lemon-lime soda and orange juice flavors began to creep in until it was like a fruit medley in my mouth.
At last the Scary Face pancake arrived. The plate size buttermilk pancake looked and smelled delicious. With oreo's stuck on whip cream for eyes, a strawberry nose, and candy corn on whip cream for the mouth and teeth, I wondered how it would taste.
I've had pancakes with chocolate chips, blueberries, and more, but never oreo's and candy corn. As I took a bite of one of the eyes on the Scary Face pancake the taste was delicious. The candy corn I thought may have been too much sugar, but I was pleasantly surprised. The face got scarier as I slowly carved through the pancake and poured red strawberry syrup over it. It was delicious to the very last bite.

Even though the Scary Face pancake is here for a short time. The pumpkin pancakes are here for the season. The pumpkin pancakes go great with a nice warm cup of hot cocoa or coffee. Though I was full from my pancake I ordered some pumpkin pancakes to go. They smelled so good, like fresh pumpkin pie, it was hard not to take a bite. The next morning they tasted just as delicious as they smelled the night before.
