Glendale, CA (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Save on the expensive plane trip and hotel fares this summer and instead enjoy the ultimate indulgent "staycation" at IHOP! I-HOP (island hop, that is!) takes on a tropical feel this summer as guests are invited to take a 'pancation' with three mouthwatering new Hawaiian Pancakes. Grab a Hawaiian shirt or grass skirt and head to your neighborhood IHOP to experience an island vacation without leaving town.
"To say 'mahalo' (thank you) to our guests we have transformed IHOP into the ultimate summer 'pancation' that provides an escape from the everyday and transports guests to the relaxing beaches and sea breezes of Hawaii," said Carolyn O'Keefe, IHOP's senior vice president, marketing. "IHOP guests are looking for value and a respite this summer, and we are bringing the islands to them with an unforgettable Hawaiian experience that brings together the best elements of any vacation -- food, family and fun!"
IHOP's island-inspired Hawaiian Pancake flavors include:
Available at participating locations, IHOP's Hawaiian Pancakes start at $5.99 and are available a la carte or as part of a combination meal including eggs any style, crisp hash browns and a choice of crisp bacon, pork sausage links or ham. A tall glass of one of IHOP's new Iced Coffee flavors is the perfect complement to the sweet tastes of Hawaii and a great way to cool off on a Hawaiian 'pancation.' Freshly-brewed and creamy sweet IHOP Iced Coffees are available in Mocha, Vanilla and Original.
