Well guys, it's the first day of fall, and that officially means it's spooky season. And although Halloween itself isn't for another month or so, fans of the fall holiday are already kicking things off by setting up decorations, finding haunted houses, and — most importantly — eating everything off of IHOP's new spooky menu, for example.
So, if you aren't already familiar with IHOP's new spooky menu, prepare yourself for a creepy, kooky meal.
Since Sept. 16, early morning breakfast enthusiasts and Halloween fanatics have been taking advantage of the glorious holiday menu at IHOP, which is the limited-time "Spooky Menu."
According to the press release, it's inspired by none other than The Addams Family (because of the upcoming MGM film!), and it includes seriously haunting items that no Halloween-lovin' mortal would dare pass up. So if you can handle the kookiness, definitely check out what it has to offer.
What is IHOP's spooky menu? We've got the delicious details.
Those who are in the mood for something sweet can dine on Wednesday's Web-Cakes.
This delicious dish, per the release, is buttermilk pancakes topped with cupcake icing, Hershey's Syrup, and violet whip). Wash it down with Morticia's Haunted Hot Chocolate (which includes toasted 'mallow hot chocolate, violet whip, and a drizzle of Hershey's Syrup) or Uncle Fester’s Chocolate Ice Scream Shake (which includes chocolate ice cream shake and violet whipped topping).
But, the spooky menu offers savory options as well.
If something savory is what you crave, on the other hand, there's Gomez’ Green Chili Omelette (which, according to the press release, includes marinated pulled pork, Jack & cheddar cheese, roasted peppers, onions, green chile verde sauce, and sour cream), as well as the Kooky Kids' Combo (which combines Wednesday’s Web-Cakes served with one scrambled egg, one bacon strip and a pork sausage link).
While the spooky menu is to die for, there's controversy behind the hot chocolate.
Some are saying Morticia's Haunted Hot Chocolate isn't all it's cracked up to be — Twitter user @superweeniehtjr was slightly disappointed with the ~aesthetic~ of their beverage on Friday, Sept. 20.
But, I'm sure it's a case-by-case basis, and not all versions of the drink are — well — quite like the one below.
It definitely gave me a fright.
Oh, and for those anticipating the new Addams Family film, get ready for quite a performance, because the cast is seriously next level. Charlize Theron is playing Morticia, Chloe Grace Moretz is going to play Wednesday, Oscar Isaac is going to play Gomez, Finn Wolfhard will play Pugsley, and Nick Kroll is going to play Uncle Fester.
So it goes without saying this is going to be a gruesomely good time.
Like I said, Halloween isn't coming for another few months, but IHOP's spooky menu is here until Nov. 3 to celebrate the new Addams Family movie.
So if you see someone dressed like Wednesday Addams at IHOP eating endless amounts of purple pancakes, don't be scared — it's definitely just me.
