It may been Halloween, but Christmas is coming sooner than you think - and IHOP is working over time to spread their holiday spirit.

They recently announced a limited time holiday menu that is inspired by the release of the new movie, The Grinch, coming out in theaters on November 9th.

“The holidays are such a special time for families and creating a delicious menu that reflects the fun and whimsy of Whoville in Dr. Seuss' beloved story about the Grinch is the perfect way for us at IHOP to celebrate the season,” said Alisa Gmelich, Vice President, Marketing at IHOP in a statement. “We couldn’t think of a better partner than Illumination and Universal Pictures -- their new animated feature Dr. Seuss' The Grinch is sure to be truly entertaining for all ages.”

Some of the items on the menu now through December 31st include:

Grinch's Green Pancakes: Two Grinch green buttermilk pancakes topped with sweet cream cheese icing, red candy hearts and crowned with green whipped topping.

  • And on top of all of the new menu items, kids under the age of 12 receive a free entree from the kids menu from 4 to 10 pm with the purchase of an adult entree, restrictions apply. Lucky for us, the New Hartford IHOP is among the locations participating.

    What new menu item sounds the best to you? I honestly LOVE pancakes, so I think the green pancakes would be good to try, as well as the hot chocolate and the french toast!
