16. Grinch’s Green Pancakes — IHOP

You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch.

Why would you spread your green mean bravado all over the good name of IHOP pancakes? Is it for the advertising dollars? Because you’re certainly getting your fair share, Mr. Grinch! Or, you want to make the standard pancake an interesting concoction of green and fluffy?

Well, if you’re an adventurous eater, then make your way to IHOP and give the Grinch’s Green Pancakes a shot. Combining their famed-buttermilk pancakes with green food coloring, and topped with sweet cream cheese icing and red candy hearts, all topped with green whipped topping, and you will have a meal that is either naughty or nice to your tummy.

Which is sort of a mixed bag. I mean, we all know the story of green eggs and ham, right? That used to disgust me a kid, and I’m still haunted by that memory. So, when I see green pancakes, the bad taste in my mouth, kind of returns. But, hey, some will like it.

The Grinch’s Green Pancakes won’t be the only IHOP menu item to make this list, but it is, indeed, one of the more interesting.

Mr. Grinch is a mean one, but he sure knows how to make food interesting.
