IHOP says it's changing iconic name; pancake lovers flip out
The International House of Pancakes (IHOP) is changing its name.
(FOX NEWS) -- The International House of Pancakes (IHOP) is getting ready for a new name.
That's according to an article on FOX News.
"For 60 pancakin’ years, we’ve been IHOP,” the restaurant chain said on Twitter Monday. “Now, we’re flippin’ our name to IHOb. Find out what it could b on 6.11.18. #IHOb."
The tweet has sparked thousands of comments on the social media platform.
In the lead-up to next week’s reveal, IHOP also tweeted a poll, asking, “IHOb? What could it b?”
People can vote for one of four options: biscuits, bacon, butternut squash and barnacles.
However, that hasn't stopped Twitter users from weighing in with other ideas.
“Blueberries?” a user asked the chain.
“Blueberries, bacon, breakfast... There are so many possi-b-ilities,” IHOP responded.
“Burritos I called it years ago,” a different person tweeted.
"Nope, keep guessing!” the company wrote back, shooting down the idea.
IHOP also had a message for a user who said it's “breakfast.”
Someone else chimed in, "100% international house of barbecue, it is going to be BARBECUED pancakes."
"whoaaa there," IHOP tweeted.
The move isn't a joke, a company rep told the New York Post..
