I love Halloween. I love pancakes. I love The Addams Family. What else do I need in this life?
Wait, I need this! IHOP launched an entire Addams Family menu on September 16 to go with the new 3-D animated Addams Family movie that hits theaters on October 11.
Alisa Gmelich, IHOP’s vice president of marketing, said, “Halloween, and the months leading up to it, are filled with such unadulterated fun for families, so it made perfect sense for IHOP to get in on the action.” She continued, “The quirkiness of The Addams Family matches our own playfulness as a brand, so a partnership with MGM felt like a great fit.”
Gmelich added that signature IHOP items like pancakes, milkshakes, and omelettes were given a fun twist: “Our culinary team had a lot of fun playing around with distinctive flavors and eye-catching colors to create a menu that will be delightfully spooky and delicious to families of all ages, including grown-up kids, all month long.”
The food menu includes Wednesday’s Web-Cakes, Gomez’ Green Chili Omelette, and the Kooky Kids’ Combo.
If you’re thirsty, you can get some creepy drinks as well! Choose from Uncle Fester’s Chocolate Ice Scream Shake (I know what I’m ordering) or Morticia’s Haunted Hot Chocolate.
For you youngsters out there who only know about The Addams Family from the movies from the 1990s, you should probably know that the characters also had their own live-action TV show in the 1960s and the characters were based on artist Charles Addams’ cartoons that ran in The New Yorker between 1938-1988.
Here’s a trailer for the new animated film, by the way.
The limited-time menu runs through November 3, so don’t sleep on this! See you at IHOP!
