Free Pancakes at IHOP for National Pancake Day

IHOP Free Pancakes

IHOP's Butterscotch Rocks Pancakes

Update: We braved the masses and got our free pancakes yesterday. Did you?

Free pancakes for IHOP's National Pancake Day?!! I'm so there. Seriously, that's where we are going to dinner tonight. Thanks to Cafe Kim over in Food & Party for letting me know.

IHOP is offering a free short stack of pancakes today, which also happens to be Fat Tuesday AKA Mardis Gras. It's a great day for gluttony, but not such a great day for dieting.

How many calories are in those IHOP stacks of free buttermilk yumminess? Is my butt going to look like a Belgian waffle?


It might.

According to The Daily Plate, a short stack of IHOP's buttermilk pancakes will cost me 330 calories, 9 grams of fat and 51 grams of carbs. One small serving of syrup is 230 calories and 58 grams of carbs.


I worked out hard this morning, though. I did an hour of serious cardio in hip hop class learning Ditch That by The Dream followed by an abs class that left me lying on the floor in a pile of my own sweat.

Do you think my kids and I should splurge on pancakes today? Will you?
