IHOP returns to original name after burger stunt

IHOP has changed its name back from IHOB

IHOP has changed its name back from IHOB

While pancakes are front and center again, that doesn't mean IHOP's burgers are going anywhere.

IHOb - the International House of Burgers - is no more.

Be sure to join the chain's Pancake Revolution eClub and get THREE free meals for signing up.

When the restaurant chain announced 60 cent short stacks, they also fessed up to faking their IHOb name change.




Last month, IHOP caused quite the furor when it "announced" it was changing its name to IHOb, which stood for International House of Burgers.

What really matters is that even though IHOP is back to IHOP, it will continue to serve its mediocre burgers regardless of the letter at the end of its name. The internet was outraged at the move, either because of IHOP betraying its initial objective as a pancake emporium or that it was just some kind of elaborate marketing scheme. "Except for that time we faked it to promote our new burgers".

IHOP spokeswoman Stephanie Peterson told DailyMail.com that the chain is "incredibly proud" of its IHOb campaign. That's what we're after: "giving more people more reasons to come to IHOP more often".

Another fan wrote that they didn't "abbreciate being lied to".
