It was so much simpler when it was just about pancakes.
IHOP has made yet another name change, much to the dismay of many.
This is not the first time the beloved pancake house has made a switch. Back in 2018, the International House of Pancakes changed its name to the International House of Burgers — or IHOb. This temporary change was meant to promote IHOP's then-new line of burgers, but fans of the restaurant were not having it.
IHOP is once again changing the "P" part of their acronym, hinting on Twitter that all will be revealed on June 3rd.
What could the P be? Find out June 3. #IHOP https://t.co/fARA5GmQj1— IHOP (@IHOP)1558986630.0
They even created a video full of criticism to the first name change, poking fun at the overwhelming amount of Twitter reactions they received.
Last year, the Internet had a lot to say about IHOb. Well, we heard you. Stay tuned for June 3. #IHOP https://t.co/ycbk0rKAY8— IHOP (@IHOP)1559047931.0
Many have speculated about what exactly the new P stands for.

IHOP is known for its delicious pancakes, which are served 24/7, according to their website.
Their about page hasn't changed, and still emphasizes "pancakes" on their mission statement.
"For 61 years, the IHOP family restaurant chain has served our world famous pancakes and a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items that are loved by people of all ages — offering an affordable, everyday dining experience with warm and friendly service."
IHOP so far hasn't released a statement on the matter, so it looks like we'll just need to wait until June 3rd.
In the meantime, everyone will most likely continue to complain about it on Twitter. However, it's almost guaranteed that IHOP will continue to sell pancakes, and that is all that matters.
In the (paraphrased) words of Homer Simpson, "Mmmm, pancakes."
