IHOP? IHOb? What's with the name change?

IHOP to IHOB

In fact, most people felt like the "b" was probably going to stand for "breakfast", which would have made a lot of sense.

If you were looking for IHOP's Twitter account (as this reporter was), you'll find nothing but a ghostly image of the past, and you'll be redirected to the new IHOb account, as the company officially renamed itself Monday morning.

IHOP DIN created quite a stir last week when it told Twitter TWTR users that it would be changing the last letter of its acronym from a "P" to a "b", teasing major changes for the brand. "I can't understand who thought the breakfast game wasn't working out and that the solution was to become a burger joint".

IHOP first teased a name adjustment last week before finally revealing it Monday.

Some are calling it an "epic fail", saying it's the least likely reason to go to a restaurant known for its pancakes.

Justify Wins Belmont to Become 13th Triple Crown Champ
The most recent horse to win both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and lose at Belmont Park was California Chrome in 2014. Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons, who trained Gallant Fox in 1930 and Omaha in 1935 to Triple Crowns, is the other.

The belt-busting additions to the menu include Cowboy BBQ, which comes with onion rings, bacon and American cheese, and Jalapeno Kick, including sauteed jalapenos, serrano peppers, hickory-smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese and mayo.

"We are definitely going to be IHOP". They wrote, "We're as serious about pancakes as @IHOb is about burgers", with a link to their menu that's got 16 gourmet burgers - and no pancakes.

But Rebelez said the vast majority of the almost 1,800 other locations will still go by IHOP.

"In fact, you can get pancakes with your burger at the same time so you don't even have to choose", he said. That's why the Taste of Home Test Kitchen let out a collective gasp when beloved pancake purveyor IHOP announced that it was changing its name. To add to this, they will also add a bunch of new burgers to their menu to help beef up that reputation.

"As much as we love our pancakes, we'd never change our name to Whatapancake", it tweeted.
