A French holiday whose only purpose is dedicated to stuffing oneself full of the scrumptious round treats. But with the excuse being Candlemass, a feast to commemorate the purification of the Virgin Mary and the presentation of baby Jesus at the temple. In France, this holiday is called la Chandeleur, Fête de la Lumière, or Jour Des Crêpes. This day is also a day to celebrate the oncoming of spring with crepes being symbolic of the sun since the crepe is round and yellowish. In the U.S. this is also Groundhog Day. We don't have any ground hog but plenty of crepes on the menu!
March 12, 2019-Pancake Day - Shrove/Fat Tuesday
Pancake Day, also called Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras (which is French for "Fat Tuesday"), is the last day of feasting before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. It's called so due to the tradition of eating pancakes on this day. The tradition comes from a time where any rich foods were eaten on the day before Lent before fasting begins. The date can vary from as early as February 3rd to as late as March 9th. In 2019 it will fall on March 12. Shrove Tuesday, a movable feast, is determined by Easter. The expression "Shrove Tuesday" comes from the word shrive, meaning "confess". Shrove Tuesday is observed by many Christians, including Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists and Roman Catholics, who "make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent, and what amendments of life or areas of spiritual growth they especially need to ask God's help in dealing with."
May-National Egg Month
The entire month of May is dedicated to the many virtues of nature’s own miracle food, the egg. Eggs provide high-quality protein, containing all the essential amino acids our bodies need in a near-perfect pattern. In fact, the quality of egg protein is so high that scientists frequently use eggs as the standard for measuring the protein quality of other foods. The incredible edible egg is offered at iHop in a variety of omelette's or cooked to your preference as scrambled, sunny side up or over easy. You can even choose your ingredients to create your own omelette's.
The celebration in the United States is on this date because it was when the waffle iron was awarded a U.S. patent by C. Swartwout in 1869. The ancient Greeks are said to have been the first waffle bakers — they cooked flat cakes between two metal plates held over burning embers.
September 18-National Cheeseburger Day
Cheeseburger day is celebrated annually on the 18th September. This celebration of one of the most iconic and delicious foods of the USA, has been taking place every year since the early part of the Roaring 20s era. iHop has a variety of burgers to choose from so you to can celebrate this day!
September 23-National White Chocolate Day
The batter is mixed and the griddle is hot with the butter and syrup waiting to pour over your order to celebrate National White Chocolate Day while you fork into our Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Pancakes! You may not have time to make a pancake breakfast but that is okay, pancakes make a great dinner as well and you can have either meal at iHop where we know how to make pancakes. We have a variety of fruit toppings, and 5 flavors of syrup.
Over 400 billion cups of coffee are consumed each year. It is a world commodity that is second only to oil. Don't forget to take a coffee break (or two) to celebrate this historical and important beverage! And at iHop Wheaton (as at all iHops) you have a bottomless pot!
What's all the egg-citement about? Egg people like to party it seems. World Egg Day celebrates and promotes the benefits of eggs. It is truly an international celebration, from China and New Zealand, to Great Britain and Mexico. This is no yolk. Eggs are now being counted as a "superfood" and among the most nutritious on the planet. High in nutrition, and low in fat, people all over the world enjoy eggs. This day was probably created by the International Egg Commission which promotes the egg industry. They have a wealth of information on eggs, and about World Egg Day.
French toast is a food made by frying bread in an egg mix, though many variants exist by region and by ingredients – some including sweet additions such as fruit, syrups and milk. French Toast Day encourages you to try this delicious dish (also known as eggy bread and poor knight’s pudding) in place of your normal breakfast (or dessert).
Pancake Day, let’s face it, is mostly an excuse to have Maple Syrup. So let’s dispense with the charade and get down to it – Maple Syrup Day is the real deal, and a great excuse to consume it by the glassful! We don't serve by the glass but your welcome to use as much as you want on your meal. Not fond of maple? We have 5 types of syrup offered: blueberry, strawberry, old fashioned maple, butter pecan, and boysenberry.
December 30-International Bacon Day
An unofficial holiday (currently), first celebrated in Bedford, Massachusetts in 2000–its observance is the Saturday before Labor Day (some are trying to make the date December 30). Bacon Day celebrations typically include social gatherings where dishes containing bacon are consumed. Any holiday celebrating the main stays of breakfast, we at iHop Wheaton believe in recognizing.
Blueberry pancakes are a wonderful treat to enjoy anytime of the year. They are nutritious enough to eat for breakfast, tasty enough for a mid-day snack, and easy enough to make for dinner. They truly are a food of the Gods, and they are so universally loved that they even have their own day! One day of every year you can celebrate the sacred blueberry pancake and give it the love and respect it deserves. On this day you can eat blueberry pancakes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert with no guilt or judgment. You can even double your pleasure at iHop, we also have blueberry syrup.
