OK, this exceeds even MY tolerance levels

Yes, there are limits to the food that I will enjoy that the rest of you find to be revolting.

I have expressed my undying love for Cherry Chocolate Diet Dr. Pepper.

I have taken massive amounts of grief for my devotion to the Elvis special edition Reese's Peanut Butter Cup with banana creme.

But even I have my limits.

IHOP? You have gone too far. This is the travesty that is being perpetrated against our young.

First, let me introduce you to the Beezlenut Splash. It is -- I'm not kidding -- small blocks of cherry and blue-berry Jello floating in lemon-lime soda.

Roo-girl actually drank this monstrosity. I can attest firsthand that you can slurp the Jello cubes right up the straw.

Can you say sugar high?

But here is the part that makes me truly gag. Even Her Roo'ness threw up a little in her mouth over this.

This is the Who-cake. As in "Horton Hears a Who"-cake.

Here is the desciption of this thing from the IHOP website:

Who-ville's who-cakes with lots and lots of surprises.
Shortcake pancakes of all shapes and sizes.
Real boysenberry and blueberry glaze on top,
With rainbow chocolate chips and a pink lollipop!

I am speechless.

Thank goodness my guys are allergic to food coloring so stuff like this isn't even an option for us. :)

Filled with artificial colors, I'm sure... BLECH!

Yeah, those are awful, but OMG! IHOP! I totally forgot that we are FINALLY getting one. I must scope it out and see if it's open yet. French Toast. Mmmmm . . .

Sadie said...

OMG, I'm so with you on the Cherry Chocolate Diet Dr Pepper. I have about 4 12-packs in my house right now ;)

But OMG...Blech. I can't stand the sweetness of restaurant pancakes as a general rule...but you throw in all that crap?!?! I'm throwing up a little in my mouth right now.

Cherry Chocolate diet Dr. Pepper has got to be the Sybil of soft drinks. :-)
But I'm with you on the IHOP menu!

Eh, I don't think its that horrible. I mean, obviously, its full of crap, but are doughnuts with frosting and sprinkles that much better? I would let my kids get it ONCE as a treat, but that'd be it. Everything in moderation, right?

I feel a little diabetic coma coming on.

Huckdoll said...

That is wrong on so many levels. The Jello pop is pretty bad, too. I can't even handle Jello alone let alone through a straw *shudders*

I saw this somewhere else & nearly started retching right there. Pancakes with a lollipop? EWW

Our 10-year-old twin nephews had this last week on Spring break. They knew about this concoction even BEFORE they had seen the movie. Ah, marketing to children. Which of course, all the companies claim they don't do. We don't have an IHOP which is just as well, because I can eat my weight in strawberry crepes.

Janet said...

The Beezlenut Splash reminds me a bit of bubble tea! I love sucking up those wondrous black pearls of tapioca!

Harmony said...

Yikes! Is IHOP a candy store now instead of pancakes? Crazy!!


I allowed Max to try it one time..once is enough....all he did was play in it...vile is too nice of a word..never, ever ever again..that is all.

Swistle said...

Oooo, I would try that pancake thing! Looks like CAKE! ...But then, I'm on a diet, so EVERYTHING looks delicious.
