Ihop’s Cupcake Pancakes ūüėć

If you haven’t tried Ihop’s limited time cupcake pancakes, you’re missing out. Inspired by bakery-themed sweets, this item is part of a trio of treats, including a cinnamon swirl brioche French toast and red velvet crepes. I have yet to try the other two, but the cupcake pancake features a cake-flavored batter, sprinkles and a sprinkled frosting, that is surprisingly appropriately sweet for both children and adults.

I highly recommend the combo featuring eggs, bacon and sausage (in my case, turkey bacon and sausage) with the red potato hash versus the hash browns. These are cubed potatoes with onions and peppers. Translation, a party on a plate.

Cupcake Pancake Yumfactor: 4 tongues. Addicting and fun.

Red Potato Hash Yumfactor: 4 tongues and a taste bud. A great alternative if you’re not into hash browns like me.

Wendy’s Chili Cheese fries and baked sweet potato review: Chili cheese fries and a side of moldy sweet potato.

Empty chili cheese fries.

I love Wendy’s. I am constantly doing posts on things I have tried, and¬†decided¬†to try the chili cheese fries and the new baked sweet potato. I thought the chili cheese fries were nothing¬†spectacular. I’d say It could have had more of a cheese coverage, but the chili aspect was pretty¬†proportioned, although it was thinly applied, it sufficed. There are also peppers and onions chopped up in the chili which offer decent flavor. All 3 new sides: The macaroni and cheese, the sweet potato and the chili¬†cheese¬†fries are $2.39. Now, for the fun stuff: The baked sweet potato. This item comes with a cinnamon brown sugar butter than smelled heavenly, and I was very much looking forward to trying this item. I open the package, took the foil off to discover mold in my potato. Now, this is not to say that all Wendy’s are to blame, but this should not have happened.

Moldy potato. It even smelled funny. It may not look as moldy in the pic, but it was moldy.

Wendy’s I do not have a¬†death wish, but¬†maybe¬†if I did, I would be obliged to eating a sweet potato that has mold in more than one place. I don’t know who saw that and continued to package it, but that was off-putting. This left a bad taste in my mouth so to speak (corny, yet unintentional pun). I’d like to give it a try at another Wendy’s that actually follows Wendy’s motto of using fresh ingredients in their¬†products, I was annoyed to say the least.


The Talking Spoon Chili Cheese Fries Yumfactor:¬†2 tongues and a tastebud. (2.5 out of 5 stars) Maybe 3 tongues on a good day. Perhaps this particular location just sucks, and everything they make, or the majority of things they make are not that great. I’ll give these another try, but I’d be happier if there was more cheese on it. Tasted somewhat watered down. But then again this location may not be on the ideal Wendy’s. Maybe Sonic’s has better chili cheese fries.
