Beginning next week, IHOP will be ushering in the season of spooks and goblins by serving up a free Scary Face Pancake to children 12 and under with the purchase of an adult main course. The promotion will begin on Oct. 24 and run through Oct. 31, 2023.

Scary Face Pancakes are made by decorating a buttermilk pancake with whipped topping eyes dotted with miniature Oreos, a strawberry nose, and a diabolical grin. The jagged teeth are fashioned from candy corn.

Note that the offer is valid at participating locations for dine-in only between the hours of 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Scary Face Pancakes are available at IHOP for the entire month of October.
