Remember when IHOP freaked out the entire internet after announcing it would no longer be called the International House of Pancakes and instead would become IHOb, International House of Burgers? It feels like years have passed since then, but it’s only been a month since that fateful day. The good news is that the name change is (surprise!) not permanent after all. It was just a marketing stunt.

IHOP confirmed the news on its social media channels today while also promoting an upcoming deal on 60 cent pancakes for the brand’s 60th birthday on July 17.
