Burger King trolls IHOP in the best way possible

Burger King trolls IHOP in the best way possible

All-day breakfast lovers, the mystery has been revealed.

Last week, IHOP shook up social media by announcing that it would change its name to "IHOB," which, let's face it, doesn't scan as well as "IHOP". Though we have a soft spot for the classic IHOP menu (here's a short stack of copycat recipes), the restaurant's new line-up of mouthwatering burgers sure does sound delicious.

IHOP (International House of Pancakes) has officially announced their name change to IHOb (International House of Burgers), and the fast food chain Wendy's shaded the new name on Twitter!

"But these are new 'Ultimate Steakburgers", the website stated, with "all-natural, 100 percent USDA choice black Angus beef".

Unfortunately, few people guessed it, and that's exactly because the image of IHOP being a breakfast place held too strong. New additions include a mushroom and Swiss topped burger, one with jalapenos and pepper jack cheese, and one covered in BBQ sauce and crispy onion rings.

Starting Monday, you can order one of seven burgers at IHOb restaurants across the country.

The lawsuit could easily go all the way to the Supreme Court before there is a resolution, which could take years. That's not exactly what the attorneys general were arguing, but that's what the Justice Department position is.

Wendy's is trolling IHOP on Twitter after the pancake house chose to become the International House of Burgers.

Whether the rebranding sticks or is a temporary change, IHOP wouldn't say.

Burger joints, meanwhile, fired off blistering tweets about IHOP's change. In May, IHOP reported that almost half of its customers come in during breakfast time. "If you want a burger and beer, you are not going to come to IHOP".

Burger King took it a step further and altered its logo on all its social media platforms to "Pancake King".

"The chain is better known for breakfasts than for burgers, and that's exactly what the division of Dine Brands Global wants to change", Time reported.

A mother-daughter duo at the same eatery said they wouldn't think of IHOP for dinner, while a young man carrying a skateboard said he patronizes that IHOP in the wee hours of the morning because it's the only place open at that hour - and even then he orders pancakes.
