Looks like they can coexist under one house of burger-pancake roof from now on.

The company's scheme to gain attention was launched last month when it announced that its restaurant chain would change its name to IHOb.

Fortunately for those who criticized the new name, the brand has announced it will be returning to its pancake roots.

On Monday, the diner chain took to Twitter to officially reinstate its original moniker with a tongue-in-cheek explanation: "We'd never turn our back on pancakes (except for that time we faked it to promote our new burgers)".

Finally! Vaccination for HIV diseases may protect people; says new study
Mild side effects were common, and around 1% of people in the trial had more serious adverse reactions to the vaccine . In the meantime, the vaccine will be tested on women in South Africa, who are most at risk of contracting the virus.


Either way, the great "Why Are They Changing Their Name" debate is over, seemingly just as quickly as it started.

We're giving away 60ยข short stacks on July 17 from 7a-7p for IHOP's 60th birthday.

The plan does seem to have gotten people talking - after all, now we all know that IHOP serves both their traditional pancakes and, yes, a burger.

Come on, you didn't actually think IHOP really changed its name to IHOb, did you? And as it turns out they're not even changing their name after all. "Consequently, we needed to make a bold signal to disrupt people's thinking about IHOP and make it IHOb".
