These thick-cut slices of rich round brioche bread are soaked in a lightly-sweetened vanilla batter and grilled to a delicate warm golden crispiness that is perfectly ready to layer with three flavorful varieties of toppings: Bananas Foster, Berry Berry and Peaches & Cream, and will be in restaurants beginning April 15th. "We`re delighted to bring our guests the next generation of French Toast," said Natalia Franco, Senior Vice President, Marketing, International House of Pancakes, LLC. "They have been coming to IHOP restaurants for years because they know no one makes French Toast like IHOP restaurants can, and they love the way we continually find ways to surprise and delight them. Our new Brioche French Toast is unlike any they`ve ever tasted-it will delight our French Toast fans-and create new ones!" Brioche French Toast comes in three delicious and distinctively new flavors: * Bananas Foster Brioche French Toast comes with a New Orleans Foster`s sauce made with sliced bananas, caramelized in a buttery brown sugar glaze, and whipped topping. * Berry Berry Brioche French Toast layers blueberries and strawberry topping with a luscious dusting of powdered sugar and whipped topping. * Peaches & Cream Brioche French Toast combines sweetened sliced peaches, honey-roasted pecans and vanilla cream drizzle with a dollop of whipped topping. Guests may enjoy three slices of Brioche French Toast alone, as a delicious indulgent treat, or as part of an IHOP Combo, with two eggs, done the way they like them, optional choice of crispy bacon, pork sausage links or a grilled ham slice, along with IHOP restaurants' signature golden hash browns.
