Why The New IHOP NFT Isn't What You Think
It Is
By Camryn Teder
Many franchises such as Starbucks and KFC are getting in on the NFT craze, and Finbold reports that the list of food chains looking to the virtual market is growing by the day. IHOP is also making its own NFT, but it's probably not what you think it is, as this NFT is edible.
IHOP’s NFT is not a non-fungible token, but an abbreviation for New French Toast — the Thick 'N Fluffy French Toast, to be specific. The chain used the play on words to gain attention and announce to the world that their new menu offering is available for dine-in or to-go orders at select locations.
The Thick ‘N Fluffy French Toast features two slices of thick bread dipped in a brand new vanilla cinnamon batter, and it comes in three different flavors: classic, strawberry banana, and lemon ricotta mixed berry. The item is part of a new all-day menu with healthy and indulgent options.
