Salon's Francis Lam sampled one of IHOP's bizarre cheesecake-stuffed pancakes and wrote the experience up in gut-churning detail:

Bite 2: OK, there's not so much cheesecake in here, but it was weirdly, obviously squeezed on, like with one of those caulk guns Taco Bell uses for its "sour cream." It tastes pretty good, though.

Bite 4: Water, water, water. Clean it out. Focus. Concentrate. Oh look! I forgot about my side of sausage!
