When one of your favorite fast food menu items disappears, it can be completely heartbreaking. But with these ordering tricks, some of those discontinued options may not actually be gone forever. Prepare your guts.
When IHOP discontinued its cult-favorite Cinn-A-Stack pancakes, there were hundreds and hundreds of requests submitted to bring them back. Sadly, they’re not coming back, at least not anytime soon, although there is a way you can still get them.
If you just order a stack of regular buttermilk pancakes, you only need three other ingredients to put this one together yourself. The cream cheese frosting is still around, as it’s a key ingredient in other items. And cinnamon spread is still around too, since IHOP almost always has something cinnamon on the menu. So just ask for the plain pancakes, along with cinnamon spread, cream cheese frosting, and a dollop of whipped cream. You can even ask for extra cinnamon on the side, because everyone knows that cinnamon spread is the best part.
Lifelong Taco Bell fans might remember the Cheesarito, a simple, straightforward, vegetarian option that was a part of the chain’s original menu. Since they’re so simple, they’re also super-easy to still order.
Just ask for a Cheesy Roll Up, which is basically a soft tortilla with piles of melted cheese. Add scallions and red sauce, and that’s it. You now have a vintage throwback so good it’s had people clamoring for its return. The few ingredients are all staples on Taco Bell’s menu that are unlikely to be going anywhere anytime soon, and that’s a good thing. They’re perfect for a quick snack, and they’re not going to break the bank, either.
Since it was such a popular item that was on the menu for so long, there’s probably a devout following of people who ask for it. And even if they have no idea what you’re ordering when you ask for a Cheesarito, you now know just what to ask for.
