Vermont's first IHOP restaurant offers something other IHOPs do not: real maple syrup. It's not the norm at the International House of Pancakes, but in Vermont, the largest maple syrup producer, it's essential. Managers in South Burlington got special permission to serve it alongside the normal IHOP syrups.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Vermont's first IHOP restaurant will offer something other IHOPs do not. They'll sell actual maple syrup. Apparently this is not normal at the International House of Pancakes, but in Vermont, the largest maple syrup producer, it's essential. So the managers in South Burlington got special permission to serve it alongside the normal IHOP syrups. The rest of America, enjoy your pancakes and just don't think too much about what's in your syrup.

It's MORNING EDITION.
