IHOP is giving away its iconic short stacks for a few cents on July 17.

On Monday, the chain changed its Twitter handle from IHOB back to IHOP.

Many on social media, though, did not buy the name change and believed it was simply a promotion for its burgers, the HuffPost said.

On Monday, the chain announced it is returning to its original name, just weeks after a promotion created to incorporate burgers and rename the restaurants International House of Burgers.

Many guessed the restaurant would be embracing "breakfast", "bacon", or "brunch", and were shocked when they found out the name change was for burgers.

A witness near the cave told the Reuters news agency that medical workers carried four people to emergency rescue vehicles. Four boys were retrieved from the cave Sunday, with Narongsak noting that the healthiest boys were removed first.

Heartbroken Twitter users expressed their confusion, but as IHOP said in a tweet, "We just had some burgers to bromote".

Even competitors piled on their commentary.

IHOP spokeswoman Stephanie Peterson told DailyMail.com that the chain is "incredibly proud" of its IHOb campaign.

'Steakburgers will very much remain a part of our regular menu, right there alongside our pancakes'.

However, IHOP's rebranding effort did not create a significant increase in the company's purchase consideration, which measures the likelihood of consumers eating at a particular restaurant chain, YouGov found.
