Ahead of the release of the Despicable Me franchise's fifth movie, Minions: The Rise of Gru, on July 1, IHOP launched eight limited-time food and drink items inspired by the Minions, which will be available from June 21 until Aug. 21. And yeah, there are plenty of bananas.

Ba-Ba-Banana Pudding Pancakes

The loyal followers of Gru are huge banana lovers. They would totall dig these banana-filled buttermilk pancakes topped with creamy banana pudding and banana slices, Nilla wafer cookie pieces, whipped topping, and sprinkles.

These bite-sized donut holes are coated in cinnamon sugar and drizzled with cream cheese icing. As the Minions would say, “Para tú!”

Gru’s Evil Steakburger

To have the energy of a supervillain like Gru, feast on this Black Angus Steakburger stacked with sautéed jalapeños, serrano peppers, onion, hickory-smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese, IHOP's Sharp Cheddar Mac & Cheese, and mayo — all between a brioche bun.

Ba-Ba-Banana Milkshake

Cue “Banana” by the Minions and sip on this banana milkshake blended with Nilla wafer cookie pieces and finished with whipped topping, more cookie pieces, and Minion sprinkles.

Minion Mango OJ Splasher

The summer heat calls for this thirst-quenching mixed soda with orange juice, mango syrup, and lemon-lime soda, topped with fresh blueberries.

Cold Gru Iced Coffee

You can’t go wrong with iced coffee. Made with 100% Arabica cold brew, IHOP says it is “viciously delicious.”

Mischievous Minion Kids Combo

I have a feeling Agnes Gru would love this meal if she were at IHOP. The Mischievous Minion Kids Combo includes one Ba-Ba-Ba-Banana Pudding Pancake, one strip bacon, one sausage link, and scrambled eggs for a mischief-packed breakfast.

Cinna-Minions Family Feast

What I imagine the Gru family would be ordering. The spread includes a basket of 20 pieces of Cinna-Minions, side of cream cheese icing, four servings of scrambled eggs and hash browns, eight hickory-smoked bacon strips, and eight pork sausage links.
