Devin Driscoll, the brand manager for o.b., told The Blast the company was “flattered” by the chain’s new logo but had a warning.

“At o.b. we are flattered that IHOb’s new logo so closely resembles our own! Just make sure you don’t confuse the two — o.b. tampons and syrup don’t mix!”

The International House of Pancakes will announce what the “b” will stand for on Monday, June 11, 2018.
