More Du-par's Retro Pancake Prices

A bit more reminiscing and singing.

Here's another part of the  day of 40-cent pancake plates on Tuesday, when the shop planned to sell a short stake of buttermilk hotcakes for the same prices as they did in 1948.

An estimated 1,900 pancakes were sold on Tuesday.

See the reminisces, and a new group of students from Colfax singing "Yes, We have No Bananas." Also an interview with event organizer Jack McGrath.

Also see a photo gallery and story here: 

And, also see an early-event video here:

It's too bad that Du-Par's no longer uses the recipe that made those hotcakes famous in the first place. The consistency and texture is not the same as prior to the Naylors' ownership. It's really unfortunate that they chose to do away with what was the perfect pancake.
