No more potato pancakes at IHOP!

OK, so I'm probably not their target customer because I haven't been to IHOP in about 3 or 4 years but...
I could rely on them for a potato pancake fix when I needed it. So last weekend hubby & I stop by and I don't see the international selections portion of the menu. I mention this to him and he says "they have to be there somewhere you just don't see them". I ask the waitress if they still have them and she says "no". I ask her when they were discontinued and she said "I don't know".
I'm bummed. Is nothing sacred? When did this happen and why wasn't I consulted?
It's just so odd, since they recently changed their menus (I think back in December), and I know they had potato pancakes after December. (I know this not because I go to IHOP a lot, but because fiance's brother works there.) So it doesn't seem like they would change their menus again so quickly... maybe it really was hidden somewhere on the menu and the waitress didn't know what she was talking about?
I was at a NY IHOP 3 weeks ago and they still had the potato pancakes. I remember because my cousin almost ordered them. I should be going again soon, I'll report back. :)
Maybe it's a regional issue? Even though IHOP is a national chain, I wouldn't be surprised if they marketed certain products only in certain areas. Could be they customized their menus to fit different areas where certain products might be more popular than others. Doesn't the Chain Whose Name Must Not Be Spoken (McDonald's) do this?
