People On Twitter Can't Stop Talking About Chelsea Clinton's Spinach Pancakes

Wrong, or so wrong it’s right?

Posted on

On Tuesday, March 7, people across the country celebrated National Pancake Day with a delicious stack of syrup-drizzled pancakes.

Everywhere, that is, except in Chelsea Clinton's kitchen. Instead of preparing traditional buttermilk pancakes, the former first daughter made a heaping stack of "spinach pancakes" 😷.

Apparently, Clinton made them partly to try and sneak more iron into her daughter's food.

Due to the "pureed spinach" in the mixture, the pancakes were a glowing shade of green, and bore no similarities to the classic buttery, beige breakfast staple.

While her daughter may have enjoyed them, Clinton's green pancakes had her Twitter followers feeling SHOOK.

Some people were repulsed:
