While pasta is not hard to come upon in our daily lives, Olive Garden’s annual Pasta Pass has once again appeared and disappeared in a flash. The restaurant offered 22,000 of its regular $100 Pasta Pass cards this year, offering “Eight weeks of unlimited servings of pastas, sauces and toppings from the Never Ending Pasta Bowl menu” according to the official site, but that wasn’t all. Olive Garden also offered 50 special passes for $200 that included a special all-inclusive vacation to Italy from April 7 – 14 2018 on top of the 8 weeks of unlimited pasta.
The passes went on sale Thursday, September 14 at 2 p.m. EST at PastaPass.com. The chain planned to keep the sale going for 30 minutes, but just as with last year the passes sold out in literally one second. This year the chain sold 1,000 more passes than it did last year, 22,000 in all.
