Olive Garden Offering $100 “Never Ending Pasta Pass” For 7 Weeks Of Food

by Rachel Baker on September 8, 2014

Here’s an interesting PR move by Olive Garden. There will only be 1000 passes available, but if you love Olive Garden, this is probably totally worth it.

I can completely see someone who was able to get a never ending pasta pass make a social media spectacle of each time they activated their rights to as much pasta as possible. Of course, I’m sure this is EXACTLY what the PR department is hoping happens.

What I bet they hope doesn’t happen: the social media spectacle of having Olive Garden every day for seven weeks, both lunch and dinner…of course, the person doing this would probably want to add in their visits to the doctor to see how much their blood sugar changes, how much weight they gain and if there are any other medically concerning effects of eating as much pasta as they want every single day for seven days. Wait, that’s not a social media spectacle, that’s a documentary waiting to happen.

Olive Garden Offering $100 “Never Ending Pasta Pass” For 7 Weeks Of Food.

Nothing lasts forever, not even a $100 Never Ending Pasta Pass from Olive Garden. But that price will buy you all the pasta, salad, bread and soda you can stuff in your gullet for seven weeks from the chain eatery with its new gimmick.

Despite the name, the never endingness of the deal is limited to seven weeks for whoever holds it.

And there’s another really super big catch, besides the one that promises pasta forever — only 1,000 of the pasta passes will be sold, reports USA Today, starting today at 3 p.m. ET on the Olive Garden web site. The passes are a piggyback PR stunt that goes along with Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Bowl event this month.
