22,000 pasta passes went on sale at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday. According to Olive Garden, all passes had been claimed by guests in less than one second.
For $100, the pasta passes provide eight weeks of unlimited pasta, soup or salad, and breadsticks. That’s one week longer than last year’s seven-week endless pasta extravaganza.
The chain’s 50 “Pasta Passport to Italy” also sold out almost immediately. For $200, the recipients of the pasta passport will receive an eight-day, seven-night, all-inclusive trip to Italy for two – plus their eight-week pasta pass.
People who were lucky enough to refresh PastaPass.com at the exact right moment are already sharing their success on Twitter.
