Olive Garden's Pasta Passes Sold Out in Less Than 1 Second

If you blinked, you probably missed out

The Olive Garden pasta passes and special pasta passport sold out this year in less than a single second.

Olive Garden’s Pasta Passes sold out in less than 1 second today. The 22,000 passes were up for grabs at 2 p.m. Eastern time today for $100 each, and all of them sold out in less than a single second, breaking the record for passes offered in previous years that sold out at lightning speed.

A spokesperon for the brand told to The Daily Meal that, "We can confirm all passes were claimed by guests in less than one second."

Each pass entitles the bearer to unlimited pasta, sauces, toppings, soup or salad, and breadsticks beginning Sept. 25 all the way through Nov. 19. This year, 50 Oliver Garden customers who snagged those coveted Pasta Passes were also able to purchase an all-inclusive “Pasta Passport” trip for two to Italy for only $100 more.
