Olive Garden rolling out lifetime pasta pass

The Lifetime Pasta Passes will guarantee access to unlimited pasta, salad and breadsticks for life.

Unlike the company's previous "Never Ending Pasta Pass" promotions, which let pass holders have unlimited pasta and other foods for several weeks, the "Lifetime Pasta Pass" does not expire. Choices include fettuccine and gluten-free rotini pasta, creamy roasted garlic sauce and marinara sauce; the deal also comes with unlimited soup or salad, breadsticks and Coca-Cola beverages.

This offer will only be available for a half hour or if all 24,000 passes sell out. And though the passes don't go on sale until Thursday, the Italian chain has revealed that this year, 50 Pasta Pass purchasers will get the deal of a lifetime... literally.

Olive Garden is taking its Never Ending Pasta Pass promotion to the next level later this month with the introduction of the "Lifetime Pasta Pass".

Both Democratic state prosecutors pointed to a United Nations report earlier this year warning that more than 1 million species globally are in danger of extinction.

Lovers of the Italian Kitchen's fare can get the passes on the website on August 15 at 2 p.m. E.T. The length of the $100 pass was extended to nine weeks, from the eight weeks covered by last year's pass, and the number offered for sale was raised to 24,000, from the 22,000 that were offered in 2018. In the past, the passes have sold out within minutes of going on sale.

Olive Garden claimed that, if one were to purchase the $500 Lifetime Pasta Pass and somehow consume a bowl of pasta per day for 60 years, each bowl would cost less than three cents apiece.

The Lifetime Pasta Passes - which are, essentially, exactly what they sound like - will entitle 50 lucky recipients to unlimited pasta, soup, salad and breadsticks for their entire lifetimes.

Olive Garden is encouraging fans to visit the website early to join the online waiting room starting at 1:55 p.m. E.T. on Thursday.
