Olive Garden Never Ending Pasta Bowls Giveaway...

I am excited to share this fun giveaway with you! We love Olive Garden and had a great date there! We both had the Never Ending Pasta Bowls and really enjoyed them! After our meal of course I had to order my favorite dessert their Black Tie Mousse Cake! Everything was yummy and we had great service!

Their Never Ending Pasta Bowls are back, through October 10, 2010! For just $8.95 per person, you can enjoy 48 pasta and sauce combinations plus all of the salad, or soup and bread sticks you can eat!


Tradition is Tasty: Olive Garden Survey Finds Spaghetti and Meat Sauce Remain Favorites Among Americans

Survey Helps Kick off Annual Never Ending Pasta Bowl Promotion, Uncovers Pasta Passions

A national survey, fielded this month by Olive Garden and conducted by Kelton Research, found that traditional cuisine often wins when it comes to the American appetite. Almost three quarters (74%) of Americans who eat pasta prefer the traditional pasta sauces of meat, Alfredo or marinara. Nearly one-in-four (22%) pasta eaters consider spaghetti their favorite pasta.

To help launch this year’s Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion, Olive Garden asked Americans to share their pasta passions. Additional survey highlights included:

  • Ninety-seven percent of Americans are pasta eaters.
  • Nearly three quarters (74%) of those who put sauce on their pasta would select meat sauce, Alfredo or marinara if forced to eat one for the rest of their lives.
  • Close to seven in ten (68%) Americans think Italian restaurants are the perfect place to bring the family.
  • When it comes to food, 35 percent of Americans associate Italian cuisine with generosity and abundance, more than any other type of cuisine.

The Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion, available now until October 10th, can appease any pasta preference. The promotion offers never ending servings of pasta and more than 40 pasta-sauce combinations at only $8.95 per guest, and also comes with our never ending garden salad, or soup, and breadsticks.

“This survey shows how much Americans love pasta, and explains why Never Ending Pasta Bowl has been an Olive Garden guest favorite,” said Terry Stanley, executive vice president of marketing for Olive Garden. “It’s fun and it’s a great value at $8.95.”

This year, Olive Garden is introducing two new sauces as part of the promotion: the Creamy Parmesan Portobello Sauce and Chianti Three Meat Sauce. Additionally, for the first time, Olive Garden included a menu add-on of unlimited Roasted Chicken to compliment the pasta dishes.

For more information, you can visit www.NeverEndingPastaBowl.com or www.Facebook.com/OliveGarden.
