$25 Olive Garden Gift Card Giveaway in Celebration of the Never Ending Pasta Bowl


 The Crazy House loves the Olive Garden and right now we have 40+ more reasons to love them even more!

Until October 10, you can enjoy 40+ combinations of the Never Ending Pasta Bowl at Olive Garden for only $8.95!!! These combinations include two new sauces plus you receive unlimited garden salad or soup and breadsticks!!



Recently, Olive Garden conducted a national survey to uncover America's pasta passions. Here are some of their findings!!

Interesting Finding #1

If given the choice to sit down to an Italian dinner with a special person like a relative, movie star, celebrated athlete or the President of the United States, among others, 47 percent of Americans would choose a family member.

Interesting Finding #2

Nearly one-fourth of Americans admitted that they wish a delicious meal would never end.

Interesting Find #3

 If choice was no longer an option when it came to pasta sauces, 74 percent of Americans would stick to meat sauce, Alfredo or marinara sauce for the rest of their lives.

Interesting Find #4

When it comes to food, 35 percent of Americans associated Italian cuisine with generosity and abundance, more than any other type of food. Other fare that comes to mind includes American (31%), Asian (18%) or Mexican (13%).

While interesting, these finds do not shock me. Our family loves Italian food and I have always looked at it as a kind of "soul food" that we love to enjoy with our family! My family and I used to joke that we could make a meal out of the salad and breadsticks at Olive Garden alone!

Hurry to Olive Garden because the Never Ending Pasta Bowl deal ends on October 10th!!!!
