Getting your hands on an Olive Garden Pasta Pass seems to be getting harder and harder each year. The card is essentially a golden ticket to chow down on as much Olive Garden pasta as you want, every day for three month. It's beautiful.
While this year's batch was claimed almost instantaneously, half a second to be exact, Olive Garden is giving fans another shot at the Pasta Pass, free of charge.
In celebration of the 5th anniversary of the Pasta Pass, Olive Garden launched an online scavenger hunt where 10 clever fans will have a chance to get their hands on the coveted meal voucher free of charge.
Earlier this week, the Italian restaurant chain launched a mysterious online countdown clock. Once the clock struck zero, the riddles appeared with the promise of pasta. Here's an example:
"Organization dedicated to fawning over grand forks's best food reviewer."
Each of the riddles, puzzles, and ciphers led to the name of an Instagram handle, Twitter profile, or Facebook group. Once you figure out the puzzle, send a direct message to the profile with the secret phrase "Pasta Pass Please". If you're the first to do so, you'll get your Pasta Pass.
Olive Garden says they'll do their best to provide live updates with which passes have already been claimed, but at the time of publication, folks have already begin sleuthing, though none have been claimed yet.
There will only be one clue per profile and only one free pass can be claimed from each profile. More details on the riddles can be found here. Happy hunting, everyone!
