On Aug. 16, the first 50 Never Ending Pasta Passholders who opted in to the Lifetime Pasta Pass can upgrade to the lifetime pass for an additional $400.

The pass will be available to 24,000 diners for $100 a person and the first 50 people to complete their online transaction can "opt-in" for the lifetime version and upgrade for an extra $400. 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. In 2018, Olive Garden provided the twist of selling a second pass, good for a full year, for $300. This means if a victor were to purchase the $500 Lifetime Pasta Pass and consume a bowl of pasta per day for 60 years, each bowl would each cost less than three cents.

Florida- based Olive Garden is causing a stir this week with a unique promotion.

She even mentioned that her step-father has never physically molested her or touched her inappropriately. She further said that numerous people reading the news, fortunately, have not dealt with domestic abuse.

Let's dive right into the numbers: These truly never-ending, gold-colored passes will cost just $500 each - an incredible deal, really. The sale will last for 30 minutes or until the Never Ending Pasta Passes sell out, whichever happens first. How much would you pay for unlimited pasta, breadsticks and soup or salad for life?

Olive Garden estimates the pass will have paid for itself by the time the holder eats their 45th bowl of pasta. This year's promotion runs from September 23 through November 24. And from there, the value grows exponentially: Olive Garden suggests that if you used the pass to order a bowl a day for the next 60 years, the cost per bowl would be less than three cents - and that's not adjusting for inflation.

Fifty foodies can buy a "Lifetime Pasta Pass" for $500 each beginning Thursday at 2 p.m.
