Olive Garden’s Lunch Panini Review & $25 Gift Card Giveaway!!!

Olive Garden’s Lunch Panini Review & $25 Gift Card Giveaway!!!

When times get tough and household budget cuts are a must, eating out is always the first to go. But hey, we work hard, right? We deserve a little treat every now and again. Have you checked out Olive Garden lately? That’s right, you can take that special someone out for a lunch date and it will not break the bank!!!

Olive Garden is now featuring their Panini (grilled sandwiches) for lunch starting at the low price of $8.95. Oh, and did I mention that the panini comes with homemade soup and salad, and yes their warm, succulent bread sticks!! What a bargain right? So when Olive Garden reached out and asked me if I would go try out their new Panini sandwiches I of course agreed….! First of all I LOVE Olive Garden and I knew I could score some great brownie points with Mrs. Coupon Dad by taking her on a lunch date (smooth right?  LOL)
I had the Grilled Chicken Caprese Panini. There is also the Grilled Chicken Florentine and the Grilled Steak and Portobello.  Not in the mood for a sandwich, don’t forget the Never Ending Pasta Bowl is still only $8.95 !!

The panini was great! It came out perfect, nice and toasty on the outside and just oozing with flavor.  My favorite soup has always been the Pasta e Fagioli……so of course I had a cup of that as well!  I also love how Olive Garden gives you a chilled salad plate for your salad. A five-star touch without the five-star price!!

So reward yourself with a delicious meal from Olive Garden and try the new Paninis!!

Oh, and yes, there is a giveaway… I didn’t forget.

Never Ending Pasta Bowl…Love It!

Olive Garden RestaurantsNever Ending Pasta Bowl at Olive Garden:

I am very excited… the annual Never Ending Pasta Bowl at Olive Garden is here.  Over 40 delicious combination’s for only $8.95! Oh and don’t worry… this promotion also includes your choice or unlimited soup or garden salad and those warm, delicious breadsticks.

The promotion ends October 10th so I will have to plan my attack. You see Sandy, my DW, does not like going with  me to Olive Garden during this event.  The last time I was able to convince her to go with me, we were there for 3 hours… Oh the goodness of pasta.  Okay, maybe that time I went a little over board but who can pass up such a great deal? Besides, it only comes around once per year!

Check it out on the web: Never Ending Pasta Bowl

To help kick off Olive Garden’s annual Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion, a survey was conducted to uncover America’s pasta passions. It found that if given the choice of one sauce to pair with their pasta for the rest of their life, more men than women (46 percent vs. 37 percent) would eat meat sauce.

The survey*, conducted by Olive Garden, fielded by Kelton Research, contained the following highlights:

•More men than women (43 percent vs. 33 percent) count meat sauce as their favorite pasta sauce.
•More than 90 percent of American men are pasta eaters.
•Nearly one-fourth of American men admitted that they wish a delicious meal would never end.
•If given the choice to sit down to an Italian dinner with a relative, movie star, celebrated athlete or the President of the United States, 40 percent of American men surveyed said they would choose their family.
•Nearly 60 percent of American men believe that an Italian restaurant is the perfect place to bring the family.

So now the whole family can be happy with Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Bowl and how often does that happen?
