Olive Garden’s Breadstick Bouquets are back and it’s just in time for Valentine’s Day and they’re easier to get this time around.
The gift was a huge success in 2019 when it was introduced online but starting February 13, a limited supply will be made available at all Olive Garden locations.
There was a total redesign on the bouquet wrappers to bring out the “pun” on Valentine’s Day. These include phrases like “My love for you is never-ending,” and “For you (but will you share with me?)”.
Customers will also have the option to buy a special after-dinner mint box that includes a surprise love poem for their special someone:
“Roses are red
Violets are blue
Here’s a box of mints
I made just for you”
The bouquet and the mint boxes are part of Olive Garden’s Valentine’s Day To-Go Dinner for Two. Three courses are included in the promotion, starting at $34.99.
Apart from the breadsticks and mint boxes, diners will also be able to partake of soup or salad, five cheese marinara or alfredo sauce, five-cheese ziti al forno or chicken alfredo for the entree that’s shareable, and a black-tie mouse cake or tiramisu for dessert, also shareable. Olive Garden is taking the saying that “the fastest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach” seriously.
But the company has become known for inspiring romance. Samantha Roberts and Jeff Gilleland had an Olive Garden-themed wedding in the fall of 2019 that went viral. The catered food even had all the Olive Garden classics that also featured a surprise late-night breadstick bar that came complete with marinara and Alfredo dipping sauces.
Olive Garden even surprised the wedding guests with a special gift: a Never Ending Pasta Pass. This gives customers free rein to eat as much as they want at any Olive Garden for the next nine weeks.
The restaurant reported that the gift made Saugatuck, MI, the city that had the most Pasta Passes this year.
