Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
OLIVE GARDEN’S GIANT ITALIAN CLASSICS
Have you ever been to a restaurant and wanted more of something because it was so tasty? Well, in 2019, Olive Garden took this concept and took it to a whole another level.
It always feels a bit weird when a restaurant releases new items on April Fools Day but that’s exactly what they did. The chain announced that they were bringing giant versions of their food to the table and when we say big we mean huge!
The price of the menu started at $12.99 and you could get a variety of family favourites including 12 ounce Meatball, 11.5 inches long Chicken Parmigiana, supersized four pasta shells with cheese and Shrimp Alfredo shells. Every dish is served with unlimited soup, salad or bread sticks.
The limited menu was available between 1st April – 27th May. The giant dishes got reasonable reviews with the pasta being the best.
