Olive Garden sold out of $100 Pasta Passes for this year's "Never Ending Pasta Bowl" promotion.

According to CNN, the pass can be used from Sept. 22 to Nov. 9 and customers will be able to enjoy unlimited pasta combinations as well as Coca-Cola products for the seven week period. 

The Pasta Pass is an upgraded version of Olive Garden's $10 "Never Ending Pasta Bowl" promotion. The pass-less version of the promotion doesn't include upgraded options like chicken and shrimp for the $10 price. Last year, Olive Garden customers consumed 13 million bowls of pasta during the promotion according to the company. 

If customers didn't receive a pass, Olive Garden is offering another option for obtaining one. In a post to Twitter, the restaurant states "SOLD OUT! But, you can enter for a chance to win one—use #PastaPass to unlock the #contest! http://bit.ly/1F4VuIo." 

Olive Garden is owned by Florida based Darden Inc. who own more than 1,500 restaurants under names such as Bahama Breeze and Longhorn Steakhouse totaling $6.3 billion a year.
