Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Pass promotion watched all 21,000 Pasta Passes get purchased in less than 60 seconds after going on sale Thursday afternoon.

The passes went on sale Thursday at 2 p.m. and by 2:01 p.m., a message on the pass website read, “Thank you for your interest in purchasing a Pasta Pass. All 21,000 Pasta Passes available for sale have been claimed, but you can still get one.”

The passes guarantee “never ending soup, salad, breadsticks, soda and, of course, pasta to the lucky owner,” Fox News reported. Each pass was $100 and is valid for seven weeks.

The chain is partnering with eBay to auction off an additional 21 Pasta Passes for those who weren’t able to snag theirs. However, for those who bid through Olive Garden, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Feeding America, an organization that brings food to communities in need throughout the U.S., Fox News noted.

According to Yahoo Finance, bids for the additional passes range from $440 to $750, and the auction closes on Sunday.

This was the third straight year that Olive Garden brought back the Never Ending Pasta Pass, USA Today noted.

“Another year. Another failed attempt at obtaining a Pasta Pass,” said one Twitter user in Texas.

“I just bought an Olive Garden never-ending Pasta Pass and I’ve never felt so alive,” wrote another Twitter user in California.

Twitter users weren’t as active in the aftermath of this year’s Pasta Pass release compared to two years ago when the same madness had disappointed customers using the hashtag #pastagate, and that feeling remains this year, the Orlando Sentinel noted.
