Olive Garden’s New Dessert Menu Item Is Mind Blowing! (Photos)


By Cooking Panda

Cookie Butter Cake sounds almost too good to be true, but it’s very, very real — and for a limited time, you can eat it at Olive Garden.

The Italian-American chain, which CNN notes has seen a huge boom in profits since revamping its image in 2014 and paying more homage to traditional Italian food, has just released a handful of new menu items you can order through late September, according to Brand Eating.

Most important, the Cookie Butter Cake layers a mixture of crumbled speculoos cookies in sweet butter (cookie butter, basically) between a base of vanilla cake and tops the whole thing off with a caramel drizzle.

Take a look at this beauty:

For about $7.99 and a caloric sacrifice of 530 calories, it’s all yours!

There are 10 other items you might see on the menu, also available until late September. Check them out:

Angry Alfredo Spicy Chicken Dip: Angry Alfredo sauce is pretty self-explanatory and pretty delicious. This cheesy, creamy dip has chicken mixed right in, and you get to scoop it into your mouth with breadstick crostini.

Spinach-Artichoke Dip: This isn’t your average spinach-artichoke dip; it has five different cheeses in it and is served warm with breadstick crostini.

Dip Duo: Between Angry Alfredo Spicy Chicken Dip, Spinach-Artichoke and Five Italian Cheese Fonduta, you get to pick two and eat them with warm breadstick crostini.

Parmesan Zucchini Bites: Lightly breaded, flavorful fried zucchini served with marinara sauce to dip.

Meatball Stuffed Pizza Fritta: Fried pizza dough filled with meatballs, mushrooms, onions, cheese and marinara sauce. Dip in either marinara or Alfredo sauce.
