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:
