Sadie begins the video by saying, “There’s so much shit you probably didn’t know about Olive Garden that I didn’t know that I know.” She starts listing off the items that people may not know about, like smoothies in the kid’s section. In addition, they offer a variety of spring and sparkling waters, coffees, lemonades, and even a virgin strawberry daiquiri.
