Texas is known for its friendly people and Texas sized appetites. And with Skinner Pasta being the #1 pasta in Texas, Skinner wants to help you celebrate friendship. Did you know August 6th was National Friendship Day? A great pasta dish can help bring friends together or help you make new friends.
When I moved to Texas 13 years ago, I had no friends in Texas. I can now say that I’m surrounded by great people and friends. The people that I have met since moving to Texas are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Great food has helped me met and build friendship with some fellow Texans. It’s hard for many Texans to say no to a delicious meaty meal like spaghetti and meatballs.

Skinner wants to be part of your friendship celebrations and moments. That’s why Skinner has partnered with Instacart to provide free grocery delivery for customers only in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas. Just buy one (1) package of Skinner pasta and get free grocery delivery. Customers who don’t qualify for free delivery will receive $5 off their order. Delivery must be $35 or more to quality for free delivery or $5 off.

Spend less time at the grocery store and more time building those special bonds with family and friends. More time with friends around the dinner table enjoying a pasta dish without the hassle of having to venture out to the store.
