Google Has Great Taste

    February 16, 2007

Google has universally been accepted as one of the finer places to work, both in the United States and abroad. It’s vast amenities, which among others include on-site gyms, dormitories, and a gourmet cafeteria, are often a lucrative tool in attracting the biggest and brightest talent.

Historically, perks that have been associated with multinational corporations would include a luxurious company car, membership the finest country club in the area, and perhaps even an executive washroom.

Google has challenged many traditional mindsets concerning the way it does business; determining what sort of cuisine to serve its employees is no exception to this trend.

You can find many unique culinary combinations in the Google Cafeteria, but one particular treat definitely falls under the category of “Perk 2.0” when it comes to employee benefits:

The Bacon Krispy Kreme Burger

I like burgers; and I adore Krispy Kreme. So, this marriage of tasty goodness seems like winner to me; a veritable flavor explosion that could generate a party in my mouth of epic proportions.

But are these really two great tastes that taste great together?

Jen Chung at the Gothamist writes about her experience at the Google Cafeteria in New York and gives us the scoop from someone who partook of this gastronomic masterpiece:

Someone who actually had the burger told us, "It tasted like a candied burger. Or rather what you would expect a candied burger to taste like."

Well, there is the marriage of the sweet and savory. We suspect some employees might be checking the benefits handbook to see if colonics are covered.

What’s next on the horizon for the Google cafeteria? What other culinary concoctions will those wacky gourmet chefs come with next?

I can’t say for sure, but if you’re listening, I suggest giving serious though to securing the rights to serve Deep Fried Coke to the Googlers.

As far as food goes, it really could be the greatest thing since sliced bread.
