Google will complement NestlÃ©'s long list of well-known brands, including Perrier water, Stouffer's, LifeSavers, and Nesquick.
NestlÃ© says Google will be renamed NesGoogle and have a recipe section added to its main page.
"We believe that this acquisition will be good for the consumer," says NestlÃ© CEO Peter Brabeck. "Now anyone on the Internet can connect to NesGoogle, which will automatically determine their region and point them to retail outlets for NestlÃ© products."
Sources close to the deal disclosed that Google CEO Eric Schmidt was coerced into accepting the deal with NestlÃ©. Mr. Brabeck is alleged to have placed
a large bowl of NestlÃ© Crunch Pieces in front of Mr. Schmidt during their discussions, refusing to allow him to eat any until agreeing to the takeover, while promising a free lifetime supply upon completion of the deal.
Asked to comment on the deal, Mr. Schmidt had very little to say; his only comment sounded something like "Mmmmmm."
NestlÃ© CEO Brabeck, asked what NestlÃ© plans to buy next, replied that NescroSoft has a nice ring to it.
