An article on NPR today pointed out a nice feature in Google search that I had previously been unaware of. It directly compares two food items given by a fairly simple search: "compare Banana vs Orange"

googleI am surprised by the variety of food items they have, including hamburgers vs cheesecake, or fries vs asparagus. The possibilities are endless (not really because a few searches I used didn't work).

Honestly, at the end of the day I'm not really sure about how useful this feature really is, but it is kind of amusing and I could see it handling weird dinner stand offs about the calorie content of beloved foods . . . or something. If there's a way to possibly compare name brand items then that might be helpful, like directly comparing two name brand beers.

Anyways, I always love finding new Google tools that aren't really main stream, regardless of how seemingly pointless they are!
