Want to make your next meal more entertaining? If you’re a subscriber to Munchery, you can (for a limited time) order your dinner with a custom soundtrack by Google Play Music radio stations. That’s right… custom pairings of food and music right at your fingertips.
From August 17 to September 11, purveyor of locally sourced meals and delivery platform Munchery is offering the promotion in hopes of creating a better experience for its users. “Taste and sound both have a special way of bringing people together, so it felt natural to connect them in one simple, fun experience,” said company vice president of food Nicolas Bernadi in a press release.
This offering will only be available twice a week in Munchery’s current markets of New York, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The day’s meal and music selection will be displayed on the company’s website, mobile apps, and in its daily menu emails.
Munchery’s custom pairings will only provide songs through specific radio stations in conjunction with Google Play Music. So don’t expect to be able to download the latest Taylor Swift song or plan on using the access code that comes with your meal to play the latest album from Ed Sheeran.
As you might expect, the pairings will be based on moods. Some of the pairings include: “Coffee Shop Indie Radio,” around the company’s sinful chocolate cake; “Classic Rock Summer,” which features baby back ribs, BBQ beans, ginger steak, and a maple-candied bacon bun; and “Sunny Patio Vibes,” with grilled chicken and broccolini.
There are no additional fees when you order one of these custom meals — the code for Google Play Music’s radio station is complimentary.
This is the latest piece of news to come from Munchery since it raised $85 million in new funding in May.
