Watch Stephen Colbert Make Fun of 'Extra Expensive Science Milk' and Pizza Hut's Mind-Reading Menu

It's another edition of Thought for Food.

Last night on The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert tackled two new food inventions: Coca-Cola's Fairlife milk concept and Pizza Hut's mind-reading menu. First, about that "extra expensive science milk" Colbert jokes: "Yes, Fairlife: For people who want life that's just shy of good." He goes on, "Folks, these 'emojineres' have found a way to break down milk for parts and then put it together any way they want. It's like they got Frankenstein to lactate."

Finally, Colbert tackles the mystery of Pizza Hut's new iPad-based eye-ball stalking menu: "Pizza Hut must have developed it after noticing how their customers eyes were always darting around in search of something edible." Colbert loves it: "Pizza Hut has eliminated the biggest barrier to ordering at their restaurant: informed consent."
