A delicious Middle Eastern appetizer creeps onto American plates, and Budweiser develops a beer cup that integrates Facebook. (4:22)

>> Stephen: HEY, WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NATION, YOU KNOW, THEY SAY YOU

ARE WHAT YOU EAT.

SO I GUESS THAT MAKES ME

CONSTANTLY.

THIS IS THOUGHT FOR FOOD.

FOLKS, I HAVE LONG GUARDED THE

BORDER OF THE AMERICAN MOUTH

SCAPE, A.K.A., THE FREEDOM HOLE.

FOR INSTANCE, WHEN SALSA OUTSOLD

THE CLASSIC AMERICAN CONDIMENT

KETCHUP, I TRIED TO RING THE

SALSA ALARM BUT I MISSED AND HIT

THE TACO BELL.

AND THEY JUST GAVE ME MORE

SALSA.

WELL, FOLKS, THIS INVASION OF

THE BODY SNACKERS JUST GOT

WORSE.

>> WITH MORE AMERICANS TRYING TO

EAT HEALTHY, HUMMUS IS GETTING

MORE AND MORE POPULAR.

>> YEAH, HUMMUS HAS LONG BEEN A

STAPLE OF MIDDLE EASTERN

CUISINE.

DEMAND FOR IT IS REALLY RISING

AS AMERICANS SEEK MORE HEALTHY

SNACKS AND SPREADS.

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL SAYS THE

FOOD SEGMENT WHICH INCLUDES

HUMMUS TOTAL $530 MILLION AT

U.S. FOOD RETAILERS LAST YEAR.

>> Stephen: THAT'S RIGHT.

HUMMUS!

THE DELICIOUS MIDDLE EASTERN

APPETIZER.

I'VE WARNED YOU ABOUT CREEPING

SHARIA, NATION.

NOW WE HAVE SPREADABLE SHARIA.

AND IT'S MADE WITH CHICK PEAS,

THE LEGUME OF DOOM.

KNOWN BY MANY NAMES: SANAGALU,

CHANA, THE BENGAL GRAM OR DOWN

MEXICO WAY, GARBANZO.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

IT'S COME UP OVER OUR POROUS

SOUTHERN BORDER IN LEAGUE WITH

AL PITA TO STEAL AMERICAN SNACK

JOBS ONCE HELD BY ONION DIP AND

YOUR FINGER.

NOT ON MY WATCH BEINGS FOLKS.

STAY VIGILANT.

NEXT UP, FOLKS, I DON'T WANT TO

BRAG.

BUT I HAVE FRIENDS.

AND NOT JUST MY COMMUTING BUDDY

CAR POOL CARL.

HE SAVES ME A TON ON TOLLS AND

ALWAYS LETS ME PICK THE TUNES.

BUT MAKING NEW FRIENDS IS TOUGH.

FOR ONE THING, I'M TOTALLY

UNINTERESTED IN WHAT ANYBODY

ELSE HAS TO SAY.

AND I MEET SO FEW PEOPLE WHO

SHARE THAT INTEREST.

FORTUNATELY, THERE'S A GREAT NEW

WAY TO MAKE FRIENDS.

AND LIKE ALL THE BEST WAYS, IT

INVOLVES ALCOHOL.

>> WHEN TWO PEOPLE CLICKED THEIR

CUPS THEY BECAME FRIENDS.

EACH PERSON THAT ENTERED A BUDDY

VENT WOULD CONNECT THEIR

FACEBOOK PROFILE WITH THE CUPS

CHIP.

SO THEY JUST DID THE SAME AS

ALWAYS.

WENT OUT DRINKING BUD AND MAKING

NEW FRIENDS.

BUDDY CUPS.

THE MORE BUDS, MORE FRIENDS.

>> Stephen: THAT'S RIGHT.

THE BUDDY CUP OR AS IT WILL SOON

BE KNOWN AT BARS EVERYWHERE, THE

STALKER STEIN.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

NOW, I'VE ALWAYS SUSPECTED...

I'VE ALWAYS SUSPECTED THAT THE

ANSWER TO MY LONELINESS WAS AT

THE BOTTOM OF A BEER GLASS.

TURNS OUT I WAS RIGHT.

THESE CUPS ARE WONDERFUL, FOLKS.

JUST PICTURE THIS.

IT'S 2:00 a.m

YOU'RE 12 PINTS DEEP PROPPING

YOURSELF UP ON A POOL CUE

SCREAMING ALONG WITH SOME

STRANGER TO CHUMBAWUMBA.

AND YOU'RE JUST ONE CUP CLINK

AWAY FROM A LIFETIME

RELATIONSHIP WITH A MAN WHOSE

FACE YOU ARE OTHERWISE TOO DRUNK

TO RECALL.

YOU KNOW, FRIENDSHIP.

SO, BRAVO!

BUDWEISER FOR PUSHING THE

ENVELOPE IN BEER DELIVERY

SYSTEMS.

IT'S ABOUT TIME YOU RESPONDED TO

COORS' INGENIUS CAN THAT

HARNESSES ADVANCED THERMO

DYNAMICS TO ALERT YOU WHEN YOUR

BEER IS COLD.

BEFORE THAT, YOU HAD TO RELY ON

THERMAL CONTACT NODES OR IN

LAYMAN'S TERMS, YOUR FINGERS.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

I LOOK FORWARD TO MORE

TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS THAT

UPHOLD THE PROUD AMERICAN

TRADITION OF PUTTING FAR MORE

EFFORT INTO THE CONTAINER THAN

THE BEER IT
