Not to mention chocolate, vanilla, and tomatoes (or tomatos or tomaaahtos).
Good thing the Europeans didn't arrive and destroy the Native American Culture until these were discovered.

There is a house in New Jersey where it is said a man ate a tomato for the first time and lived. It's one of those Civil War style houses with a brass placque about the event. The whole town turned out expecting him to die horribly. I don't like tomatoes unless they are tomato paste and don't look like a huge poisonous berry.
