25. The thing is distinctly American Food was exported all over the world

and some of it features as distinctive food preparation in other countries.

The reason Thanksgiving is celebrated with specific food is because all of it is native to the Americas. Turkeys only existed on this continent. Potatoes, pumpkins and all squash are from this continent. So is corn, chile peppers, coffee, chocolate and tomatoes. Tobacco is too.

Believe it or not potatoes were not native to Ireland, hot chile peppers are not native to Szechuan.
