Texas is very proud of where we have come from and what have. I knew many great things came from Texas like Whataburger, Dr. Pepper, and HEB, but I have no clue about a few of these.

1. Silicone Breast Implants. Created in Houston in 1962.

Here is a little bonus which I think we all know and love. Born right here in the LoneStar State and spreading all across the country now..... Whataburger

There are so many other things that were born here in this great state! Even though Kentucky is known for its bourbon, Texas has a few good liquors of its own. Can you think of any other things that were invented here? I would have to say out of all of the things listed above I would have to say Dr. Pepper is my favorite.
