Texans have had their hands on some of the most ground-breaking inventions of all time and you're probably enjoying those inventions to this day, some more than others.

Some might be surprised to learn that things like Ruby Red Grapefruit, Whole Foods, Chili's, and Mary Kay Cosmetics came from Texans. Other items from our great state include the Topsy Tail (girls will understand this) and the Integrated Circuit Board.

The list of inventions by Texans doesn't end there. Quite the contrary, actually. So, let's take a look at these awesome inventions that came from the Lone Star State.
