What impact did spanish exploration have on Europe?

Explorers did bring foods and other things back with them. Coffee, chocolate, potatoes, tomatoes, corn, and tobacco were introduced to Europe. Some countries began to grow potatoes and corn instead of wheat. France was one of the few that didn't change and historians believe that this may have been the cause of French Revolution. The wheat had a fungus that could cause people to hallucinate. Maps began to change because of new information and the desire to find a water route to Asia became a goal of most nations. Establishing colonies also became a goal because it meant power and riches for the country and the explorers. Spreading the Christian religion was also a result of exploring. Spanish ships always had a priest with them to conduct prayers on ships and to convert populations they found. France, Spain, and the British were in direct competition for lands, colonies, and products.
