** Probably the most famous case of this is the carrot, which originally came in a variety of colors ranging from white to red to purple. Orange carrots only became widespread after Dutch farmers during and after the EightyYearsWar bred their carrots that way to proclaim their support for the House of Orange (and thus Dutch nationalism). For whatever reason, the color spread and stuck.

* A downplayed example in an episode of "Arthur" featuring George's mother being puzzled by a purple object she picks up in the grocery store that turns out to be purple okra, which Sue Ellen's father claims is delicious (so this would be PaletteSwappedAlienFood with Alien just meaning from another country on Earth).
