Well shucks! Looks like the Eastern Hemisphere comes out ahead in the fruit department by sheer quantity. So the Eastern and Western hemisphere are tied.

But where the Eastern Hemisphere has cinammon, cloves and other boring spices, the Western Hemisphere has:

Vanilla

And most importantly

With those added, the Western Hemisphere wins by a mile.
