TV made me stupid, part one

Well, something made me stupid, because we missed entire rounds of questions this week. Even the stuff we got right, we were guessing. Still, so was everyone else, because we were only five points out of first going into the final question, which we once again missed. Here's the first half of our misses; I'll put up part two early next week.

1. According to First for Women magazine, eating what kind of candy can help reduce stress?
2. From what country did the guitar get its name?
3. Who gave rapper Snoop Dogg the nickname "Snoop?"
4. Denzel Washington graduated from Fordham University with a B.A. in what field of study?
5. What birds have been trained to herd sheep?
6. Where does natural vanilla flavoring come from?
7. Tiger Woods made his PGA tour debut in the Nissan Open at what age?

I think number 7 is 21 because he won the Masters the first time in 1997, but debuted the year before that and he's about 5 years older than I am.

Number 1 isn't chocolate is it?

Number 6 is more specific than vanilla beans I'm guessing.

1. Peppermint (we said chocolate, too)
2. Greece. Or Greek. The question might actually have been which language.
3. His mother. We mis-heard this question as "which rapper gave him his name," which pretty much guaranteed we'd miss it.
4. Journalism
5. Geese
6. The answer was "orchids," but I think "vanilla beans" is correct. The vanilla bean is the seed pod of the vanilla orchid, so if the question was "what kind of plant does natural vanilla flavoring come from," that would have been okay.
7. 16 (his first Tour event was not the year he turned pro)
