Bugles: Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our Nation’s abundance.
Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by the founders of our country.
Candy Corn: Sacrifices of the Pilgrim’s first winter. Food was so scarce that the settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn per day.
Nut or Seeds: Promise of a future harvest, one will reap only if seeds are planted and tended to with diligence.
Dried Fruits: Harvest gifts of our bountiful land.
M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.
Hershey’s Kiss: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.

What a great idea for co-workers and to place one at each family member’s seat at Thanksgiving.

Last year I found one that was like a chex mix and the saying was more religious. Does anyone know of this or remember what it might be called?

I am going to make this and see if it would be good in a mason jar for a gift. I think making a tag for it with the meaning would be sweet. Thank you for the great idea and the info.
