Each ingredient in this snack mix symbolizes something associated with the Harvest Season (Thanksgiving)

  • Bugles Brand Corn Snacks - represents a cornucopia, a horn of plenty.
  • Pretzels - represents arms folded in thanks and prayer.
  • 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.
  • Dried or Candy Fruits - Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.
  • Peanuts and/or Sunflower Seeds - seeds represent the potential of a bounteous harvest for the next season if they are planted and well tended.
  • M&M's: 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.
