"Harvest Blessing Mix"

Each ingredient in this snack mix symbolizes something associated with the Harvest Season [Thanksgiving]
*Bugles - represents a cornucopia, a horn of plenty.
*Pretzels - represents arms folded in thanks and prayer.
*Candy Corn/Corn Nuts - during the first Winter, the pilgrims were each allotted only 5 kernels of corn per day becasue food was so scarce.
*Dried/Candy Fruits - Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.
*Peanuts/Sunflower Seeds - seeds represent the potential of a bountiful harvest for the next season if they are planted and well tended.
