Bugles: shaped like a cornucopia or horn of plenty-a symbol of our nations abundance.
Pretzels: arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
Candy Corn: sacrifices of the pilgrim's first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
Nuts or Seeds: promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended 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.

Love this gift. I have seen it around the internet but never made it. I think I might this year.
