Son of A Nutcracker, General Mills Is Releasing Elf Cereal For The Holidays

The beloved movie Elf is now a cereal, thanks to General Mills, and only cotton-headed ninny muggins won’t be trying it.

According to Buddy the Elf, there are four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. That last one inspired the new cereal, since we all know that Buddy loves maple syrup, especially on his spaghetti. The festive cereal is made of maple-flavored corn puffs and green and red holiday tree marshmallows.

The limited-edition Elf Cereal will be on shelves in time for the holidays. It’ll be available at grocery retailers nationwide in a mid-size ($2.50) and family-size ($3.99) boxes.
