General Mills releases 'Elf' holiday cereal inspired by 2003 movie

The cereal has maple syrup-flavored corn puffs and pink and green marshmallow trees

Now you can eat like an elf.

General Mills has released a new breakfast cereal inspired by the iconic 2003 Christmas movie “Elf,” starring Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf.

Though it doesn’t contain three of the foods from the elves’ four main food groups — “candy, candy canes and candy corns” — the new cereal is, in fact, flavored with real maple syrup.

That’s “Buddy’s favorite flavor,” according to General Mills.
