General Mills Puts Out New 'Elf' Cereal Inspired by the Movie for the Holidays


General Mills has put out a new cereal for the upcoming holiday season that's inspired by the 2003 movie Elf, which has become a Christmas classic. The cereal contains maple-flavored corn puffs -- which General Mills says is the favorite flavor of Buddy the Elf, Will Ferrell's starring character -- along with pink and green marshmallow trees. The box is decorated with images of Buddy and the Arctic Puffin and Mr. Narwhal, two of Buddy's North Pole friends. People reports that the cereal, which will be available for limited time this holiday season, is already showing up in some stores
