8 Treats From The Candy Cane Forest To Eat With Buddy The Elf

There are a few Christmas movies I can never get enough of, and "Elf" is one of them. C'mon, you know the story. Buddy, a human raised by Santa's elves, leaves the North Pole in search of his real father (sorry, Papa Elf), and ends up...well, you should watch it again. We should all watch it again. But this time, let's have something laced with candy canes* when Buddy says one of his famous Elf-isms. You in?

*Why candy canes? Because I can't bring myself to eat spaghetti covered in maple syrup, chocolate syrup, M&M's, sprinkles, marshmallows, and Pop-Tarts. Don't let that stop you, though.
