Meal delivery service HelloFresh will be offering a special limited-edition meal kit this Christmas inspired by the 2003 film "Elf." 

The Buddy The Elf Spaghetti box contains the ingredients to make a spaghetti dish similar to the one that Buddy The Elf cooks in the movie.

In the film, Buddy, played by Will Ferrell, explains that elves have four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup. 

In an attempt to bond with his biological father and stepmother, Buddy makes breakfast for his new family using many of those key food groups.

The kits are a partnership between HelloFresh and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, a press release from HelloFresh noted. 

"While drawing inspiration from the sweet spaghetti dish seen in the movieElf,’ we created a chocolate-forward version that stays true to Buddy the Elf’s dish, incorporating crushed chocolate cereal, various chocolate candies, marshmallows and of course, syrup," said Michelle Doll Olson, HelloFresh culinary development manager, in the release published on Nov. 29.

"With the option to eat with your hands or pair with a bottle of cola, Buddy the Elf Spaghetti is sure to make even South Pole elves smile," said the press release.
