Candy, pies and cakes galore, Scout Elves love eating sweets, snacks and more! You can often find the Scout Elves visiting Mrs. Claus’ Sweet Shop™ to whip up delicious desserts exclusively available at the North Pole, but did you know sweet treats are only one of many foods the elves munch on? If your little one wonders what their elf fills his or her tummy with when it begins to rumble, read on to get the delicious details about what Scout Elves eat.
When your Scout Elf sees your family enjoying hamburgers, pizzas or pancakes, they can’t wait to join the fun! Although they couldn’t possibly eat a big piece of pizza like you can, they are able to create smaller versions of their favorite foods that are perfectly sized for themselves. Freshly baked mini pepperoni pizzas or elf-sized hamburgers and hotdogs with special North Pole twists are some of the tiny eats elves love to make.
Scout Elves are incredibly active year-round—how else would Christmas happen every year? Although they don’t stray from their sweet tooth very often, sometimes elves like to rely on nutritious, “real world” foods to give them the extra energy they need for their merrymaking missions and Christmastime flights. Crisp apples, leafy green salads and even snow berries—a special fruit grown only at the North Pole—all occasionally become a part of the elves’ well-balanced diet.
You may have heard the rumor that elves love sweets, and it happens to be 100% true! What you may not know is that many of the sweets elves eat are exclusive North Pole foods with a dash of Christmas magic, including special cereals made by Mrs. Claus and gummy fruity treats concocted at the North Pole. Sometimes they try to adapt top secret dessert recipes from Mrs. Claus’ Sweet Shop™ into human-friendly foods like melt-in-your-mouth caramel crunch cookies and a marvelous mix of sweets called Christmas Trail Mix so you can try variations of the special North Pole foods they eat every day!
Just like you, elves cannot survive on food alone! When it comes time to wash down a meal, elves drink a lot of the same beverages as you: a cold glass of milk with their chocolate chip cookies, freshly squeezed orange juice or even North Pole snow melted to make a glass of water. Warm apple cider is a popular choice due to the frigid temperatures at the North Pole, and hot cocoa is practically its own food group! On the other hand, elves also drink sweets you probably wouldn’t dream of like melted chocolate or even maple syrup—talk about sickeningly sweet!
Since Christmas is undoubtedly the elves’ favorite time of the year, they are always searching for fun ways to get in the holiday spirit! Foods that resemble Christmas objects like snowmen made from marshmallows, cupcakes with strawberry Santa hats on top or fruit assembled to look like a wreath are a few festive favorites.
Now that you know all of the yummy foods elves enjoy, head over to Mrs. Claus’ Sweet Treats to find more new recipes you can make at home!
