Buddy The Elf Eats HOW Many Calories At Christmas?

We all need a little perspective every now and again, and if you’re worried about over indulging this festive season we’ve just the thing to make you feel a bit better about it.

It’s a well-known fact that Santa’s elves love sugar, and Buddy the elf certainly can eat a lot of it.

It’s been over a decade since the factual documentary on Buddy, titled Elf, hit our screens, entered our hearts and gave us an insight into what really goes on up there at the North Pole.

There were busy elves, naturally, love, a Grinch and an abundance of candy canes. In fact, thanks to this insightful piece of investigative journalism we learned that the four main food groups of elves are:

  • Candy
  • Candy Canes
  • Candy Corn
  • Syrup

So it’s no surprise that Buddy smothered his spaghetti with syrup at the family dinner table.

After freeze framing much of the documentary to figure out just how many calories our favourite elf actually consumes around the Christmas period, we concluded that Buddy must have one heck of a metabolism.

Why? Because the figure sits at about:

8075 calories*!

And there’s hardly a decent micronutrient in his diet either, or macro for that matter – like, where’s the protein?!
