'Tis the season to ... make festive, animal-shaped pasta? According to IKEA, yes.

The Swedish retailer already debuted its holiday home collection and even surprised us with a new delightful/weird wrapping paper. Turns out IKEA has another trick up its sleeve: elk-shaped pasta for you and the whole family to enjoy. The organic, one-pound bag of wheat pasta is called Bästisar. The product description includes the line: "We bet you haven't tried pasta the Swedish way – in the shape of elks!" Is there non-Swedish elk-shaped pasta somewhere out there we didn't know about? Are there other holiday-themed shapes coming soon?

Although, we have to admit, they look pretty classy in this overhead shot.

The elk pasta currently goes for $2.99 a box, sleigh bells not included.
