Elon Musk Plans to Start Candy Company

Elon Musk took to Twitter to criticize Warren Buffett's investment philosophy, and threatened on May 5 to compete directly with one of the Berkshire Hathaway chairman's most famous businesses, See's sweets.

Musk launched The Boring Company in 2016 to alleviate traffic jams with a system of high-speed underground shortcuts. "It's ridiculous. Warren does not intend to build an actual moat".

It started when the Tesla CEO said companies don't need "moats" around their business during his company's first-quarter earnings call last week.

So what to make of Elon Musk's latest whimsical Twitter-based business plan?

This could be seen as a direct challenge to Warren Buffet's iconic See's sweets company which has been owned by the legendary investor for 4 decades.

Musk was on a roll of sorts and continued making multiple posts on the topic, to fish for ideas as well as to troll fellow billionaire Warren Buffet.

And then: "Saying you like "moats" is just a nice way of saying you like oligopolies".

"Elon may turn things upside down in some areas".

As IFLScience were quick to note, a cyborg dragon would be something requiring mechanical body parts as well as organic ones, so if Musk really were to devise this dragon there would need to be organic material in it, which could prove hard.

As for whether the investing duo will respond to Musk, it's unlikely they even took notice of his tweets: While Buffett has a Twitter account, he has tweeted exactly nine times, and not since the 2016 Berkshire Hathaway meeting two years ago.

Do you think Musk is being serious? On the call, he got a chance to pass those questions onto Musk when the exec, bored with the demands of high-level analysts, remarked "We're going to go to YouTube".

Eventually, Musk began crowdsourcing ideas for his hypothetical candy company, and his followers began suggesting all manner of products for him to develop, from healthy candy to candy that doesn't cause cavities.
