Elon Musk is “super, super serious” about his plans to start a new Company that makes candies and he is sure that “it’s going to be amazing”. He tweeted on May 5th about his current plan of action. He even tweeted about a possible name for his candy company.

The tweeter users were all keen to know about his ideas in detail and it was clear that they even expected it to be as glorious as his Tesla cars and SpaceX Exploration Company of which he is the CEO.

According to various sources, this thought of starting a confection business might be Elon’s way of giving back to the business tycoon Warren Buffett. This sudden brainwave of Musk may have its source from a little unpleasant tit-for-tat between Elon Musk and Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor. It apparently started when Musk sometime earlier in the week, in an earnings call, criticized “moat”, a term coined by Warren Buffett to describe the competitive advantage of a company. Musk called “moats” as ‘lame’.

Buffett later retorted back, “Elon may turn things upside down in some areas. I don’t think he would want to take us on Candy.” Warren Buffett is the current CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, owner of See’s Candies. Elon tweeted back that, “Then I’m going to build a moat and fill it w candy. Warren B will not be able to resist investing! Berkshire Hathaway kryptonite…”

All this may have led to Elon tweet about starting his Candy Company. There have been quite a few interesting comments on Twitter as well which can in a way be called as the demand of all his fans. One of the tweets said, “My candy better be air-dropped from a space station or I want my money back.”

So it is basically hard to say whether Musk is serious about it or not. His fans are hoping hard with their fingers crossed.
