Although Warren Buffett is mostly known for his investing genius, his love of sweet things like candy and soda is absolutely no secret. In fact, Berkshire Hathaway actually purchased See’s Candy Shops in 1972, a year after Buffett first tasted the confectionery’s delicious chocolate. To this day, Buffett still owns See’s Candy and the company has expanded and offers some of the best sweets.
So, if you’ve ever wondered what candies the Oracle of Omaha likes to indulge in sometimes, then look no further! Here are five of Warren Buffett’s favorite sweets from See’s Candy:
1. Chocolate Walnut Fudge
This sweet, creamy and decadent fudge is filled with large walnut pieces. It is Warren’s top choice for sweets from See’s. You can buy a pound of the homemade fudge for $20 here.
2. Peanut Brittle
Buffett loves nuts, and this crunchy peanut goodness is a great go-to. There are also sugar free options available, but the Oracle of Omaha tends to prefer the real deal. You can pick up 10 ounces of it for $11 or 1 pound, 8 ounces for $20 here.
3. Vanilla Walnut Fudge
Much like the chocolate walnut fudge, this sweet confection features large walnut pieces, and tastes slightly more nutty. you can buy a pound of it for $20 here.
4. See’s Awesome Peanut Brittle Bars
Peanut brittle is, by its crumbly nature, a little messy to eat. However, these individually wrapped bars (which are covered in chocolate!) make taking it with you simple. Buffett is, of course, always on the go so these just make sense. You can buy a box of 8 for $11 here.
5. Bridge Mix
Warren Buffett is a huge fan of the game Bridge, and as this candy is thought to be similar to the kinds of sweets often offered at Bridge tournaments, it’s no surprise that it’s a favorite of the Oracle of Omaha. It’s a variety of chocolates and sweets. You can buy a pound for $20 here.
