  Warren Buffett has invested in Apple, Coca-Cola, Amazon, Bank of
  America, and other household names. Yet See's Candies, a
  California seller of boxed chocolates, is the investment guru's
  "dream business."

  Buffett has frequently applauded See's since buying it in 1972.
  He and his investment partner Charlie Munger  have "earned
  exceptional returns and had a good time," he wrote in his
  1991
  letter to shareholders. "We would love to increase our
  economic interest in See's, but we haven't found a way to add to
  a 100% holding," he wrote in
  his 1994 letter.

  The so-called Sage of Omaha's has praised See's outsized
  financial returns, modest capital needs, economic moat, quality
  personnel, and the chocolates themselves. We look at each aspect
  of the company below.
