Warren Buffett is about to issue his 50th annual letter to investors in his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway.

Mr. Buffett's observations are always a highlight of the financial year, but fun fact: Despite being 84 years of age and one of the richest men in the world, he apparently eats like a six-year-old.

He has five Cokes a day — sometimes, they're Cherry Cokes. He also indulges in Utz's Potato Stix. And for breakfast? Chocolate ice cream.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
