It remains possible that Musk prefers other cereals at other times of the day, like breakfast, but he didn’t volunteer that information.
But Musk most likely snacks late at night more than most of us, given how little he sleeps.
The person behind the account asking the question, using the name “Ripple Man,” seemed delighted by the reply, tweeting: “This is officially the highlight of my life. Thank you and God bless cinnamon toast crunch!”
The person tweeted again later: “I’m going to print this out on photo paper and in color and having it framed and put on my wall for I to stare at. Merry #Christmas to ME!”
The sweet General Mills cereal, which is shaped like little squares and is flavored with cinnamon, is one of the most popular cereals in the US.
There doesn’t, however, appear to be a ranking of the most popular cereals to eat in the middle of the night.
But Musk has made his love of snacks clear in the past.

The cereal is also something of a meme. The meme-tracking website Know Your Meme notes that a phrase from its commercials, “Why Do Kids Love the Taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?” is used as a meme template.
