Good News: A Sweet Ride in New York City’s Candy Cab

Mansoor Khalid’s Candy Cab may look like a regular New York taxi on the outside, but step inside and you’ll find a candy lover’s paradise. The cab is filled with all-you-can-eat free sweets: hard candies in the summer, chocolate in the winter. But no matter when you take a ride, you’re welcome to take as much as you want. Khalid started filling his cab with candies after his life took a sad turn. In 2010, his son was born with a congenital heart defect. Whenever he visited the hospital, Khalid would bring coffee to the doctors and nurses, becoming known as “coffee man.” He says he liked being able to lift people’s spirits with small offerings, so when his son passed away, Khalid decided he wanted to continue to make people happy. That’s how the candy cab idea was born. Click here to learn more about this cool cab in NYC!
