New York City Candy Cab Driver, Mansoor Khalid, Spreads Sweets & Love To Passengers


Mansoor Khalid, the driver behind the Candy Cab in New York City, hopes to provide a “little happiness to all” by giving his passengers free candy and chocolates along with a personal disco light-filled party in the backseat. Riders can also plug into the cab’s “blasting sound system” with their own devices to play music.


The New York Times recently featured Khalid and writes that he spends $300/month on candy and was inspired to create the Candy Cab after devastatingly losing his young son nearly two years ago. He says, “I like to buy something for people; I feel good. When you give something from your hand, you feel very good when someone gives a smile.” To see photos of some of his lucky riders, take a look at CandyCab on Instagram.

Here’s how you can catch a ride on Candy Cab:
