How Sweet It Is: Riding in the Candy Cab

by George Bodarky

George Bodarky, WFUV

Hop into Mansoor Khalid’s cab, and you’ll quite literally be in for one sweet ride.  Khalid is the Willy Wonka of the yellow taxi industry.  He fills the back dashboard of his cab with all kinds of sweets – hard candies in the summer, like Skittles and Jolly Ranchers, and chocolates, but, those ONLY in the colder months.

“Because I had a bad experience putting chocolate in the summer...everyone asking me (for) napkins...because they would start melting.”
