A man earns up to $55,000 a year in cash by selling candy on the New York subway.

Alex 'Tracks' McFarland, from New York City, plies his trade on the city's subway system and usually takes home around $150 a day.

He said he started doing it at the age of 11, not because he had to but because he wanted to earn his own money.

With his 13 years of experience behind, Tracks is now one of the candy kings of the public transportation system.

His box of goodies caters to a variety of tastes, jobs.aol.com reports.

Peanut M&Ms is his biggest seller but for the healthy eaters there are trail mix bars.

For gummy fans there are Welch's Fruit Snacks and 'for people who claim they don't eat candy' he's got Famous Amos chocolate chip and shortbread.

These M&Ms, I take care of my family with this,' he says with a smile.

'Tracks began peddling candy to get himself out of 'the hood.'

Why are they clowns? Except for the fact that the dvds may be bootlegs?

I'm not knocking anyone for their hustle. I was just making a point of the stuff you see on the subway every day. And yes some of the people who get on are dressed like clowns. :winking0071:

Too bad a tool shed-sized apartment in New York that is more rat than lumber by volume costs $60,000 a year.
