If you have a penchant for dessert, then you should consider applying for the world’s sweetest job: a chocolate taster.
If it sounds too good to be true, don’t worry — it’s not (mostly). Mondelēz International, the company that makes Oreos, Cadbury and Chips Ahoy, posted the ad on its official careers page. And it won’t be limited to just food — you’ll be tasting some drinks as well. The official title for the job is Chocolate and Cocoa Beverage Taster.
You’ll need to be based in or around Reading, England and your chocolate consumption is limited to just 7.5 hours a week for the part-time job. But as long as you have a “passion for confectionery and taste buds for detection” and are comfortable dishing out honest feedback, the job could be yours. Plus you’ll get to work with 11 panelists and a panel leader in what Mondelēz calls “sensory rooms.”
Those eager for the chance to get to work should hurry up and apply. Mondelēz says it’ll close the application once the posting receives “sufficient application numbers.”
