Mars, Malteasers And Snickers Are Hiring Professional Chocolate Tasters

2 min read

Time to quit your day job. 

I love my job. But every now and again another job comes along that makes me question what I’m doing with my life. 

It always involves food, specifically chocolate. 

Now is one of those times because Mars, Malteasers and Snickers are hiring professional chocolate tasters. 

This is it- this is my calling. And it can be yours too if you don’t mind eating sweets for a living.

After you apply, you will be put through a rigorous interview process where you will have to rate different foods on a scale from 1 to 15 for how sweet, savoury, bitter or salty they are.

Doesn’t sound too rigorous to me… 

If you’re successful, then you’ll get six-months of intensive taste training to become an official chocolate taster. 

Then you enter the big leagues, my friend, because you’ll get to asses a wide range of products. 

Linda Lopez, senior sensory manager at Mars Wrigley, said:

“We are thrilled to be recruiting for our next group of Chocolate Tasters. We encourage anyone that has an interest in the textures and tastes of chocolate to apply – we'll train you in the rest!”

Interest in chocolate? For sure.

But there’s a catch (because when is there not): the job is in Berkshire, UK and is only a temporary role. You’ll be expected to work 12 hours, four days a week and only get paid about £9.76 - £10.25 ($18) an hour.

Not a lot of money…but I would cop it. They’d basically be paying me in chocolate anyway.
