Feb. 13 (UPI) — The British makers of Cadbury chocolates posted job openings online for some crucial positions — chocolate taste-testers.
Mondelez, the company behind Cadbury as well as Oreo cookies and other snack foods, posted openings on its website for three “chocolate tasters” and one “chocolate and cocoa beverage taster.”
The postings for the part-time jobs, which start at $12.50 an hour, state candidates should have “a passion for confectionery and taste buds for detection” as well as an “eagerness to try new and inventive products.”
“No experience is required as full training will be provided to develop your taste buds and the specific vocabulary required to communicate your opinions,” the job listings state. “You will work in our dedicated sensory booths and discussion rooms, alongside approximately 11 panelists and a panel leader; sharing opinions and collaborating with others to reach an agreement on taste.”
