Eat chocolate, get paid: The people that make Oreo and Cadbury need a taster

They will pay you to taste chocolate.

Here's the job description for chocolate and cocoa beverage taster at Mondelez International – makers of Cadbury, Chips Ahoy and Oreos: "Be able to taste chocolate and cocoa beverage products and give objective and honest feedback."

That's right. You can get paid to consume chocolate products and tell people what you think about them.

And yes.

There is a current job opening.


Mondelez International is hiring one of these chocolate and cocoa beverage tasters. Here's a full list of their brands, which includes all the Cadbury chocolates (like Creme Eggs!), Chips Ahoy, Dentyne, Halls, Honey Maid, Nabisco, Nilla Wafers, Nutter Butter, Oreo, Philadelphia, Sour Patch Kids, Tang, Toblerone, Triscuits, Trident and Wheat Thins.

It's only a part-time gig right now, 12:15-2:45 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. And the job is at the company's R&D facility on the Whiteknights campus at University of Readings – that's outside London. This isn't a local Minnesota job.

But hey, look at the "key responsibilities" for the job:

Whoever lands it will work with 11 panelists and a panel leader, mainly in discussion rooms and sensory booths.

They're only taking applications until they've gotten "sufficient numbers," so if you're looking for a part-time job thousands of miles away from Minnesota that lets you eat candy ... well, get to it.
