Spending your workday eating chocolate is a reality for many chocoholics.

The idea of eating chocolate and being paid for it, therefore, would be a dream come true.

And thanks to Mondelēz International, the masterminds behind Cadbury and Milka chocolates and Oreo cookies, that dream is now a reality.

Would you like to become a chocolate taster for Cadbury?

Four roles have opened at the company – one for ‘chocolate and cocoa beverage taster’ and three for ‘chocolate taster’. They’re fully legit positions where you’ll try new products that the company is testing and give your opinion. They’ll take your thoughts into account and use the feedback to improve them.

You need to have ‘a passion for confectionery and taste buds for detection’, be eager to try ‘new and inventive products’, be honest and objective in your opinions, and be able to communicate well with and build good relationships with the other tasters on your panel.

All of the positions are part-time and are paid around £9 an hour, and you’ll be working for around 7.5 hours a week while still getting essentials such as a pension and holidays.

The role involves giving your opinion on new products

They’re based in the UK, specifically in a University of Reading consumer science room where many of the company’s exciting innovations are created.

If you’re keen to apply, you need to submit your CV and motivations for the role by February 16. The interview involves being given 10 chocolate samples to taste – so it’s basically impossible to be nervous for it.

Lick the melted chocolate off your fingers and apply, stat!
