Yup, you read that right! Would you want to get paid to be a taste tester for Nutella?
The owners of Nutella is looking to hire sixty people to be on the panel to taste test their product. Not too shabby. I would do it if I had the time to fly out to Italy of course!
According to Fox 5 Atlanta, "The spread is manufactured by Ferrero — which is hiring 60 “sensory judges” to try food items in a part-time capacity at its main offices in Alba, Italy, The Local reported last month. The job listing, posted in Italian, says that Ferrero’s research company Soremartec Italia Srl is looking for people interested in learning “how to taste cocoa, hazelnut and other semi-finished sweet products.” The recruits would undergo a three-month training program that would include developing their taste and smell senses, before just 40 people are placed in two tasting panels, The Local explains."
Who doesn't love Nutella? I would taste test that stuff on everything! Go have some Nutella on me. Oh, and if you apply for this job, let me know what you think!
