Freshly-baked Oreo cookies pass along a conveyor belt at a Kraft Foods' factory in Suzhou, Jiangsu province May 30, 2012. Investment may be powering the Chinese economy but experiments like Oreo's gum cookie, a cookie with a glob of gum sandwiched neatly between a pair of Oreo's iconic dark chocolate biscuits instead of the creamy white "stuff", which for better or worse never made it to store shelves, are a reminder that consumption is rising sharply. That means it is vital for food companies to get the right products into the market, particularly with demand dimming in the United States and Europe. Picture taken May 30, 2012.

A gym package is not listed as a benefit on the job posting, but applicants should still inquire.

Mondelēz International, the maker of Oreos and Cadbury Eggs, is searching for a chocolate taster. It’s a part-time gig designed to help the company make decisions about the taste of its products. And if the deal weren’t sweet enough, applicants don’t need any prior experience. In fact, they need to meet only five basic requirements to qualify for the position:

  • Have a passion for candy.
  • Be honest.
  • Be eager to try new things.
  • Friendly.
  • Be able to speak English.

The job is based in Reading, England, where applicants would report to one of the company’s food labs from 12:15pm to 2:45pm Tuesday through Thursdays.

“Chocolate tasters are key in helping Mondelēz perfect and launch an entirely new product all over the world,” the posting reads.
