$78K For Job of Tasting Candy Products
Someone with an appetite for sugary treats and a keen sense of opportunity might find success in this position.
As a Chief Candy Officer, you will earn $78,000 at Candy Funhouse, an online retailer of chocolate bars, candies, and other confections.
A work-from-home option is available if that is not enough. At the very least, you must be at least 5 years old.
Those with weak hearts or stomachs should avoid this. More than 3,500 goods a month will be tested by the chief candy officer, who will also act as the top taste tester.
The job was advertised on LinkedIn a few weeks ago.
“Do you love all things candy and chocolate? Are you passionate about confectionary treats and exploring unreleased and existing products? If so, this is the PERFECT position for you!” LinkedIn has a description of the position.
Jamal Hejazi, the company’s CEO, said he was shocked by the volume of “golden ticket” themed applications and the elaborate videos of entire families agreeing to share the tasting chores and pay.
According to CNN, Candy Funhouse is run by a group of siblings in their 20s and 30s who grew up in the Toronto region and whose parents had doughnut shops and a restaurant.
Formed in 2018, by my brother Mo (a candyhead) and my mother (no. 2),” Hejazi told Reuters, adding that his own younger siblings had also worked for the company since then.
The position of Chief Candy Officer, according to the LinkedIn ad, permits the employee to work from either the company’s Toronto, Canada, headquarters or its Newark, New Jersey, office.
Advertisement for Candy Funhouse states, “Being the Chief Candy Officer at Candy Funhouse is more than just fun and games; it is serious candy business.“The candidate will be put through extensive palate training and much more. The Chief Candy Officer should put fun at the forefront of their daily routine.”
Nearly 6,500 people have applied for the post, according to NPR. The deadline for applications is August 31. It is not necessary to have any prior knowledge.
