Best Job Around? Like A Kid In A Candy Shop…Literally!


The company Swizzels have advertised for an official sweet taster! The people who make Love Hearts, Refreshers, Drumsticks lollies have a vacancy for someone to be sweet taster for a year! Is this a good job…or is it a route to false teeth and Diabetes? All I know is that they weren’t short of applicants!
Here is a bit of their job spec:
'a sweet tooth, previous experience eating sweets, finely tuned taste buds, a passion for confectionery, the ability to act like a kid in a sweet shop when at work, an adventurous and creative mind'.

This shouldn’t be too hard now, should it?
