Whatever you’ve always imagined your dream job to be, shove it aside to make room for this fantasy gig: a paid chocolate taster – for the company behind Cadbury, Milka, Toblerone, Cote D’Or and more.

Mondelez International has placed an ad online to fill the role at its research facility in Wokingham, England, so you’d have to move to the U.K. But … worth it.

Because the part-time job’s “main responsibilities,” per the job posting, include “be able to taste chocolate products and give objective and honest feedback,” “work within a team of panelists to share opinions and collaborate to reach an agreement on taste,” and “use a clearly defined vocabulary to describe products and aid in the discrimination between products.”

Doesn’t sound so difficult.

You’ll also need to be consistent, ethical, legally responsible, professional and conduct yourself with integrity. Also pretty doable.

As a Chocolate Taster, you’ll help Mondelez fine-tune new products, working in a team of about 12 Tasters, plus a leader, to make a very lucky 13.

And the best part? No experience necessary! The company will provide a complete course of training to help you hone your tasting skills and learn the required vocab.

All you really need is “a passion for confectionary and taste buds for detection,” “honesty when it comes to giving opinion,” and an eagerness to try new things – plus “a communicative personality” and “a firm grasp of the English Language.”

Alas, if you have an allergy to gluten, nuts or dairy, this isn’t the job for you.

Otherwise, you can dream all you want about the cocoa-coated rewards, which include a generous pay and benefits package.

All that and heaps of chocolate? What more could you ask for in a job?
