Tasting Nutella all day is suddenly a real job.
If ever there was proof that collective prayer and wish power can really move mountains, let this be it: Nutella is hiring taste testers, and yes, they’re paying a living wage for the world’s greatest job. Talk about permanently great weekends, but we’re pretty sure you’ll need to work extra hard to balance those calories out. You can obviously try these fab summer hikes.
Ferrero, the parent brand of Nutella, is looking for 60 “sensory judges” to give honest feedback on the taste, texture, appearance, and smell of its products. You’ve been waiting your whole life for this, obviously. The only job requirements are that you’re an adult, legally able to work, have a deep love of chocolate and hazelnuts, and be willing to travel to the official Ferrero lab in Alba, Italy. If you’re wondering, it’s a quaint town in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, and known for all around good food — not just Nutella.
“We are looking for people who would like to learn how to taste cocoa, hazelnut grains and other semi-finished sweet products,” a translation of the job description reads. “A paid training course (starting in September and lasting 3 months) will aim to educate the sense of smell and taste and improve the ability to express in words what will be perceived with the tasting of semi-finished products.”
At the end of the training course, those who are fit for the job will be qualified for a long-term gig with only a part-time commitment. Tasting Nutella only requires two hours per day, twice a week.
If you’re interested in being a Nutella taste tester, you can apply for the role here. We’re rooting for you.
