Nutella taste tester
Are you a fan of the hazelnut-cocoa spread known as Nutella? Can you eat a lot of it? Like, really a lot of it? Recently, the makers of the delicious topping were hiring 60 taste-testers to work near their office in Alba, Italy. Sadly, the Ferrero company was hiring Italians only, and at press time, had no plans to expand the offer to other countries. These lucky folks, called “sensory testers” by Ferrero, will begin a three-month training course on Sept. 30, and then 40 of them will be asked to work two days a week on tasting panels. While it’s not exactly clear what they’d be doing — Testing Nutella recipes? Eating it straight out of the jar? Bathing in the stuff? — this is the fantasy job sweet dreams are made of.
