Your dream job has arrived; Mars Wrigley is looking for a candy taste tester to help this summer.

The catch? You’ll have to move to Chicago.


According to FOX News, the confectionery intern will go behind the scenes at manufacturing sites and taste test new flavors of chocolates and candy. The selected person will even make their own batch of chewing gum in the company’s research and development labs.

Not only will the lucky person chosen get paid, but they’ll also receive a year’s worth of candy.

Ideal candidates should be:
  • Committed to effecting change in the community; previous experience in running programs or events preferred
  • A strong entrepreneur and self-starter, preferably someone who isn’t afraid to ring every doorbell in every neighborhood on Halloween
  • As passionate about Chicago as a Sox fan who heads to Wrigley for the cross-town classic
  • Able to distinguish between the chocolate used in SNICKERS vs. M&M’s, name all five fruity flavors from the Skittles rainbow, and prove they can keep a potted peppermint plant alive for at least eight weeks
  • Demonstrate the will power to write about and photograph candy without eating it before the work is complete

Applications are being accepted until June 1. To apply, visit the company’s website.
