If you love Nutella – and let’s face it, few of us don’t – the maker of the famed Italian chocolate and hazelnut spread has a potential job for you.
The Ferrero company, which makes Nutella, Ferrero Rocher chocolates and other sweet treats, is looking for 60 “sensory judges” who will be paid for tasting its products.
Nutella has such worldwide demand that mini-riots broke out in France in January when discounted containers of the rich spread went on sale. It’s so popular that U.S. discount warehouse club chain Costco started offering its own version this year.
This is the first time Ferrero is recruiting “nonprofessionals” for this oh-so-grueling gustatory work, according to The Local, which reports Italy’s news in English.
The job ad was published by Openjobmetis for Soremartec Italia, which is Ferrero’s research and development company.
There’s just one catch.
You have to be ready, able and willing to relocate to Ferrero’s headquarters in Alba in Italy’s northwest Piedmont region. That’s the area famed for its white truffles, not to mention Barolos, Barbarescos and other fine wines. Read more via usatoday.com.
