It’s no secret that some jobs are undeniably more fun than others — and one that’s just been announced may really take the biscuit.
A UK company is hiring an official cookie taster.
Yes, that means being paid to eat crumbly, chocolatey baked goods.
Maryland Cookies is looking for someone to spend a day working at its Innovation Centre in Edinburgh, Scotland — and by working, they mean tasting cookies.
The “Official Cookie Taster” will have the hardship of munching their way through Maryland’s entire product range, including some new creations which aren’t even available to buy yet.
They’ll also get to create their own flavor to enjoy with friends and family (if they don’t snaffle them all on the way home, that is).
What’s more, they’ll be paid £350 ($440) for a day’s work which works out at £50 ($63) an hour.
The successful applicant will get to choose a date and time to suit them, and they’ll get to bring a friend, too.
The job is only open to UK and Ireland residents, but transport and travel costs will be covered.
To apply for the role and find out more, visit the Airtasker website, click “Make an offer,” and leave a comment explaining what you would do for a Maryland Cookie.
“The crazier the better,” according to the company. “The applicant who convinces Maryland that they’re the UK and Ireland’s biggest cookie fan will be appointed as the official cookie taster.”
Applications are open until July 26, but if you aren’t successful? Well that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
