I swear I really like my job, but every once in awhile an interesting post floats across my desk. Like chocolate taster in England for my favorite brand of chocolate, Cadbury. Or today’s news that Noosa Yoghurt is looking for someone to travel the world as a “professional flavor finder.” Five lucky (or flavor talented, whatever) people will receive $2,000 to “travel to their flavor destination of choice, whether that’s to China for rambutan, Buenos Aires for Rioja, Turkey for pistachios, or California for apricots. Winners also get an all-expenses-paid trip to Noosa HQ in Colorado.” Details and sample photos are now on the Noosa website.
Time reports that the application process is relatively simple: just upload a photo of your desired favorite flavor with a witty caption. Noosa judges will choose the first four tasters, and the public (on Twitter?) will choose the fifth. The deadline is April 20, so apparently I have a few weeks to come up with something brilliant to caption a Pulitzer-worthy photo of Cadbury chocolate.
