The Ferrero company, which makes the delicious chocolate hazelnut spread, is looking to employ 60 people to taste-test its products.

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.

Ferrero has long had these sensory judges but the recent job posting on Openjobmetis was advertised specifically for regular folks outside the company after being exclusively held by company insiders for years.

Growing up and growing older has worked well for the music icon, who says she's happier now than she was when she was younger. They don't have to be politically correct, as long as they're authentic, respectful, compassionate, and empathetic.

So, put down your personalised Nutella jar and find out how you could be gulping down the stuff and getting paid for it.

The 60 lucky candidates will relocate to the company's headquarters in Alba, a town located in Italy's Piedmont region and famous for its selection of white truffles.

The new hires would undergo a three-month training program that would include developing their taste and smell senses, before just 40 people are placed in two tasting panels, The Local explains. The finalists will be offered part-time positions that would allow them to seek other work on the side. No experience is required but naturally, hopefuls are expected to be chocolate and hazelnut lovers. Ferrero asks only that applicants suffer from no food allergies and feel comfortable using a computer.
