Candy Funhouse, a Canadian candy company, announced it is looking to recruit its chief candy officer, which is actually a candy taster, in simpler words. This is a dream job because the company is offering almost $100,000 salary for the lucky applicant.

What’s more, the CCO can do his or her job while just sitting on a couch since the work is only to taste different candy products. The great offer is not only open to adults, but kids can apply as well.

In fact, in its announcement on social media, Candy Funhouse said that the job is open to ages 5 and up, and parents can apply on behalf of their children. Applicants can try their luck with the sweetest job opening so far at Candy Funhouse.

As per Fox Business, this is the first time that the online confectionery store is hiring a chief candy officer. The very attractive job was also listed on LinkedIn with the $100,000 annual salary detail. With this generous offer, the company is obviously not cutting back on salary.

It was explained that the chief candy officer would be tasting more than 3,500 different candies every month. Based on the feedback, Candy Funhouse will decide if the sweets are worthy of being sold under its brand.

Candy Funhouse is currently the largest online candy store in Canada, based in Toronto. Its store sells many of the favorite treats and sweets such as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Kit Kat bars, Laffy Taffy, and Sour Patch Kids.

In any case, there are eligibility requirements to be considered for the CCO post. The company said the applicant must be residing in North America and can work remotely or in its Toronto or Newark, New Jersey office.

Candy Funhouse will also put the candidate in extensive palate training to asses their sense of taste. They must not have any form of food allergies as well and with the thousands of candies to be tasted, the company told the future CCO not to worry because it will provide dental care as well.

"Here at Candy Funhouse we’re all about FUN, and who better to set our FUNhouse strategy than someone that is a real candy fanatic!" Candy Funhouse’s chief Jamal Hejazi, said in a statement. "Whoever lands this position better be ready for the ride of their lives, and to have chocolate flowing through their veins and I am thrilled for all the candy adventures we have planned!"
