File this under "Dream Job": Mondelēz International, the company that makes Cadbury, Oreos and many other sweets in the UK, is once again looking for a taste tester, Business Insider reports. The part-time job requires seven and a half hours a week of testing and evaluating chocolate at the company's plant in Reading, a 25-minute train ride from London.

According to last year's job post on LinkedIn, testers must "be able to taste chocolate and cocoa beverage products and give objective and honest feedback," and have "a passion for confectionary and taste buds for detection." (For the record, we have both.)

The job is listed as entry level, so it appears that no professional taste-testing experience is required. But you better be a sugar queen, or you'll burn out quickly.

Chocolate fiends can apply here. Just make sure to call your dentist.
