I wanted to know what a chocolate taster’s salary was after I saw this video about a team of professional chocolate tasters:[Video no longer exists]
But, before all you chocoholics jump for joy and exclaim that you wish you had a job like that, just take a minute to consider a few things:
- They have to be very technical about it – they are not just eating lots of different bars of chocolate all day and simply saying “I like that one” or “I prefer this one to that one”. No, they have to assess the chocolate against a list of criteria and fill in computerized forms.
- They don’t swallow – they don’t actually eat the chocolate bars. They spit them out after they have finished evaluating them. While this means they are less likely to put on weight, it might take something away from the chocolate eating experience.
- They may be prone to tooth decay – if you spend all day with chocolate in your mouth, you are likely to get dental problems. Maybe they brush their teeth several times a day?
Anyway, to answer my original question: what is the salary of a chocolate taster? Well, I had a look on this article by the Telegraph, and they say Green & Blacks are offering £35,000 GBP per year, which is roughly $54,000 USD.
Would you consider chocolate tasting to be your dream job? Or do you have a different dream job such as the ones mentioned in my previous article, 10 Dream Job Ideas? Let me know in the comments section below.
