For most, the idea of eating chocolate and being paid for it sounds too good to be true, but thanks to the mastermind behind Cadbury and Oreo, Mondelez International, all those chocoholic dreams can now be realised (and devoured).

Four new paid roles have opened up - one "Chocolate and Cocoa Beverage Taster" and three " Chocolate Tasters".

But before you go putting all your chocolate eggs into one basket, all jobs are based in Reading, England, - minor details, right?

According to the advertisement, Mondelez "seeks Sensory Panelists - Confectionery to join close knit, friendly team".

No experience is required as full training will be provided - we wonder how extensive this "training" is? 

To qualify for the role, "a passion for confectionery and taste buds for detection' are required, and "honesty and objectivity when it comes to giving an opinion."

So, does this sound like you? 

The part-time position asks for 7.5 hours per week and you will be working closely with a team of panelists to collaborate on a new taste. This new job search comes after an overwhelming response 24 hours after they posted their original ad.

According to The Sun, there were 1,500 applications in the first 24 hours with 6,000 in total coming through from across the globe, including Australia.

So chocoholics, if you're already partaking in unpaid testing from the comforts of your own home then there's still time to jump on board the offer, but you better be quick as applications close next Friday February 16.
