There’s a lot of people who would do this job for free, but Candy Funhouse, an online candy store, is hiring a taste tester — the world’s first chief candy officer — at a salary of $100,000 a year. Job duties for the first chief candy officer include taste-testing more than 3,500 products a month, giving the “CCO (Chief Candy Officer) Stamp of Approval,” leading the “FUNhouse” candy strategy and running candy board meetings, among other responsibilities.

You must be 5 years old or older and living in North America to apply. The company says no previous experience is needed but it helps to have an interest in candy, pop culture, and media. The job is work-from-home, but the chief candy officer will have to be based out of Toronto, Canada, or Newark, New Jersey.

Other requirements for the gig include a creative mind, being a natural-born leader, an “obvious” sweet tooth, being fluent in English and, among others, knowing “how to have FUN!”

The deadline to apply is August 31, and “yes, the position does come with an extensive dental plan!” Talk about a sweet gig!
