The sweetest way to earn some extra cash is on offer for those with a sweet tooth. A candy company in Canada is searching for people to taste and review its original creations for the sweet sum of $30 an hour. The company is called Candy Funhouse and it requires "candyologists" to test and provide feedback on its candy and chocolate products. The company currently has a huge range of 3,000 products but is always creating new sweets. The candyologists will be responsible for deciding on 10 new candies that will be part of a new line of Candy Funhouse-branded sweets. Candy Funhouse hopes to establish a global reputation as a quality confectioner.

The successful applicants will need a number of basic requirements and qualifications. The company states on its website: "Candidates should have enthusiasm and eagerness to try confectionery products. We are looking for honest and objective opinions on the products that will be taste tested." They will have to write a brief, two-sentence description for each product tested. Budding candyologists must be "passionate about confectionery," not have any food allergies, be fluent in English and have basic writing skills. They must also be U.S. or Canadian citizens and be willing to work in Ontario. The candyologists will "taste samples objectively" and "consider aspects of taste, texture and quality".
