The makers of the delicious hazelnut chocolate spread known as Nutella are hiring 60 new employees in what could quite possibly be the world’s best job.
(1/2) #OPINION: The Ferrero Company is hiring 60 people to taste-test its Nutella products. It's not going to be an "easy" job. According to the posting, you'll have to go through three months of training to learn the proper chocolate terminology and improve your senses. pic.twitter.com/FBcGHPxD3Q

Nutella’s parent company Ferrero have posted an ad looking for 60 regular consumers to taste cacao, hazelnut and chocolate products, according to ABC News.
However, there’s just one catch if you get picked for the job – a move to Italy! The position requires taste-testers to relocate to Ferrero’s headquarters in Alba where they will undergo a three month training course scheduled to start in September. The training will sharpen the recruits sense of taste and smell and teach them the correct terminology to describe what they are tasting and smelling.
After the initial training period the 60 volunteers will be whittled down to 40 who will then work part-time on two taste-testing panels.
