This sounds like something out of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  But it IS a real job, and even kids can apply. A website called Candy Funhouse sells candy online.  And they’re looking to hire their first “Chief Candy Officer” with a salary of $100,000 a year, according to CNBC.

Anyone over the age of FIVE can apply, and there’s no previous work experience necessary.  You just have to love candy…be willing to taste-test a ton of it…and have no serious food allergies.

They’re based in Canada, so that’s 100 grand in Canadian dollars, or about $78,000 U.S.  But they say the job can be done remotely. The main job duties are being their “head taste-tester” and deciding which products to carry.

If you, or your child, are interested, you have until the end of August to apply on LinkedIn.  They say it comes with “an extensive dental plan.”
