This is one sweet offer.

A Canadian company is looking to pay people to try their candy   and rate it. And the best part is,   the job is   remote.

The  Candy Funhouse  is an online candy store that is seeking full-time and part-time workers willing to try out, and honestly review, their candies and chocolates in a position they call a "candyologist."

"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," the listing says.

"Candidates will be responsible for tasting and reviewing from the 3000 products we currently carry."

The role is primarily going to be selecting candy for the company's first ever Candy Funhouse brand line. The candyologists will help select 10 new and original candy creations by narrowing their selections from hundreds   of possible options, according to the company.

If eating candy for a living seems too good to be true, the price is even better. The part-time position is 15 hours a week at $30 an hour and the full-time spot is 40 hours at the same rate.

No experience is required and all applications have to be in by February 15 -- the day after Valentine's Day.

A DREAM JOB!!!  I'm applying.  The job is remote - another article about it makes it clear that the job is to be done at home.  My arguments will be that I've had more than 80 years experience eating candy, and candy not only from Canada but from other countries as well, and that in the event that the company has in mind the possibility of exporting its products to China where there are 1.4 billion "sweet-toothed" consumers, it would be wise to hire me.

have to admit i have a sweet tooth , but this has DIE-BEETUS written all over it for me 

it also reminds me of when my son was little and we ran out of the chocolate milk mix( he liked to take and eat a spoonful dry, and he would down half a can if allowed) and he spotted the hershey baking chocolate powder.. yep he learned with that first spoonful.

Dark chocolate is my favorite. 

Not a bad job, but you have to make sure you watch your weight and your teeth.

I can watch my teeth when I put them in a glass at night. LOL   Weight and diabetes could be a problem, but it's not necessary to eat the whole chocolate bar for a taste test - a couple of pieces would be enough. I do eat about a one inch square of dark chocolate every day but halve it and let the pieces dissolve slowly in my mouth without chewing them.

Ha!, no I still have all my choppers.

I don’t eat a lot of sweets, but when I do, it’s a piece of dark chocolate.

I've got over 55 years of experience and one particular item on my resume is my mother used to make candy at Christmas. She had a place where she would buy a large slab of chocolate and she would cut off parts of the slab, melt it down and create candies like peanut butter cups, Almond Joys, peanut and raisin clusters, chocolate covered cherries, and Clark Bars.

Do they ship the candy to you?

Since it's a job to be done at home, I assume they must, but maybe there are distance limits due to cost.  I guess they wouldn't put the candy on a "Slow Boat To China".  LOL.

I don't care for stale chocolate. We got a bad batch of Ghiardelli one day and I got a little tummy upset

Yeah, when the chocolate starts to get a white coat it's time to throw it out.  Also if the jelly beans, jujubes get to be hard toothbreaikers the report won't be very good.
