This may be the best job in Australia – if your taste buds can cope

Calling all sweet and sour tooths! This could be your dream job.

Sour Patch Australia is looking for professional taste testers to join its team of Super Sour Taste Testers.

It might sound like a simple job, but be warned – it’s not for the faint-hearted. Applicants are required to eat a lemon without cringing.

“Sour Specialists on the panel will need to prepare for watery eyes and extreme scrunched-up faces from the super ‘sour-then-sweet’ flavour punch,” Ms Calman told News Corp.

“We are currently working on some exciting new sour sensation products that will blow sour fans’ socks off.”

“There are a number of secrets to creating delicious sour-tasting treats and we’re looking for committed fans who can help unlock tastebud tingling combinations.”

Successful applicants will be notified by June 8.
