If you love candy, this job is for you.  Candy Funhouse in Canada is offering a very sweet gig.

The online retailer of confectionery treats from chocolate bars to gummies and licorice, is hiring for a $78,000 a year ($100,000 Canadian), work-from-home job as its Chief Candy Officer.

Duties include: “leading candy board meetings, being the head taste tester … and all things fun.”

Several thousand candidates have already applied for the position, which was posted on LInkedIn in July, said Chief Executive Officer Jamal Hejazi. He noted that he’s been surprised by the number of “golden ticket” themed applications and the elaborate videos of entire families offering to share the tasting duties and salary.

CNN reported that children as young as five could be offered the job.  The complete story from CNN is available by clicking here.
