Live out your childhood dream of getting paid to eat candy!
A US Company Is Looking For A Professional Halloween Candy Tester & Quebecers Can Apply

If you're a candy addict, Halloween in Montreal is one of the highlights of your year — or, more specifically, the day after Halloween, when candy prices are slashed in half.

Now, a U.S. company is offering to pay one lucky person to be their official Halloween candy tester. It's not a trick – Finder Media says they'll be treating the best candy connoisseur to a $500 prize! 

BonusFinder US has opened applications for its Halloween Candy Tester job, and all you have to do is describe why you'd be perfect for the role.

With Halloween right around the corner, we're looking for Halloween Candy Connoisseurs to taste and review the best Halloween candy available in the United States.

Finton Costello, Managing Director of BonusFinder

The competition is open to residents of Canada or the U.S. over the age of 21. There's a limit of one entry per person and you might have to provide proof that you're eligible.

The application form urges candy addicts to get creative with their applications — pro tip: reference "Spooktober" content for bonus points.

Among other criteria, as BonusFinder's candy connoisseur, you'll have to judge the candy's taste, the complexity of flavours, portion size, jaw ache score, wrapper appeal and the candy's bang for your buck.  

The winner will be contacted by email or social media DM on November 6. Keep an eye out, because you'll have to claim your win within 48 hours or BonusFinder will award the next best applicant.

Winners will also get an assortment of candies along with the cash prize. You can find out more details on BonusFinder's application page.
