Aldi is looking for someone to be its official crisp taster – and you’ll get sent bags for FREE

The dream job absolutely does exist... and this is it.

Aldi is looking for a special someone to become its official crisp taster, and will send the lucky winner a bunch of bags to try for free.

Calling all spud enthusiasts and self-confessed crisp connoisseurs, this one’s for you.

Merely days after putting out a nationwide call for a handful of new ‘Gin Testers’, whose jobs it’ll be to try out the budget supermarket retailer’s range of summer-inspired gins and review them, Aldi is ready to make savoury snack food lovers’ dreams come true, as it’s now also revealed it’s also on the look-out for an official ‘Crisp Taster’ to join the team too.

In what is a brand-new role for the company, the one lucky person chosen for the role will get sent a selection of Aldi’s most popular crisps to sample at home, and all without having to part with a single penny for them.

Aldi’s Specially Selected Mature Cheddar & Red Onion Hand Cooked, the Snackrite Perfections Thai Sweet Chilli, and Saucy Nibbley Nobblies are just a handful of the potato snacks they’ll be sent.


Not only that, but the new ‘Crisp Taster’ will also get an exclusive first try of products that are yet to hit Aldi’s shelves.

Then, once the lucky recruit has taste-tested each of the crisps sent out to them, all they’ll have to do in return is review each product and rating the crisps on their taste, crunch, texture, and appearance to help guide the supermarket’s Buying Team on potential future flavours.


“What our shoppers think is so important to us,” explained Julie Ashfield, who is the Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, as the role of a lifetime opened its applications this week.

“It’s crucial we listen to their honest feedback, so we can ensure our products continue to deliver on taste, while also offering unbeatable value. Sales of snacks such as crisps and nuts skyrocketed by 40% during the World Cup in 2022, so we expect our crisps to be in high demand this summer with Euros 2024.

“What better timing to find out what our most passionate snack fans have to say?”

Fancy it then? To apply, you’ll just need to be aged 16 or over, a legal UK resident, and create a short application video, that’s no more than a minute long, explaining why you should be Aldi’s first ever ‘Crisp Taster’.

Applications are now open, with a closing deadline of 16 June.
