But if you’ve got a sweet tooth, and find yourself counting down the days until it’s acceptable to start tucking into all the themed Easter chocolate each year, then you’re probably the exact person Aldi is looking for.

The budget supermarket retailer is currently on the look out for three lucky people to take on the “egg-stra special job” of Chief Easter Egg Taster.


Putting out a nationwide casting call for people who fancy landing themselves “the job of a lifetime”, Aldi explains that its Chief Easter Egg Tasters will each receiving an abundance of Aldi’s new Easter eggs to taste-test in exchange for providing the retailer with exclusive reviews of the range.
