With Easter less than a month away (yes, really) and supermarket shelves already beginning to fill up with endless variations of chocolate eggs, it’s officially a sweet tooth’s favourite time of year.
If you consider yourself to be something of a chocolate connoisseur, then you’re in luck: Aldi is recruiting three ‘tasting officers’ to sample its Easter egg range.
The sweet gig will involve tasting the range, rating it and reviewing it. The feedback will play a pivotal part in helping the Aldi team come up with next year’s range.
Aldi spokesperson, Julie Ashfield, said: "Their feedback will also help our buying team create next years’ showstoppers, to ensure we’re giving our shoppers what they want.”
Some of the eggs in Aldi’s range that the testers will be able to sample include Specially Selected Exquisite Beehive Egg with honeycomb pieces, as well as the sizeable Giant Dragon Egg.
