Do you remember when you were a kid and your teacher would ask you what was your dream job? Footballer, actor, astronaut…chocolate taster. After hearing this answer, your teacher probably started laughing uncontrollably.

Well, to every person that had a good chuckle, you can all go to hell because the dream job in chocolatey heaven is a real thing.
