Imagine having ‘Festive Food Tester’ on your CV.
We may have written off 2020 as the worst year yet, but this year has brought us some insane dream job roles to apply for, from selling books in the Maldives to running the ancient city of Pompeii as well as testing chocolate and baked goods. And now, there is another position up for grabs to be a festive food tester, just in time for the festive season.
One of the most exciting things in the run-up to Christmas is the limited-edition festive menus which many of our favourite chains offer – from seasonal sandwiches and drinks to pastries filled with festive ingredients. Well, if you’re a big fan of festive treats then this job could be for you. MoneyBeach.co.uk is looking for a takeaway-loving, crazy-for-Christmas individual to be a Festive Food Tester by trying a range of items from the nation’s favourite restaurants, shops and takeaways. Plus, you can do this from the comfort of your own home!
The restaurant and takeaway insurance website will give the successful applicant a £75 voucher to order a range of Yuletide yumminess from places like Greggs, KFC, Costa Coffee and McDonalds. It is a fully remote task, as all delicious items will be ordered via delivery apps like Deliveroo, UberEats and Just Eat. Working from home never tasted so good!
To discover which of these festive foods are officially the best, and which are a festive fail, the festive food tester will sample a range of Christmas dishes, snacks and drinks and review them based on taste, value for money and– most importantly – how Christmassy it makes them feel. All the information from the tester’s reviews will be used to officially crown the best festive food in the UK.
To inspire some merry munchings, MoneyBeach.co.uk has crunched the data to discover the most popular festive foods in the UK based on Google searches. The findings revealed that the Greggs Festive Bake is the most searched for limited-edition Christmas food.
