Canadian company is looking for the world's first Chief Candy Officer

Candy Funhouse in Ontario posted a job opening for what it calls the world's first CCO, chief candy officer, to be tasked with taste testing thousands of sweet products each month.

Now, while it does come with a dental plan, I'd suggest toothbrushing - a lot of it.
