M&M’s was launched back in 1941, believe it or not, and now they’re introducing a chocolate bar.
They’ve been around in the US and Australia for a while, but they’re hitting the UK in Tesco nationwide from 17th July. Then, from the 17th August, there will be a full national rollout across other retailers.
Cordelia Linacre, M&M’s Senior Brand Manager, said: “We’ve been inundated with requests to bring M&M’s Bars to the UK – so we’re extremely excited to announce that the wait is over! We invite existing fans and all chocolate lovers to get stuck in!”
The bars will come in four delicious types: Chocolate, Peanut, Crispy and Hazelnut.
In similar chocolate news, if you’ve ever wanted to be a chocolate tester then now is your chance.
Maltesers, Snickers, and Mars Bars are looking for chocolate testers who will munch through a whole load of the stuff to make sure it’s of the best quality possible.
In even better news, experience isn’t necessary – you just need to have great tastebuds, reports Manchester Evening News (MEN). Winning.
The interviews isn’t for the faint-hearted though. You have to rate a whole load of different roads on a scale from 1 to 15 for how sweet, savoury, bitter, or salty they are. That sounds like a lot.
The job is with the owner of Maltesers, Mars, and Snickers – Mars Wrigley. If successful, you get six-months of intensive taste training prior to taking up the role in Slough.
Believe it or not, this role actually does get paid! I know, I’d happily do it for free. The hours are a blissful 12 a day, four days a week. That’s three day weekends, could this job get any better?!
The salary is between £9.76 and £10.25 an hour.
Linda Lopez, senior sensory manager at Mars Wrigley, told MEN: “We are thrilled to be recruiting for our next group of Chocolate Tasters,
“We encourage anyone that has an interest in the textures and tastes of chocolate to apply – we’ll train you in the rest!”
The closing date for applications is TODAY (July 8) so get your applications in quick!
