Doritos Wants To Pay Someone £18K To Be Their Official Taste Tester

We've all thought at one point or another about how good it would be to get paid for something we do in our spare time.

While that might seem like a fantasy, Doritos is looking to make one person's dream come true and will pay someone actual money to literally just eat their crisps.

I know, I know - sounds too good to be true.

But it isn't.



The crisp company wants to find their 'ultimate superfan' and give them £18,000 to be their official taste tester and pitch ideas for bold, new creations. All you have to do is fill out an application form and send it in before April 15 and you could be that person they're looking for.

A statement on Doritos' website reads: "We know our fans are like no other and are bold enough to prove their loyalty to the temple of tortilla. We want to reward this dedication which is why we're offering up one year's bragging rights to the most devoted Doritos Superfan in the UK.

"This prestigious honour offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to be at the forefront of the crunch revolution."


You'll get a tour of the factory where the legendary crisps are made to give you an idea of how to bring a flavour to life.

But the company isn't going to accept just any Tom, Dick or Harry - they're a list of qualifications and requirements that you have to tick (but admittedly it's kind of easy).

  • Minimum 2 years Doritos eating experience
  • H.N.D.D (Higher National Doritos Dip-loma) qualification or higher
  • Strong snack-alytical skills
  • High level of chip acumen is required
  • Ability to eat well under pressure

Doritos says that you won't even have to quit your day job to take up this new venture and the hours required will be 'minimal'.


We're all familiar with Nacho Cheese, Tangy Cheese and Cool Ranch; but it'll be your job to give the greenlight to new flavours - and there have been a few interesting ones over the years.

The company introduced Doritos Collisions, where a bag had a combination of two flavours, ranging from Hot Wings and Blue Cheese, Zesty Taco and Chipotle Ranch, Habanero and Guacamole, Cheesy Enchilada and Sour Cream, and Pizza Cravers and Ranch.

They've dabbled with spicy flavours: Blazin' Jalapeño/Jalapeño Fire, Fiery Buffalo and Scorchin' Habanero; as well as a roulette bag where one in every six crisps were phenomenally hot.

If you get the job, you could be behind the next exciting product.
