A Doughnut Company Is Looking For Taste Testers
A doughnut company is on the lookout for taste testers and I can honestly say I don't think I've ever been more suitable for a role.
Project D is looking for a number of volunteers to munch their way through four doughnuts each week for a month and report back about the quality, selection, flavours and toppings. Sounds good to me.
The company changes the flavour of its doughnuts every six weeks and even offers a vegan range. Its now on the hunt for between three and five testers in each of its delivery locations across the West Midlands.
As well as getting to enjoy free doughnuts, the testers will also be the very first to try out the new flavours.
Project D's co-owner Jacob Watts said: "We're really looking for the ultimate foodies - creative individuals who will be able to provide us with honest feedback.
"No experience is necessary, but we are looking for people with a passion for doughnuts, the taste buds to distinguish between even the slightest flavour changes and an eagerness to try new products.

"Since we broadened our delivery range we can see that some doughnuts sell better in some areas than others. So, we would like to gather more information on these taste trends so we can tailor-make our doughnuts to suit the demand."
Project D, which launched 12 months ago, initially started out by flogging their sweet treats at festivals and food events, but since lockdown hit they have been offering a home delivery service which drops off boxes of doughnuts at a number of locations, including Derby, Nottinghamshire, Mansfield, Sheffield, Stoke, Leicester and Birmingham.
Jacob added: "We know this role sounds like something out of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but we are genuinely looking for some creative individuals who can help Project D progress to the next level.
"We know our doughnuts are second to none and we get some fantastic feedback from customers. Having taste testers on each of our delivery routes will just help us to perfect our product and we can't wait to start working with successful candidates."
The lucky taste testers will get £60 worth of doughnuts to give feedback on.
