Do you have a sweet tooth?

Does your significant other or your kids have an even bigger one?

Now might be the time to cash in on your family’s guilty pleasure, as Canadian candy store Candy Funhouse claims it is hiring its first-ever chief candy officer.

The sweets shop apparently isn’t skimping on salary, either.

The job listing on LinkedIn indicates that the new chief candy officer will be offered $100,000 annually.

The chief candy officer will be responsible for taste-testing more than 3,500 different types of candy monthly, while deciding if these sweets are Candy Funhouse-worthy, the company indicates.

Candy Funhouse says it is Canada’s largest online candy store; it’s based in Toronto.

It carries sweet favorites like Laffy Taffy, Sour Patch Kids, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Kit-Kats.

“All you need is a passion for candy, pop culture and a sweet tooth,” the posting reads.

“I’m thrilled for all the candy adventures we have planned!”

Candidates can apply to the position on LinkedIn before the deadline of Aug. 31, 2022, the company indicates.
