Do you consider gelato #life? Could you tell the difference between milk, Belgian and sugar-free chocolate in a blind taste test? Rate your taste buds so much you reckon you could get them insured? Then we want you My name is Anna and I’m a Product Innovation Specialist at Gelatissimo. If you’re a semi-professional gelato eater, then you might have heard of us. Every day our artisan gelato makers are making delicious gelato fresh in store with only the best ingredients. We’re constantly working on delicious new flavours and to make sure we’re staying on top of our game, we’re after the most refined taste buds in Australia to help us out by testing and evaluating our current range as well as our new flavours of gelato before they’re released. If you’re confident you can assess the quality of flavours on the basis of texture, colour, smell and appearance and can evaluate the nuances of flavours as objectively as possible, then we want you to be our Gelato Taste Tester. You’ll be required on Friday 27 September at Gelatissimo’s Sydney office in Rydalmere for four hours of intensive tasting. You’ll be paid $500 for your valuable time and even more valuable taste buds. Rules of taste-testing: 1. Make sure you’re in an environment with minimal distractions. Gelato tasting is serious business, so the sensory tasting needs to be as true and unbiased as possible. 2. Taste with your eyes. Is the appearance of the gelato visually appealing? If so, that’s a great start. 3. Next is the fun bit, the actual tasting. Taste from a spoon turned upside down and place the gelato directly onto your tongue to make sure you’re using all 10,000 of your trusty taste buds. 4. While you’re there, why don’t you take another spoonful (how can you resist?) and this time think about the texture. Gelato is known to be smooth and creamy, so make sure that requirement is met. 5. Have a cup of water nearby to rinse out your mouth between flavours, and then start again! 6. Your tongue and taste buds must be prepared for the job. The day before, please minimise caffeine, chilli and particularly hot food to ensure your palate is cleansed and your taste buds are undamaged. Please have a small breakfast to ensure your taste buds are at their most receptive. You’ll leave full, don’t worry. Tough job, but someone has to do it. Apply below by telling us why you’re the best person for the job.

Hi, I'm Alice and I'm from Italy. I've been a great gelato fan since I was a kid. I've been tasting LOTS of different type of Gelato around Italy, and I do taste the difference when I'm abroad! I've been to Australia for a year, but the past two months I've been to Italy and I've been eating a lot of gelato! I'll be in Australia on the 25th, just in time! ;) I love eating and I'm ready to taste your gelato!
I am a fan of ice-cream and gelato. I eat sweet or ice-cream almost every day. I don't have any allergies and i like to try new favour and food. I am free on the 27th and i would like to join the tasting.
