Wanted: Professional Chocoholic

Calling all chocoholics! One of Britain's most exclusive grocery stores needs a new chocolate taster and will pay 35,000 pounds a year - that's $54,400 - to whoever lands the job.

Fortnum & Mason in London's Piccadilly - one of the capital's most prestigious addresses - is looking for a chocolate buyer to travel the world, taste as much chocolate as possible and select only the best for its discerning customers.

Friday's Daily Telegraph newspaper said the Fortnum's personnel director Cathy O'Neill has already been bombarded with applications after she advertised the post as the "best job in the world."
