STATEN ISLAND, NY — Need a few extra bucks and love the taste of pumpkin?
If so, FinanceBuzz has a great gig for you. It’s looking for a candidate to taste all the fall-inspired foods at Trader Joe’s and is willing to pay the taster $1,000 to do it.
It will also provide a $500 Trader Joe’s gift card to cover the cost of the feast.
“You’ll need to eat your way through a grocery list, including foods like pumpkin-stuffed ravioli and pumpkin samosas,” the FinanceBuzz announcement said. “For breakfast, you’ll chow on pumpkin waffles, pumpkin-flavored cereal and cinnamon rolls. It wouldn’t be a full meal without fall desserts like apple cider donuts and pumpkin ice cream. Wash it all down with autumn-inspired drinks like apple cider and pumpkin-spiced ginger brew.”
FinanceBuzz says it will use market research to help shoppers decide which foods to budget for and which foods to skip, the appeal on the personal finance advice site reads.
Trader Joe’s is not officially endorsing this job posting. It was created by the personal finance advice site.
