posted by Mike Salois - 

The Mars Wrigley company is seeking interns with special skills including being able to distinguish between flavors of Skittles in a blind taste test.

Mars Wrigley Confectionery posted a job opening seeking applicants for the "World's Sweetest Internship" in Chicago.

The posting says the company is seeking a "confectionery connoisseur" whose duties would include sampling the company's chocolate, gum and confections -- including several varieties not yet available to the public -- and producing a personalized batch of chewing gum.

The paid intern would be required to chronicle their 8-12 week experience with the company on social media.

The position, which includes a year's worth of candy as a signing bonus, features a few unusual qualifications for an "ideal candidate," including being able to "distinguish all five fruity flavors from the Skittles rainbow in a blind taste-test."

The posting says ideal candidates should also be able to "blow bubbles with chewing gum that are greater than 5 inches in diameter."
