If you’ve ever fantasized about getting paid to eat candy all day, now’s your chance to do just that. Candy company Mars Wrigley is officially looking for a “candy connoisseur.”

The candy giants (makers of Twix, Milky Way, Skittles, Dove, stop us whenever) are hiring a candy and chocolate intern who will spend eight to 12 weeks tasting new candy and working on social media strategy and content development. And FYI, it’s fully paid (with a signing bonus of one year’s worth of candy).

You can apply online here, but be warned: The job posting is wildly specific. The ideal candidate must be able to:

1. Distinguish all five fruity flavors from the Skittles rainbow in a blind taste test
2. Demonstrate the willpower to write about and photograph candy without eating it before the work is complete
3. Blow bubbles with chewing gum that are greater than 5 inches in diameter
4. Be a strong entrepreneur and self-starter, preferably someone who isn’t afraid to ring every doorbell in every neighborhood on Halloween

We’re pretty sure they’re kidding, but you might want to brush up on your bubble-blowing skills just in case. (Have your toothbrush handy, too.)
