A Company Will Pay You $1K To Test Hot Chocolate As A 'Holiday Side Hustle'

Lifestyle website Wishlisted is offering $1,000 and a one-year Netflix subscription for a person to test hot chocolate as part of its "holiday side hustle" package.

Wishlisted said it wanted a "jolly" person to apply for the role that would have them search for the best cup of cocoa.

The company dedicates itself to finding the best products, services and tips in the aim of helping improve its readers' lifestyles.

Its team said in an advert looking for the cocoa tester: "The pièce de résistance on a cozy winter night in…a steaming cup of hot cocoa.

"While most of the time we reach for the packet of Swiss Miss that has been in the pantry since we're not sure when (as long as it's not expired that is), the team at Wishlisted is on the search to find the best of the best hot chocolate mixes to make this season a little sweeter."

The advert for the role continued: "That's where you come in. We are looking for one jolly individual who loves a good cup of hot cocoa with all the fixings and isn't afraid to tell us which mix is a hit or a Swiss miss.

"Plus, as an added bonus, we're throwing in $1,000 cash, a cozy blanket and a year subscription to Netflix for the ultimate hot cocoa drinking experience."

The successful applicant will be given a selection of hot chocolate mixes, a blanket and a Netflix gift card before they cozy up to test the samples.

Only when the tester has shared their opinions about the hot chocolate samples will they receive the $1,000.

In order to be selected, applicants must meet the following criteria:

• Love a delicious cup of hot cocoa
• Have opinions and aren't afraid to share them
• The Holiday season is your favorite time of year
• Can receive deliveries of multiple packages (UPS, FedEx, etc.)
