    Question Just quit my job as a professional gum & candy taster.. Ask Me Anything

    So in October I fell off the primal wagon, then set the wagon on fire, and gained back most of the weight I had lost. Shortly after I beat out 700 other applicants and was offered a job as a professional gum & candy taster for an international brand's tasting panel. Just a few days ago, half-way through training I couldn't bring myself to continue and quit. So now I'm back here -- prodigal son coming home and all that.

    There are probably less than 100 professional gum & candy tasters in the US (as most brands can't or won't pay for them) so thought you all might have some questions about the industry and my experience. Feel free to ask anything and I'll try my best to answer. (Just don't ask what company, I'd rather not say.)
