Louise Bamber might have the best job of all time. She works for Asda, the chain of British supermarkets, as an ice cream taste tester.
That means Bamber tries an average of 23 different flavors every day, or about 460 spoonfuls every month. As if that wasn’t enough. Bamber travels to 10 ice cream factories that supply Asda, including ones abroad and assures that their product meets the supermarket’s quality standards…which means eating even more ice cream.
While it might seem like a ridiculous job, it’s a perfect fit for Bamber. “My grandparents were Italian and came over to England to set up their own ice cream shop when I was little,” she explains. “My first ever job was spent helping my Nana to serve the ice cream to customers – so scooping for a living is in my blood.”
