Being able to eat cookies and earn dough is the ultimate dream for all chocolate chip cookie lovers.

Luckily, there's a vacancy for the dream job.

Maryland is on the hunt for people to become its new cookie taster.

The company, based in St Albans, has released a job advert for people across the country to get paid to try its range of cookies.

The best applicant will be recruited to attend the Maryland Innovation Centre in Edinburgh and will get to try cookies that have not been released.

Your feedback will be used to help the team at Maryland develop even more of the very best Maryland cookies possible.

You will also be able to create your own cookie flavour, and bring a friend.

Tasters will be paid £350.
