Ice Cream Taster
Estimated pay: $40,000 to $100,000
Do you have a tub of ice cream in your freezer? Chances are you didn't know that someone is getting paid big bucks to taste-test the frozen flavor before it hits the market.
An ice cream taster can be known by other titles such as taste master, food scientist or flavorologist. The schedule for these tasters can be demanding, according to PayScale. A taster might have to test sample after sample and assess the ice cream on appearance, smell, taste and texture.
The average pay for a food scientist is $60,000, but generally ice cream tasters make between $40,000 and $100,000. Landing the job requires that your taste buds be in tip-top condition.
