An Aussie flavour to sweet taste tester job on offer

WORKING with ice cream has to be one the sweetest jobs around.

For Wendys Gladstone manager Kaylee Hance, she admits sometimes it can be hard to resist eating on the job.

With the ice cream giant now searching for its official taste tester, there is extra incentive to sample the flavours and develop one's judging expertise.

In the lead-up to Australia Day, Wendys is calling for suggestions for an Australian-inspired flavour that celebrates our unique identity.

Owner of Wendys Gladstone Linda Robinson encouraged people to think outside the box, with suggestions like vanilla and vegemite swirl or lemon meringue pie with sauce.

"This competition is all about celebrating flavour ideas that either incorporates an iconic Australian food or that represent something great about Australia," she said.

The winner will also get to visit the Wendys ice cream factory.

To enter email suggestions to marketing@wendys.com.au by January 26.
