London, May 11 (ANI): Brit schoolboy Harry Willsher has certainly landed the sweetest job in the world-a chief taster in a sweet factory.

The 12-year-old boy from Billericay, Essex, had won a contest at Swizzell’s Matlow to find a recruit, and will now be testing top-secret sugary recipes as part of his new job.

“I had a tour after I got the job and it was as if I’d stepped into the book Charlie And The Chocolate Factory,” British tabloid The Sun quoted him as saying.

Willsher bowled over the judges after he described the flavour and smell of his favourite sweet- the Drumstick lolly.

And now the Derby firm, which also makes Love Hearts, Rainbow Drops and Parma Violets, has given the youngster chief taster overalls and business cards.

Harry said: “On my first visit it was like I was inside Willy Wonka’s factory, especially when I saw the Rainbow Drops machine, which pops out lots of brightly coloured sweets. This is my dream job. I just hope I can do it when I grow up too. I’ll taste new sweets every three months but I’m not allowed to tell anyone what they are.”

Harry’s dad Anthony, 44, an insurance worker, said: “He had a wonderful day at the factory. It was a magical place.” (ANI)
