Do you love donuts? Do you really love donuts?

If so, do we have the gig for you.

National Donut Day is right around the corner on June 2, and one company is offering one lucky winner $1,000 to taste, rate and photograph donuts as part of its dream job sweepstakes.

PlayStar, an online casino company based in New Jersey (home to more than 800 Dunkin’ Donuts locations), wants to find out which donut chain reigns supreme.

They will ship an assortment of donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts, Krispy Kreme, Tim Horton’s and some of the popular donut chains in the winner’s home state.

The winner will then, in turn, blow up their Insta with mouth-watering photos and tell the world which donut chain is sweeter than the rest.

All PlayStar asks is for applicants to tell them why they would be the perfect donut taste tester. To apply, you’ll need to be at least 21 years old and a resident of the U.S.

The dream job taste tester will receive:

  • $1,000 cash prize upon completing the taste test.
  • Covered expenses related to delivery of the donuts — from a maximum of five chains — to the winner’s address.
  • The chance to have your review published on the PlayStar website.

So if devouring donuts like Homer Simpson sounds appealing to you, go and apply for this dream job today on PlayStar’s website.
