Searching for the perfect side hustle? More importantly, are you obsessed with all things autumn, and counting down the days until Trader Joe’s launches their pumpkin groceries? Well, I’ve got good news for you. Personal finance site FinanceBuzz recently announced an exciting, fall-themed job opening: a Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Palooza Taste Tester. (Yes, you read that right.)

The person selected as the site’s Pumpkin Spice Pundit will receive a $500 Trader Joe’s gift card to buy and try all the pumpkin-themed foods at TJ’s — from pumpkin waffles and cereal to pumpkin-stuffed ravioli and ice cream. But that’s not all. It actually gets much better. FinanceBuzz will also pay the Pundit $1000 straight-up cash for this valuable market research. If that’s not a win-win, I don’t know what is!

Like any job, however, this one involves some hard work. On top of satisfying all of your pumpkin cravings, you’ll need to take a photo of each pumpkin item you buy, write a brief description, and rate the food based on several predetermined criteria. Then, FinanceBuzz will share your findings so shoppers can budget for the best fall foods at TJ’s.
