Apparently you can make 30,000 British pounds a year as “Britain’s chief chocolate taster,” but you’ll also pack on about 28 pounds (weight-wise) in the process. At least, that was the experience of Angus Kennedy. According to Metro News of the UK, Angus Kennedy is stepping down from his chocolate tasting job because he put on too much weight and his cholesterol got too high.
Yikes! No worries, readers. I had my cholesterol checked about a year ago, and the nurse declared that I had the lowest HDL cholesterol levels that she’d seen all day. Also I’m not eating 2 lbs of chocolate a day (thank goodness!).
