Chocolate Expert – level 3

04-05-2021 15:00

Taste buds are as important to Cadbury, a world-famous chocolate brand, as legs are to a top footballer. The company has had one of their scientist’s taste buds insured for 1 million pounds.

The scientist works as part of a 300-strong team of inventors in the innovation kitchen in Birmingham. The company says that her expert taste buds are essential for making sure that all of Cadbury’s new creations meet its highest standards.

To avoid rendering the insurance void, she needs to not take up sword swallowing, eat fugu fish, or the hottest of chilli peppers. None of these sound more appealing than getting paid to taste chocolate!

Difficult words: taste buds (the nerve endings on the tongue which provide the sense of taste), essential (extremely important), render (make), void (not valid).
