Attention candy connoisseurs! This sweet internship may very well be your dream job.

Mars Wrigley is hiring a summer intern to learn all about the world of candy making.

The confectionery intern will go behind the scenes at manufacturing sites and taste test new flavors of chocolates and candy. The selected person will even make their own batch of chewing gum in the company's research and development labs.

The program lasts eight to 12 weeks and is based out of the company's headquarters in Chicago.

Even better: it's fully paid and also includes a signing bonus of one year's worth of candy.

Ideal candidates should have social media experience and strong communication skills. Applicants must be at least 21 years old, but have the mindset of a "kid in a candy store."

Applications are being accepted until June 1. To apply, visit the company's website.
