5. Ice Cream Taster
Annual Median Salary: $56,000
Eating ice cream for a living? Count us in. These food scientists taste-test ice cream for companies who want to test out their products. It’s normal for these taste testers to try up to 60 ice cream flavors in a day. Most tasters will set the ice cream on the tongue, gather the flavors, and spit it out. It may sound like an easy job, but the taste buds of these workers are so fine-tuned that they can tell the difference between 12 and 11.5% butterfat. Geez!
