mouth and chocolateHave you got what it takes to be an official chocolate taster? Black Magic needs eight new chocolate tasters from across the country.

To apply to be an Official Black Magic Chocolate Taster explain in no more than 50 words why you think you should be given the role. Closing date 23rd November 2007.

Winners will meet their seven other tasting colleagues for the first time at an exclusive lunch at top London restaurant Dans le Noir?
