According to Golden Bake, 20 million jambons were enjoyed by Irish consumers last year - meaning that one jambon was consumed every 1.5 seconds.
Today is National Jambon Day (who knew?!) and Golden Bake has confirmed that they're recruiting for a head jambon taster... a role jambon lovers are likely to describe as their dream gig. Interested? Read on.
Celebrating their third annual National Jambon Day, the frozen bakery retail brand is marking the milestone by putting a call out for a head jambon taster.
Opening applications to any jambon fan interested in lending a helping hand, the successful applicant will be tasked with developing an original limited-edition flavour for the company. You'll also bag yourself a year's supply of Golden Bake jambons for your troubles.
Like I said, dream gig.
How does one apply? Just get in touch and suggest what your ultimate jambon flavour would be. Simple.
Speaking of the new jambon taster role, CEO of Golden Bake Robin Jones commented:
"National Jambon Day is a light-hearted annual celebration of Ireland’s favourite comfort food. The Jambon has a special place in the Irish psyche and we are constantly hearing from customers about their love for the product."
So, put your thinking caps on and get brainstorming... if you can dream it, you can do it as the saying goes. Entries close March 21st.
