A DOUGHNUT company advertising for taste testers was bombarded with 11,000 applications in less than 24 hours.

The recruitment appeal went viral after small firm Project D promised on Facebook that volunteers would be paid with the tasty treats.

Bosses were “blown away” with the huge number of serious applications in just a few hours — and roles are still open.

The Derby-based company wants tasters who will provide comprehensive feedback.

Successful applicants will receive a box of different doughnuts once a week for a month and must provide feedback on quality, selection, the flavours and the toppings.

They will also get previews of future products and be the first to try new flavours.

Co-owner Max Poynton said: “We were blown away by the response — it’s been amazing.

"No experience is necessary but we are looking for people with a passion for doughnuts, the tastebuds to distinguish between even the slightest flavour changes and an eagerness to try new products.”

Project D delivers its doughnuts to homes across the UK after launching a postal service with DPD.
