The crisp goliath has launched a nationwide search to recruit the ‘UK’s boldest Doritos Superfan’ – and the perks are truly mouth-watering.

According to the company, one lucky Doritos superfan will be given behind the scenes access to the brand and get the opportunity to try the newest flavours before anyone else.

On top of this, the nacho-lover will get free visits to the Doritos factory to experience how ‘chip magic’ happens, the chance to attend quarterly research and development meetings for new products, and become an official ‘Bold Brand Ambassador’.

Comedian Katherine Ryan will be helping to judge the competition

£18,000 prize

As with most dream jobs, however, there is a catch – and it’s a big one.

Sadly, the competition winner will not get a full-time job with the company and will instead be given a one-off cash prize of £18,000.

To sweeten the deal they will also receive a year’s supply of the crisps.

To be in with a chance of winning, applicants will have to get through a rigorous interview process led by comedian Katherine Ryan.

Katherine and the Doritos team will choose the person they deem most worthy of the prize – and competition is expected to be fierce.
