The Cadbury’s chocolate tasting expert has insured her taste buds for £1 million, with strict terms and conditions.
Hayleigh Curtis, who works in the Cadbury innovation team, had her palate priced at £1million by specialist insurers Lloyd’s of London. This is of the first policies of its kind.
The conditions of the polices means the Cadbury inventor will need to avoid sword swallowing, eating the notoriously poisonous fugu fish, chomping on chilli peppers and to stay clear from hot curries like vindaloos.
Hayleigh is a part of a team of 300 who are creative inventors in the innovation kitchen at Bournville, the home of Cadbury, creating new flavours and recipes for the company.
Hayleigh, the Cadbury scientist said “I’ve grown up with Cadbury and it has always played a really important role in my life, so it’s great to be part of a team that sit at the global headquarters for chocolate invention.
There is a lot of science that sits behind our chocolate innovation – from mouth feel to melting temperatures of chocolate – so with my tastes buds safeguarded I look forward to creating lots more deliciously tasting chocolate for years to come.”
Hayleigh’s expert taste buds are essential for guaranteeing all new innovations meet the high standards expected of Cadbury chocolate.
