Market research company Flavor Wiki are asking for people to taste test a new cadbury chocolate nut bar.
Payment is £8 to paypal which includes having to buy one of the bars.

You will need to do a quick survey to see if you qualify then they will give you the details of what you need to purchase and a link to the survey.


Note: As the bars are new they are only being trialed in BP filling stations and WH smiths at the moment. They are offering £8 for the specific Cadbury bars which are being tested or £2 for testing one of the competitor's bars. Its not worth doing the £2 bar as it will barely cover the cost of buying it.

I don't have an allergy I just don't like nuts. Is it possible to do this without actually eating the thing and making something up? I assume all they really need is proof of purchase?

I guess you could. The photos they want are the receipt and a photo of the product, opened, with a thumbs up or thumbs down. So you could probably blag it.

@Karonher Yes, sorry. My nearest WHsmith is in a railway station, I assumed it was all Smiths but it looks like its just the concessions that are within other places, like railway stations and hospitals. And also BP filling stations.

I've just been doing a project where they pay you to test snack bars. How much depends on which bars you are selected to try. The ines I was offered were between £2 and £8 and I could do it more than once. I was then also offered £40 do a video recording while testing a snack bar.

I can refer people if anyone is interested (I do get a fiver for refering you). So far I made £78 last week between my snack bar surveys and referring so it has been a nice earner if anyone would like to sign up.

The pay by paypal and you do have to buy the bar yourself but its been well worth a quid for a bar with the earnings.

This is my referral link if anyone would like to use it (hope it is ok to post, if not happy to send to people via pm) -

Well I did it, only the bars you could buy at the supermarket though. I earned the grand total of £2, didn't even cover the cost of the product as I could only get a multi-pack. I could do a video and earn a bit more but don't think I'll bother, not sure I could do a whole video of me trying a cereal bar!!

The cash back that you will receive for each snack bar you taste is written next to the product. These values include the product price.

They are offering me £2 payment for a £1.30 bar - feels like too much real world effort (i.e. not on the lappy in front of the tv) for a very small payoff.

Sorry to hear that Dianeayr. It might have been best to abandon the task when you realised the single bars weren't available in your shop, unless you were going to buy the multipack anyway. I never did the video but it might be worth giving it a go to claw back the money you spent.

Is this the same as this one? Do they have regular jobs or is it very sporadic?

Yes I think so. From what I saw when I researched the company to see if it is legit they do also do other projects - in the past its been protein shakes, sweets and fruit snacks from what I can see. all very ad-hoc though by the look of it but then on my experience most market research opportunities are.

Yes not as good if you aren't offered the higher paying bars I guess, but I l started out on the £2 bar, paid £1 for the product and then made £20 having my friends and family sign up. Then I was offered to trial another bar and do a video. Its certainly been a good reward vs effort for me, but I appriciate it wouldn't be for everyone.
