Each day john tests ice cream that was produced the day before, f he approve it, cartons are shipped to stores.

He evaluates the appearance, flavor and texture of about 60 packages of ice cream each day.  John uses a gold plated spoon because silver, plastic and wood all give off a weird taste.

If you want to be an ice cream tester, you'll need a dairy science or food science degree.
