(Newser) – A lollipop-obsessed boy has won a dream job right out of a Willy Wonka fantasy: he's going to become a British candy company's taster for a year, reports the Telegraph. "I'm sure the next year is going to be a real adventure," said 12-year-old Harry Willsher, who'll be chomping on Love Hearts and Drumstick Lollies churned out by the Swizzels Matlow company. Harry beat out thousands of rivals with a saccharine essay on company sweets.
