Twisted: Unserious food tastes seriously good.

A plant-based dog food company is looking to pay a taste tester £5000 to live off their product for five days, to prove the food is so tasty it’s good enough even for us humans.

And whilst we would usually scoff at the idea of living off a dog food diet, we will admit that £1000 a day is tempting…

The company, OMNI, is hoping the challenge will prove they’re using the finest ingredients, and that they’re healthy and nutritious.

The successful candidate will have to record their experience eating dog food, and report back on how it tastes and how they feel whilst carrying out the challenge.

You will have to be super honest if you want to take part, and record everything from energy levels, to mood to bowel movements (yep, they want all the gory details).

Eating dog food for five days might sounds pretty grim, but this stuff is different. It’s filled with sweet potatoes, lentils, brown rice, pumpkin, blueberries, peas and cranberries.

Even if you’re not typically plant-based, you have to admit, this sounds slightly more appealing than the animal by-products and dinner rejects your doggo usually eats.

If you want that £5000 you’d better be quick, as OMNI is looking for its taste tester to start as soon as possible.

They’ll send the food over to you ASAP and you’ll also have free access to a registered dietician throughout the five days.

You’ll only get your money once the trial is up, so you really do have to eat the food for just shy of a week before you can cash in.

Job applications close on 31st May and those hoping to apply can do so by clicking here.

The only conditions are that you must be from the UK and be over the age of 18 to take part.

You also have to disclose your allergies to ensure you’re a suitable candidate to eat the dog food, as well as physical attributes, such as weight, skin, and hair condition.  

Shiv Sivakumar, co-founder of OMNI, said, “OMNI is clean label, meaning that it doesn’t have any mysterious ingredients. While all dog food has to use human grade ingredients by law, many brands use cheap animal by-products and unwanted leftovers that humans would definitely not want to eat themselves given the choice.

“We firmly believe that OMNI is good enough for even humans to eat, and more importantly enjoy, that we’re going to put our money where our mouth is.

“We decided to recruit a human taste tester to prove just how tasty and healthy plant-based dog food can be. Me and the other founder of OMNI would even eat our products – and we’re sure many other dog food brand producers wouldn’t.

“So, if you are looking to try out a new diet change and earn a little extra on the side, please sign up!”

Here at Twisted, the food we tell you about is usually much nicer than dog food. But, hey, £1000 a day certainly isn’t to be sniffed at.
