Hi all! I just wanted to let you all know I way I found to make a little extra money on the side. Its called food tasting.
I have been doing this since last October. There is a local reseach company that holds food tastings for new foods that they are testing before putting out on the market. I have gotten anywhere from $20-$100 per food taste depending on the time it takes. I think since October I have made close to $1,000 doing this.
It cost no money to sign up or at any time just some of your time and a little driving to get there. You taste the food then fill out surveys or talk in focus groups about them. Anybody from 4-65 can join. The big exception is latex or certain food allergies. Adults get paid on the spot using their atm and a pin number that they give you. Kids get compensated with gift cards to local merchants.
The tests at the company are anywhere from 2-5 hours but you can pick and choose which ones you want to participate in. Some tests are even take home for one week so if you dont have a two hour window during the weekdays you can still participate by taking it home. Lastly after you are signed up they call you when they have new tests avaliable and you use an automated system over the phone to see if you qualify for the test. There are have been times because of the choices I made on the automted system that I didnt get chosen for the test, but overall I qualify for most of them
I use this company http://www.innovationresearchomaha.com
but there might be other companies in your area.
Anybody else done this or found other ways to make some money on the side please feel free to post them!
