Dream job, official ice cream taster

He's the man with the million dollar taste buds. Edy's Ice Cream official taster John Harrison took a break from his sweet job to pay a visit to a Tulsa Wal-Mart Tuesday.

Harrison previewed this summer's new flavors and announced Edy's "Rookie Moment" contest. Ten lucky ice cream enthusiasts will have the chance to live out one of their dreams, courtesy of Edy's.

It might sound like a sweet job, but Harrison says being a taster isn't as easy as you might think. "It's a whole lifestyle for me, of keeping a clean palate. 'Cause I'm tasting way up here for that top note, that bouquet, the aroma."

After more than 30 years as a taster, Harrison jokes that his blood runs 16% butterfat.
