Researchers have discovered a sneaky new recruitment tool: ascertain if the candidate has a sweet tooth to unlock their true personality.

    thats not going to be a good indicator. Keep in mind women tend to get chocolate cravings... and many people are conscious of their weight so may choose not to eat for that reason alone. Not to mention if you are serious about the job, protocol is not to accept or eat food during an interview. Its not a good thing to choke on food, be chewing something or have sticky fingers as you shake the interviewers hand.

    I'd suggest you stick to behavioural interviewing questions to determine if the person is more likely to be agreeable. If thats what you need for that position.
