Belgium’s chocolate-flavored stamps get seal of approval

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Come March 25, Belgium will launch a new postal product — a chocolate smelling, chocolate tasting stamp.

"We have added a chocolate taste to the glue of the stamps," the Belgian postal service said, in an Agence France-Presse report. "You can taste [it] when you lick it."

The stamps also smell of chocolate, AFP reports.

"It was not easy to get the scent and flavor of the dark chocolate right," the postal service said, according to AFP. "In the end, people from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland all worked on it."
