Chocolate-flavoured Postage Stamps from Belgium for Easter
What a great topical stamp collecting subject to build upon: scented stamps!
In the news, I read about the new chocolate flavoured stamps issued by Belgian Post Office to celebrate Easter. Gotta get those 🙂
FEEL LIKE having chocolate at Easter in Belgium? Well, send a letter and really lick that chocolate-flavoured postal stamp.
The Belgian post office released 538,000 stamps yesterday that have pictures of chocolate on the front – but the essence of cocoa oil in the glue at the back for taste and in the ink for smell.
Belgian stamp collector Marie-Claire Verstichel said while the taste was a bit disappointing, “they smell good.”
Easter is the season for chocolate in Belgium with Easter eggs and bunnies all over supermarkets and specialty stores.
A set of five stamps costs €6.20 but might leave a customer hungry for more.
