Belgium introduces chocolate-flavoured postage stamps for Easter

“Tastes like chocolate never tasted before…”

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.
