BRUSSELS (AP) - Feel like having chocolate at Easter in Belgium? Well, send a
letter and really lick that chocolate-flavored postal stamp.
The Belgian post office released 538,000 stamps on Monday that have pictures of chocolate on the front but the essence of cacao 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 6.2 euros ($8) but might leave a customer hungry for more.
