Lick This … Chocolate-Flavored Postage Stamps

Chocolate 300x288 Lick This ... Chocolate Flavored Postage Stamps[1]Chocolate lovers and stamp collectors, rejoice!

The government of Belgium has unwrapped a new line of stamps that smell and taste like chocolate[2]. Cacao oil has been included in the adhesive on the stamp’s back so that users get a taste of chocolate when they lick them, the Associated Press notes.

In addition to the taste, the oil gives the stamps a chocolate smell. But be prepared for satisfying your chocolate postal cravings. The stamps are priced at $8 for a set of five.

Belgium has released 538,000 of the chocolate stamps.

Last month, the United States Postal Service, which lost almost $16 billion last year, announced that it had partnered with an apparel maker to launch a new line of outdoor clothing and accessories[3].
