The Belgian Post Office Released 538,000 Chocolate Stamps That Are Supposed To Taste Like Chocolate When You Lick Them
One of those things I know I hate doing is licking stamps. It's one of the weirdest feelings, and tastes in the world. I personally hate it. However, maybe someone should update stamp technology. The Belgian Post Office decided to enter 2013 in style, they have released over 538,000 Chocolate stamps that look like chocolate, and taste like chocolate, in time for Easter.
According to the AP, these stamps were released on Monday. They have pictures of chocolate on the front, and the essence of cacao oil in the glue at the back for taste and smell.
Belgian stamp collector Marie-Claire Verstichel said while the taste was a bit disappointing, "they smell good."
You mean to tell me chocolate stamps don't taste as good as eating chocolate? What a shame... They don't cost all too much either. A set of five stamps costs about 6.2 euros (which adds up to $8 in the states). I guess I'll just have to go back to adding chocolate syrup to my envelopes.
