The US Postal Service Could Easily Turn Things Around With Belgian Chocolate-Flavored Stamps

It can't just be the United States Postal Service that's having a hard time staying afloat. Email and social networking is available all around the world, but maybe the USPS should take a hint from the clever Belgians who've created a collection of stamps that celebrate—and actually smell and taste like—chocolate.


The collection is designed to celebrate the country's heritage and reputation of producing some of the world's finest chocolate, and when available on March 25 will come in five unique designs. And besides mouthwatering imagery, the glue used on the stamps was spiked with cocoa oils so they smell chocolately, and hopefully taste just as good. Thankfully, the flavor bar with stamps has already been set pretty low. Collectors outside of Belgium might want to book their flights now, though, since the run is being limited to just 500,000 stamps and there's no doubt the locals are going to snatch them up quickly.
