Chocolate-Scented Postage Stamps


Last month France's postal service La Poste released a limited edition chocolate-themed — and chocolate-scented! — set of ten postage stamps to celebrate the 400th anniversary of chocolate's arrival in France in 1609. Getting mail with these would not only be fun, but delicious. From Serious Eats, via A Cup of Jo.

Wow! They look so real. I would hate to receive something so tasty scented and have it be just purely scented. What a tricksy thing to do!
