…And a Postage Stamp For Dessert


After a fine meal and tasty beverage, many diners turn to delicious chocolate treats for dessert – if there’s room. When the waiter brings that tempting dessert tray to the table, will diners find a postage stamp nestled between the quadruple fudge chocolate cake and the crème brule?

Slated for release on March 25, Belgium Post will introduce the first scented and flavored stamps. The stamps depict enticing chocolate images, including chocolate sprinkles, chocolate bars, a creamy chocolate spread, crumbled pieces of a chocolate bar, and a heart-shaped chocolate treat. It’s an innovative chocolate overload from a company that was one of the first to explore the idea of scented stamps many years ago.

Belgium Post’s latest creation will be released as a 5-part stamp set for overseas destinations and comes with a price tag of 6.20 Euros ($8.32 in U.S. Dollars).

If USPS were to develop a flavored postage stamp, what do you think that flavor should be?



  1. A postage stamp for dessert? Any US postage would have to be APPLE PIE! Just as Belgium is related to chocolate America is associated with apple pie. Could we make that stamp ala mode?

    That would be awesome! I bet the stamps would be low in calories too. It would be a great way to enjoy dessert and lose weight at the same time. I’d pre-order a bunch of those if they ever came to market.
