Chocolate-Scented Stamps Released in France

20090617-chocolatestamps.jpg

Last month France's postal service La Poste released limited edition chocolate-themed stamps to celebrate the 400th anniversary of chocolate's arrival in France in 1609. Each stamp in the ten-stamp set illustrates a different point in chocolate history. Even better, they smell like chocolate! If you're in France, buy them at the post office or online.
