Chocolate Stamps from France [postage]

Here's a series of ten stamps from France celebrating chocolate — but more than just looking like blocks of chocolate, they're scented like chocolate. The stamps, issued by La Poste, the French mail service, trace the history of chocolate over ten frames, from Central America to the royal courts to becoming an everyday treat. David Lebovitz got some, and he writes, "lifting it up to my face, sure enough, the stamps smelled like pure, dark chocolate."
