Chocolate-scented stamps from La Poste in France

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of cacao beans at the port city of Bayonne, the French postal service (La Poste) is issuing a set of stamps depicting scenes from the history and manufacture of chocolate. Best of all: microcapsules in the ink provide a chocolate scent that will reportedly last up to two years. The stamps go on sale on May 25th; 5.60€ for a sheet of 10 stamps.
