Issue date 25 May 2009

La Poste France has issued a miniature sheet commemorating 400 years of Chocolate's arrival in Europe in 1609, La Poste has created a block of chocolate-scented stamps.  

The block of 10 stamps (€0.56 each, for €5.60) is designed to look like a bar of chocolate and even smells like one. The stamps depict scenes from the history and manufacture of chocolate. 

The ink used on the stamps contains microcapsules which provide a chocolate scent that will reportedly last up to two years.
