Belgian Chocolate Stamps

   I managed to get my hands on some of the chocolate smelling and tasting stamps that BPost were printing! I mentioned them in the 1st of March's Bookmark Dump ^^ Thank goodness for a Dutch boyfriend or I'd never have managed to navigate that website.
   They actually do smell like chocolate, too! I was surprised! Well, chocolate and paper, at least, but chocolate is definitely there. I'm so happy to have gotten these! I'm not an avid collector, but if I see interesting, pretty, or important stamps, then I get them and add them to my collection. And so I've not tasted these yet, and I don't intend to.

EDIT: you can get these stamps outside of Belgium: I've noticed a lot of people are ending up on this page after searching something like "can I get the Belgian chocolate stamps if I'm not in Belgium" - well, you can. I am in the UK. However, they only accept orders through their website if you're in Belgium. You can, however, order by email, but they will require your credit/debit card number as well as expiry date - the same info they'd need if you bought on their website anyway. It's perfectly safe, however. The email address is as follows: PHILATELY@bpost.be If you get in touch with an enquiry they'll let you know the details they need, if the stamps are still available.

  1. Oh, I've never heard of these! Wonder if the scent lasts if you actually posted them...!

    1. I think they do, they were designed that way, at least!

I do read every single comment, and I will try to respond where I can. If you have an important question about my blog or my shop, however, then you might be better off contacting me directly by email. Thanks so much for reading my blog!
