Roald Dahl is laughing in his grave as the Belgian post office has launched a new set of stamps that smell and even taste like chocolate.

Over 500,000 chocolate flavored stamps have been printed on this special type of paper that is imbued with the aroma of actual cocoa.

The BBC reported that a team of fragrance and taste experts from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland collaborated to create and then perfect the chocolate stamps.

These things were infused with real chocolate in a factory like just any other chocolate bar.

Now imagine if the American postal service had been the first to debut this invention. The entire line would be gone in just four days of the first month of its arrival.

Good thing Belgium found this golden ticket before we did.
