American postal workers are upset over the pending end of Saturday mail delivery. That's because the U-S Postal Service is not making a profit.

We're not sure if the Belgian Postal Service is making a profit or not.... but they have figured out a way to get people to buy stamps.

Make them taste like chocolate...

New stamps that smell and taste like chocolate were put on sale Monday.

Customers buying the chocolate stamps were mainly collectors, but some tourists also took the opportunity to try out the news stamps.

One Belgian stamp collector says the French stamps from 2009 smelled better, but the Belgian stamps taste better.

Five different designs have been chosen to represent these new chocolate- flavored stamps.

Sheets are sold at a cost of eight US dollars each.
