Commemorating Jane Austen

The Royal Mail UK is commemorating the 200th year of the publishing of Jane Austen's beloved novel Pride and Prejudice with these stamps - and I was lucky that a friend remembered my love for Jane Austen's books so having a set above my computer :o) Each of her novels got a stamp and it does not get any more English than that - always thought that it is nice to use national icons on stamps when sending the old fashioned mail.

Well those things are normal - but wondering what the Belgians were thinking, when launching stamps with chocolate taste?? Maybe that could have been useful here a couple of years ago, but now all stamps are self-adhesive.
