Ice cream flavored stamps

Keith Olbermann on MSNBC's Count Down reports that Haagen-Dazs and Austrian Postal Service have teamed up to launch a series of ice-cream flavored stamps.

According to other published and broadcast reports, they infuse flavors like Cookies & Cream, Macadamia Nut Brittle and Strawberry Cheesecake into the adhesive on the back so you get to taste the flavor.

For every 10 scoops of ice cream purchased, a book of stamps is distributed.

Meanwhile, UPI is reporting that judges in the Vermont ice cream-maker Ben & Jerry's new flavor contest have ruled out pepperoni pizza with anchovy swirl as a valid entry.

Sour cream ice cream with onion and potato chips didn't make the cut either.
