Fans of Bill the Galactic Hero, the 1965 novel by Harry Harrison, will recall the edible post cards:
Bill was shocked when he saw Tembo read the card one last time then plunge it into his cup of dinner.
"What are you doing that for?" he asked, shocked.
"What else is mail good for?" Tembo hummed, and poked the card deeper. "You just watch this now."
Before Bill's startled gaze, and right in front of his eyes, the card was starting to swell. The white surface broke off and fell away in tiny flakes while the brown insides grew and grew until they filled the cup and were an inch thick. Tembo fished the dripping slab out and took a large bite from one corner.
"Dehydrated chocolate," he said indistinctly. "Good! Try yours."
