  • PLEASE NOTE! DELIVERY AFTER DATE OF ISSUE One of two 2020 Christmas stamps (NVI Julpost (Christmas mail)). The stamp presents home-made ’knäck’ toffee, a traditional treat when celebrating Christmas in Åland. ‘Knäck’ has been made since the 1800s, at least, and consists of equal parts of syrup, sugar and cream that simmer in a saucepan. Chopped almond is often used for flavouring before it is poured into tiny crimped paper moulds.
