FDC: Gourmet Snacks from Taiwan

This FDC from Taiwan features Gourmet Snacks.

The cancellations show the year in the Minguo calendar: 102. The Minguo calendar started in 1912 (Gregorian). For details, check Wikipedia.

Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain here recently, and the cover suffered a bit of water damage, but it is still a great item.
