Scratch’n'Sniff Credit Cards -- April Fool's Day, 2005
Virgin Money of Australia announced the introduction of barbecue-scented scratch'n'sniff credit cards:

"The scratched 'aroma' will embody the spirit of Australia, reminding owners of a freshly barbequed snag. Virgin Money expects the new card to be particularly popular amongst Aussies travelling overseas who are seeking a mouth-watering memento to remind them of home."
