For the first time, ever, the USPS will have scratch-and-sniff stamps, and they will don the sweet smell of ice cream pops.
They’re officially called the Frozen Treats Forever stamps, and will officially release June 20. This is such a big deal, they’re even going to hold a ceremony for the stamps in Austin, Texas.
The photo illustrations of the ice cream are watercolor paintings by artist Margaret Berg, and the stamp’s scent is described as a “sweet summer scent.” Not sure what that means, but it must be something fruity, like Jennifer Lopez’s perfume.
As with other forever stamps, the $10 book will come with 20 stamps, so there’s no scratch-and-sniff upcharge, thankfully.
If you’re really into stamps, you can and can pre-order them right now on the USPS official site, or you can just wait for them to show up at the post office.
