Scratch-and-sniff stamps

    Something smells funny at the U.S. Postal Service. They are releasing a series of scratch-and-sniff icy pops on stick stamps.

    The stamps feature illustrations of frosty, colorful, icy pops on a stick. Today, Americans love cool, refreshing ice pops on a hot summer day. The tasty, sweet confections come in a variety of shapes and flavors.

    Ice pops are made by large manufacturers, home cooks, and artisanal shops. In recent years, frozen treats containing fresh fruit such as kiwi, watermelon, blueberries, oranges, and strawberries have become more common. In addition, flavors such as chocolate, root beer, and cola are also popular. Some frozen treats even have two sticks, making them perfect for sharing.

    The scratch-and-sniff stamps will officially be released on June 20.
