CHICAGO — The United States Postal Service is slated to debut scratch-and-sniff stamps Wednesday.

The popsicle-themed forever stamps “are printed with a coating that evokes a sweet, summer scent,” according to the USPS website. No additional information on the scent was available.

California artist Margaret Berg was tapped to illustrate the watercolor popsicles. A book of 20 stamps costs $10, or 50 cents per stamp. Forever stamps never expire; they can be ordered online.
