May 22 (UPI) — The U.S. Postal Service announced Monday it will issue its first set of scratch-and-sniff stamps next month.

The set of 10 frozen treat forever stamps will be issued June 20 during an unveiling ceremony in Austin, Texas. They will be made available to pre-order online to be delivered shortly after, USPS said.

In addition to illustrations of colorful frozen treats on a stick, each of the 10 stamps will feature a unique smell.

“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,” the Postal Service said.

The stamps were designed by Art Director Antonio Alcalá and Leslie Badani, and feature the art of Margaret Berg.
