Postal stamps have always been fun. They come in different designs, shapes and....smells?

The U.S Postal Service has announced that for the time ever, they will be issuing scratch-and-sniff stamps! They hope to evoke the sweet scent of summer. There will be 10 different stamp designs which will each feature a watercolor illustration of two different ice pops on a stick. AMAZING!

There will be one scent for all of the stamps and the secret smell will be unveiled when the Postal Service issues the stamps on June 20, according to U.S. Postal Service public relations representative Mark Saunders.

While the scent hasn’t been revealed yet, the press release mentions several different flavors: “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.”


This is awesome! Maybe we can start sending letters and mail a little more often now that it'll be more lively. What are your guys' thoughts? What scents would you like to smell on your postal stamps?
