(TODAY)– Americans can peel their stamps and smell ’em, too, with the U.S. Postal Service’s release of its first scratch-and-sniff stamp collection June 20.

Sadly for sweet and sour food lovers there aren’t any pickles in the bunch, but customers can choose from one of 10 First Class Mail Forever stamps that feature frozen treats for summer, with each priced at 50 cents. Margaret Berg of Santa Monica, California, created the watercolor illustrations for the stamps.

In a press release, the USPS said Americans love cool, refreshing ice pops on a hot summer day and listed several types of popular popsicles, such as those with fresh fruit and even the double-stick variety for sharing. All are included on the new stamps, with each design featuring two popsicles in a variety of colors and flavors.
