HOUSTON— The U.S. Postal Service announced the release of its first scratch-and-sniff stamps Wednesday.

The stamps feature illustrations of colorful, icy pops on a stick.

Each of the 10 stamp designs includes two different treats. The words “FOREVER” and “USA” appear along the bottom of each stamp.

Customers have 120 days to obtain first-day-of-issue postmarks by mail.

The public is encouraged to submit stamp suggestions on the post office website.
