Cool off with Frozen Treats, a U.S. Postal Service® stamp issuance featuring frosty, colorful, icy pops on a stick. The tasty, sweet confections come in a variety of shapes and flavors.

This booklet of 20 scratch-and-sniff stamps showcases Margaret Berg’s whimsical watercolor illustrations of ten different designs. The stamps are printed with a coating that evokes a sweet, summer scent. The words “FOREVER” and “USA” appear along the bottom of every stamp.

Today, Americans love cool, refreshing ice pops on a hot summer day. Modern frozen treats are available in many varieties. Ice pops are made by large manufacturers, home cooks, and artisanal shops. 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. Some frozen treats even have two sticks, making them perfect for sharing.

Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamps with Leslie Badani.

Frozen Treats is being issued as a First-Class Mail® Forever® booklet of 20. These Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
