stamps: soda fountain favorites

Image from:

The U.S. Postal Service celebrates soda fountain favorites this summer with the new Soda Fountain Favorites stamps. 

Each of the stamps showcases one of five illustrations: a double scoop ice cream cone, an egg cream, a banana split, a root beer float, and a hot fudge sundae. 

By the late 1800s, Americans had long since begun drinking carbonated beverages for their pleasant taste, rather than their supposed health benefits. Soda jerks, the skilled operators of the nation's bustling soda fountains, offered a wide variety of syrups to flavor their product.

The Soda Fountain Favorites stamps will be issued as Forever® stamps.
