Your United States Postal Service is Making America Delicioso Again with a new set of Forever® stamps on sale Tuesday. Sadly, the self-adhesive stamps require no licking to keep on sticking. [Gallery below.]

The USPS explains:

Delicioso
Forever 49¢ | 6 Stamp Designs

With the release of the new Delicioso Forever® stamps, the U.S. Postal Service celebrates the influence of Central and South American, Mexican, and Caribbean foods and flavors on American cuisine. This book of 20 stamps features six dishes from an array of Latin American culinary traditions that have found new life and variations in the United States.

The Delicioso stamps feature bright and playful illustrations of tamales, flan, sancocho, empanadas, chile relleno, and ceviche. The books include four of the tamales and flan designs and three of each of the other designs. The names of the six dishes appear in a festive font above each mouthwatering image. Each illustration was created by applying multiple layers of acrylic paint to textured boards, using sandpaper to reveal the hidden layers and give the designs a worn, vintage look.
