Costco's 100-Calorie Vodka Ice Pops Are Back for Summer
Your summer just got a bit boozier.
The alcoholic frozen treats come in four flavors, Lemon Drop, Appletini, Cosmopolitan, and Watermelon Lemonade, and are intended to help you kick back with a cold drink, guilt-free, Slim Chiller’s creator Phil Hurley tells PEOPLE.
Hurley says he originally created the pops because he used to love daiquiris, margaritas and vodka martinis, but didn’t love the way they made him feel.
“Even after just a few fruit margaritas, I always happened to notice my bellybutton inching further away from your spine, and my pants started looking like leggings,” he says. “My primary goal was not to eliminate the sugar, but lower it to a point where you could still enjoy your cocktail, but with a lot less guilt.”
Each pop is made with “premium 8-times distilled, charcoal filtered vodka,” according to the company’s website. Currently, they are available in BevMo stores, participating local liquor stores in California, and in select Costco stores across California, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado. If you don’t live in any of these locations, you can also order these boozy treats online at Hi-Time wine in 12-packs or individually.
Once news hit that the Skinny Freezers were back on shelves, social media users were quick to express their excitement, with one man admitting they were going to ruin his summer diet plans to try out the popular ketogenic diet.

Slim Chillers also sells apparel and other goodies, such as their “Blenderfulls,” which come in four different flavors and are meant to be a healthier solution to a cocktail mixer. Each pouch is sugar-free and contains zero calories, and can be mixed with your favorite spirit in a blender or on the rocks.
