Thanks to $1.99 slices of pizza, great deals and tasty food samples, Costco is already our happy place. But here’s yet another reason to renew your membership: Slim Chillers’ spirited “Skinny Freezers” ice pops are coming back for 2019!
The pops pack 8% alcohol but only 100 calories, and people are going wild for ’em all over again.
Where They Were Spotted
The first sighting of these frozen tipsy treats came from Instagrammer @costcodeals. The post details that a 12-count will cost you around $20, though prices may vary between locations. Due to strict alcohol regulations, some states may not carry them in-store at all.
Why You’ll Love Them
Skinny Freezers return with 4 low-calorie flavors, including Cosmopolitan, Watermelon Lemonade, Appletini and Lemon Drop. Sealed in playful on-the-go packaging, Skinny Freezers remind us of the giant box of fruity Fla-Vor-Ice pops that Mom & Dad used to keep in the freezer all summer long. You’re going to want to keep the Cosmopolitans away from the kiddos, though.
(For another blast from the past, see what summer looked like the year you were born.)
FYI, the Skinny Freezers don’t come frozen from Costco, so you’ll have to chill them yourself. Because the pops contain vodka, drop your freezer to its lowest temperature setting, and be prepared to wait a couple hours.
Where to Buy Skinny Freezers
So far, the returning Skinny Freezer Vodka Martini Pops have only been reported in Wisconsin and California. If you can’t find them in your local Costco just yet, don’t worry. They should be reappearing at the same locations as last year, like Colorado, Nevada and Arizona.
You don’t have to sweat it this summer if you’re not in one of those states, either. They’re in stock at BevMo stores, and a handful of local liquor stores in California (check the map here). For anyone not on the West Coast, you can ship 12-packs of Skinny Freezers to your door thanks to Hi-Time Wine Cellars.
For a drink you can enjoy right now, grab your blender and some ice cubes to make one of these tasty recipes!
