The next time you’re in Costco’s frozen section and your children are begging for an endless box of Otter Pops that turn their mouths a concerning shade of blue, don’t forget to re-stock on a frozen treat for yourself, too. Costco’s coveted Slim Chillers “Skinny Freezers” — popsicle versions of your favorite boozy beverages — are back in stock so we know summer has returned.
These adult ices made with premium charcoal-filtered vodka and a splash of vermouth are labeled as bar favorites such as “Cosmopolitan,” “Watermelon Lemonade,” “Appletini,” and “Lemon Drop” inside your Costco store. At only 100 calories, they’re less caloric than a frozen banana or a dish of ice cream. Plus, at 8 percent ABV, they only have about half a shot worth of alcohol each, meaning you can chill with your Skinny Freezer poolside without worrying about turning your pool situation into a lit-uation.
Don’t have a Costco card? If you live in California, Slim Chillers can be found at most BevMo stores. Mark stocking up on these adult popsicles, or any popsicles really, as one of the 50 things you need to get done before summer.
