People are freaking out about this 100-calorie vodka popsicle — but what's actually in it?

Slim Chillers isn’t just a cool name for a band, it’s about to become the must-have item on your summer party list.

Summer means a lot of things to people: warm days, BBQs, fireworks, ice cream, and of course, otter pops. So, thankfully, there’s now an adult version — and it’s available betwixt the free samples at Costco.

The frozen alcoholic treat comes in four flavors: Cosmopolitan, Watermelon Lemonade, Appletini, and Lemon Drop, and each sweet popsicle is only 100 calories.

They probably won’t knock you off your set either. The pops are 8 percent alcohol, which is about half a shot, so trying to slurp down more to get a faster buzz will probably result in a brain freeze.

But what’s in Slim Chillers’ Skinny Freezers ice pops? The ingredients are actually pretty simple: premium eight-times distilled, charcoal-filtered Vodka, a splash of vermouth, and natural flavors. 

Of course, most people who are willing to eat a couple of vodka pops aren’t usually too concerned with what, exactly, is in the ingredients list.

Sadly, only a few states will be able to cop their boozy summertime treat. According to Slim Chillers, you can find them in select Costco locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado. They may be in a Bevmo store as well, but you can check out the nearest location here.

If you aren’t one of the lucky states, fear not. It appears you can also order Slim Chillers online at Hi-Time Wines — but there is a warning that shipment may be late due to high demand. That said, you can just as well enjoy a Slim Chiller by a roaring fire in December.
