Costco stole the show last summer with its “slimming” vodka ice pops. This year, the nation’s favorite wholesaler is following up with another line of frozen boozy treats. Everybody, say hello to wine popsicles.
Made by Pennsylvania-based Claffey’s Frozen Cocktails, the popsicles come in six flavors: Cherry Lips, Punk Lemonade, Ice Blue, Modern Mango, Grab Apple, and Purple Party.
At six-percent ABV, they’ll get you buzzed, but there’s no danger of an afternoon hangover if you decide to enjoy more than one. (Something you can absolutely do, given that each flavor contains just 90 calories.)
Claffey’s makes the ice pops using something called “Other Than Standard (OTS) orange wine.” Not to be confused with skin-contact wines made from white grapes, OTS is made from actual oranges and is a common ingredient used to add alcohol to food products.

The frozen pops were spotted on Costco’s shelves by the popular Instagram account @thecostcoconnoisseur. At the time of writing, it’s unclear which locations currently stock the popsicles as they don’t feature on Costco’s website. But they are available online through Caffey’s and select liquor retailers.
