According to the now-viral Instagram post, these delicious frozen popsicles, which contain only 100 calories and 8 percent alcohol per pop, were spotted in a Costco outlet in Madison, Wisconsin. The Cosmopolitan, Watermelon Lemonade, Appletini, and Lemon Drop-flavored adult pops are available in 12-packs for just $19.99 and netizens are scrambling to get their hands on them. Some of them are even being nice enough to let fellow boozy popsicle fans in on where they're stocked. Apparently, all it takes is Vodka Martini pops to have people be nice to each other on the internet. Who knew?!

So how did this popsicle manifestation of all our summer dreams come to be? Speaking to PEOPLE, the mastermind behind the adult frozen treat, Phil Hurley, revealed that he initially created them as a means to indulge his love for daiquiris, margaritas, and vodka martinis, without having to face any of their unpleasant side effects. He said, "Even after just a few fruit margaritas, I always happened to notice my bellybutton inching further away from your spine, and my pants starting looking like leggings. 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."

The company's website sheds more light on the origin story of their alcoholic popsicle, stating: Slim Chillers was formed on the premise that it is not only possible, but also highly probable, to have an adult frozen Cocktail without all the unforgiving calories AND still make it taste great as well! Slim Chillers spent the greater part of a year striving to create the perfect frozen Cocktail that would appeal to a discerning Palate; delivering lower calories, great mouthfeel, and fantastic flavor.

It continues: The creation of these new types of Cocktails and mixes were no easy task. Of course, we wanted lower calories but what the alcohol in our Martini Freezers…we certainly didn’t want to utilize inferior 'Malts' or 'wines' for what we felt truly was to be a premium beverage." They are extremely picky with their ingredients as they only use "8 times distilled, Triple Filtered, Vodka; along with select, carefully balanced flavors and ingredients to create the best tasting Frozen Vodka Martini in 4 outstanding flavors!

Unless you're someone who'd gladly make a trip to Wisconsin for Slim Chillers, you could try your luck with BevMo stores and participating local liquor stores in California. Seeing as how kids are going to out of school during their summer breaks and running around like fricking Energizer Bunnies, I'm pretty sure tired parents are going to clean these stores out of the popsicles in no time. Residents of California, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado might also want to keep their eyes open when visiting their local Costco stores since they have previously been sold in some outlets there. Or maybe just order them online at Hi-Time wine in 12-packs.

Despite them selling out like hotcakes (or the cooler boozier equivalent of hotcakes in this case), some have complained about how Skinny Freezers don't freeze all the way. However, some nifty alcohol lovers have found a neat solution for it. Apparently, sticking them in a cooler full of dry ice works like a charm to enjoy them in their finest form. Although it does sound like a lot of work, we don't really mind putting in the effort since they truly are worth it.

Meanwhile, Skinny Freezers aren't the only alcoholic product offered by Slim Chillers. They also sell 'Blenderfulls', which is apparently "a convenient new way to enjoy your favorite low-calorie cocktails." Available in four different flavors, they are meant to be a healthier solution to a cocktail mixer. "Just add four cups of ice, four shots of your favorite tequila, blend, and enjoy a low-calorie frozen Slim Chiller Margarita," the company suggests. Or if you prefer your drinks on the rocks, you could mix "with equal amounts of water and tequila to taste then simply pour over ice." I have a feeling we're going to have a very boozy summer this year. Cheers!
