Attention all parents! Call out of work, track down the babysitter—basically, stop what you’re doing and rev that minivan all the way to Costco, immediately. Everyone’s favorite buy-in-bulk retailer is stalking their shelves with vodka ice pops called Skinny Freezers, which basically means summer vacation starts now. Oh, and did we mention they are only 100 calories per pop? It’s time to drop everything and let the warm-weather bender commence.

Skinny Freezers (created by the company Slim Chillers) are the perfect blend of childhood nostalgia and adulting—with flavors like Watermelon Lemonade, Appletini, Cosmopolitan, and Lemon Drop, we are going to need all the freezer space we can get. Each Skinny Freezer contains a hardy 8% alcohol—perfect for a BBQ buzz or beach day booze—just set aside $30 of your leisure budget for a box of 12.

According to POPSUGAR.com, there have been reports that Skinny Freezers don't freeze all the way through due to their alcohol content, but some crafty individuals claim a cooler full of dry ice does the trick, no problem. (Sounds like a lot of effort but it may just be worth it.)
If you aren’t a Costco member and still wish to indulge, you can search for all Skinny Freezer retailers on Slim Chiller’s website. Just make sure your kids don’t mistake their frozen treats for yours. (Related: Megan the Wine Mom's New Smirnoff Sparkling Raspberry Rosé Rundown)
