While cracking open a can of hard seltzer is one of the best ways to cool down on a hot summer day, snacking on an ice pop is a close second.
At this point, multiple brands have combined the two to create boozy ice pops, and the latest to join those chilly ranks is the popular seltzer brand Truly, which is launching Truly Lemonade Freeze Pops just in time for summer! The new pops come in three flavors inspired by the Truly Lemonade variety pack: original, mango lemonade and strawberry lemonade. Each pop has 80 calories and 5% alcohol by volume, similar to Truly’s seltzers.
They are available in stores now in 12 packs in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
If you don’t live in one of the states that sell the Truly’s lemonade freeze pops, there are a handful of other brands that have boozy pops you can find no matter where you live.
Pops from Daily’s Poptails come in strawberry, watermelon and green apple. Each pop is wine-based and has 90 calories and 6.8% ABV. The pops are available nationwide at retailers including Target, Sam’s Club and Walmart in 12-pack variety boxes for around $14.99.
You can also find Cutwater Spirits’ cocktail popsicles, which contain 7% ABV and come in four flavors: gin melon, vodka mule, tequila margarita and rum and cola. The brand also has a separate line of margarita popsicles that come in four fruity flavors: lime, strawberry, mango and pineapple.
Bud Light just launched a new line of pops as well, in their new nostalgia-inducing Bud Light Retro Summer seltzer flavors. Available in cherry limeade, blue raspberry and “summer ice,” the variety 12-pack comes in 12-ounce slim cans featuring tie-dye packaging, while the Icicles (what Bud calls their ice pops) are 2 ounces each, also in a 12-pack.
Or, if you’re looking for a pop that will give you even more of a buzz, the brand Drake’s Organic Spiked Ice has a whopping 12% ABV, with still only 80 calories per pop. Available nationwide, you’ll find the pops in mango rum punch, vodka lemonade, watermelon martini and classic mojito flavors.
Are you looking forward to trying some boozy ice pops this summer?
