Hurley says he originally created the pops because he always used to love daiquiris, margaritas and vodka martinis, but didn’t love the way they made him feel.
“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,” he says. “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.”

Each pop is made with “premium 8-times distilled, charcoal filtered vodka,” according to the company’s website.

Slim Chillers also sells apparel and other goodies, such as their “Blenderfulls,” which come in four different flavors and are meant to be a healthier solution to a cocktail mixer. Each pouch is sugar-free and contains zero calories, and can be mixed with your favorite spirit in a blender or on the rocks.
