A Product CostCo Have Been Selling Is Under Investigation

The sale of vodka icy poles are being investigated amid concerns the product may appeal to children.

American company Slim Chillers sells the ‘Vodka Martini Skinny Freezers’ in the liquor section of CostCo stores in Melbourne and Canberra, with some available online.

The ‘frozen cocktails’ come in different flavours including Cosmopolitan, Watermelon Lemonade, Lemon Drop and Appletini.

The Foundation of Alcohol Research and Education is concerned the icy poles are too similar to Zooper Doopers.

The foundation has complained to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liqour Regulation in December and described them as ‘dangerous product’.

But Slim Chillers have replied saying they had taken ‘every precaution’ and are working with the rules and regulations.

A VCGLR spokeswoman said: “This matter is currently under consideration, therefore it is not appropriate to comment further.”
