Review: FrostShot “The Frozen Liquor Shot”

Review: FrostShot “The Frozen Liquor Shot”


Great googly moogly, how does one approach discussion of FrostShot? Put simply, it’s an Otter Pop with booze in it: A plastic tube filled with sugary goo which, when frozen, becomes like slushy ice. You squeeze it out directly into your mouth.

Only Otter Pops can’t get you drunk.

They also taste a lot better than FrostShots, which are, to put it extremely mildly, an acquired taste. At just 10 percent alcohol, one goes in feeling FrostShots will be very mild, but that’s not the case at all. These things are overpowering with wild artificial flavors, and those seeking refinement and subtlety would be better served by mixing up a batch of Jello shots. One presumes the club kids will have a different response.

I will say that not all the flavors are created equally — the cherry (Cherry Bomb) is the least offensive, followed by lime (Extreme Mojito). But the passion fruit (Caribbean Passion), pineapple (Tropical Explosion), and raspberry (XXX Martini — yeah, I don’t get that one either) flavors I found wholly unconsumable, their chemical/fruit flavors nearly knocking me down right in my kitchen. As such, I can’t offer much in the way of a meaningful rating, but I’d have to put them all on varying parts of the (distant) lower half of the bell curve.

    Lauren – What we have here is the application of a little rule I like to call “Different strokes for different folks.”

    I have tried these at an event they can’t give these away for free.. its disgusting. It only appeals to young kids. Thats the goal for the owners i am sure. Think about it will any grown ass man or woman sit there and suck on one of these at a club or a party? WAY too much sugar and they dont’ specify the type of liquor. The chemicals in these and the calories alone will make you regret ever touching it.

    Before these guys there were plenty of of drinks like these and they all failed.. there is a reason. When you gamble on making money on selling alcohol to kids in a stupid way like this, karma will kick your ass. It is VERY obvious the reviews above are from friends and family considering they all came one after the other.
