frequently asked.

How boozy is one hardpop?

At 6.9% alc/vol. A couple of pops is like drinking one cocktail.

how long do they take to freeze?

depending on how cold your freezer is, anywhere from 2-5 hours. they're boozy, after all. for fastest ice-ification (that's definitely not a word), take your hardpops out of the box and toss them in the back of your freezer.

How much sugar is in a hardpop?

About 8 grams of sugar per pop.
Hardpops aren't too sweet, FYI. They lean on the refreshing side, just in case that's why you're asking!

How many calories are in a hardpop?

60 calories (not that we're counting). Have a few!

Are hardpops gluten free?

You bet! They're also dairy free (obvi), vegan, and not too sweet.

What kind of alcohol do you use?

Wine! Wine made from oranges, to be exact 🍊This magical vino isn't comparable to the reds and whites you're familiar with. OTSOW has almost no taste or smell, similar to a neutral spirit like vodka. That's why we picked it. Because it's a little quirky and mysterious, but also because it does a damn fine job of making our pops boozy.

why can't you ship to my location?

well that's a bummer... sorry about that. due to rules and regulations beyond our control, we're limited to certain states and zip codes at this time. (USA only. Sorry Canada).

**Currently we don’t ship to the following states: AK, AR, GA, HI, KS, KY, ME, MI, MA, MN, MO, MT, NE, NC, ND, SC, SD, TN, UT, VT, WV, and WY. we look forward to hopefully working with these states in the future!

what happens if my order was returned?

a carrier will make up to 3 attempts to complete your delivery. because hardpops contain acohol, a signature/age verification is required.

if an order is returned due to the inability to deliver/the carrier has maxed out on delivery attempts, we'll refund you for your order, minus the shipping and a $20 return/restock fee.

my hardpops arrived damaged, or was damaged in transit

oh boy, we're really sorry to hear that... please send us a photo as soon as possible. email the photo(s) of your damaged hardpops to within 5-7 days of receiving damaged goods. we will send over a replacement order if the product is available, or a full refund will be processed on damaged items.

can I exchange or return my hardpops if I change my mind?

we're not able to offer exchanges or accept returns. alcohol comes with a lot of rules, and unfortunately that's one of them.

however, if there's an issue with your hardpops, please do let us know! email us any time at

why was I charged sales tax?

Hardpops is located in Southern California, which means that the purchase and product fulfillment is made in CA. regardless of shipping destination, we have to apply CA sales tax. (sorry Oregon!)

why is there a charge from 'speakeasy' on my credit card?

Don't panic! Speakeasy is the third-party distribution company who helps us get our hardpops in your hands. shipping alcohol is tricky, but our partners at speakeasy are pros. they handle the technology, warehousing, and order fulfillment for us.
