Chris Claffey, Founder

In 2014, the world’s first Adult Freezer Pop was created in Chris & Dana Claffey’s kitchen in rural Philadelphia, PA. Flavored premium wine mixed with the favorite flavors of the past – cherry, grape, and pink lemonade – created something special, something new. Claffey’s Frozen Cocktails were low calorie, non-GMO, gluten-free, kosher certified, and produced in the USA with zero artificial sweeteners. From the beginning, Chris and his team remained committed to making these childhood flavors with a twist – a spike of 6% alcohol in frozen, ready-to-eat freezer pop packages. The journey had begun. In 2015 – from the back of his car – Chris took his expedition throughout the Midwest and began working with distributors, stores, wholesalers & retailers to bring Claffey’s Frozen Cocktails to the market. The first big box brand to bring this new beverage product to the market was Costco, with demand so high that it exceeded the young brand’s ability to deliver the retailer’s P.O.’s – but the demand remained. Hard work and dedication are fueled by one thing – belief. By 2020, Claffey’s wine-based freezer pops stretched across the U.S. as the fastest-selling wine-based product in Walmart that Summer.
