Boozy Pushup Pops Are Perfectly Nostalgic End-of-Summer Treats


Nothing said summer fun in the 70s and 80s like sweet ice cream dripping down your arm from a pushup pop, and now that we’re all grown up, there’s no better way to say farewell to those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer than with a pushup pop laced with coffee and booze!

Peekskill PR and branding guru Matthew Selsky of MattyEaats has joined forces with Julia McCue, owner of Tarrytown’s Horsefeathers restaurant to create nostalgic, eye-opening, happy treats for adults and adults only. “This has really been a passion project,” says Selsky.

Starting this Sunday, two flavors of big people pushup pops will be behind the bar at Peekskill Brewery and Horsefeathers, giving new meaning to the term, “bottoms up.” One is called Matty’s Sour Pebbles, and it’s made with Peekskill Brewery’s simple sour ale, lemon sorbet, and Nerds candy.

The other, Matty’s Yabba Dabba Doo, is a creamy, dreamy blend of (ready?) fairtrade organic Brazilian coffee from Bucci Coffee Company in Cortlandt Manor, half and half, brown sugar, Nutella, Bullet Bourbon, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

You can’t have just one, says Selsky, and, really, why should you? We’re all adults here. And, at $8.50 a pop, you probably won’t let much drip down your arm.
