Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is kicking up the festive food factor this holiday season with a seasonal ice cream collection that includes a boozy new flavor.
The former wrestler-turned-actor became an investor in one of his cheat-day favorites, Salt & Straw ice cream, late last year, then developed his own line of tequila, Teremana, earlier this year. As a creative partner to the ice cream brand, Johnson decided to take his special tequila blend and mix it with some amazing flavors from Salt & Straw to come up with a holiday ice cream collection known as the Dwanta Claus Naughty, Nice & Spiked pint five-pack.
Salt & Straw tweeted about the holiday pack, and though one of the flavors is spiked, this lineup includes a little bit of something for everyone:
Included in Dwanta Claus Holiday Pack:
🎅 I Saw Mommy Kissing Dwanta Claus
🎄 The Rock'n Around The Christmas Tree

These five decadent handmade ice cream flavors can be purchased online for $65 via Salt & Straw. Each flavor has a holiday flair, including the adults-only flavor: spiked eggnog. For every pint of Dwanta’s Teremana’s Spiked Eggnog sold, Salt & Straw and Teremana will each donate $1 to World Central Kitchen.
“Dwanta Claus is back to spread delicious holiday cheer with my friends at Salt & Straw and it’s getting boozy,” Johnson said of the collaboration, according to People. “We had some fun creating our new Teremana Tequila infused flavor and more importantly, we are honored to support the incredible work done at World Central Kitchen and their efforts to end hunger and poverty.”
The Dwanta Claus Naughty, Nice & Spiked pint five-pack includes five different flavors.
Dwanta’s Teremana Spiked Eggnog is a creamy frozen custard infused with an “oaky vanilla from Teremana’s Reposado,” according to the product description, with a splash of amontillado sherry, nutmeg and a pinch of salt.
I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus is a whisky-flavored ice cream that brings peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough together with a milk chocolate caramel fudge swirl for a sinful holiday dessert that will certainly be a guilty pleasure.
If you love brownies right out of the pan, then Chocolate Gooey Brownie is the flavor for you. Chocolate brownie batter gets folded with marshmallow fluff and mixed in with fudge ice cream.
Salt & Straw calls The Rock’n Around the Christmas Tree one of Dwanta’s favorite “cheat day” pints. It includes gooey brownies with buttery frosting blended into Pacific Northwest spruce ice cream. Then it all gets decorated with raspberry jam and glacé cherries. It sounds like a fruitcake no one would refuse.
The base flavor is known as Singing Dog Vanilla, but Double Fold Vanilla gets its name because they use twice as many vanilla beans in their extract to pack a flavor punch that will be anything but bland.
Salt & Straw ships ice cream in an insulated box packed with dry ice so your pints stay frozen.
Cheers to that!
