Huge Man, Dedicated Father and Now Ice Cream Entrepreneur Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has just announced his second collection of holiday flavors for Salt & Straw, an artisanal ice cream company based in Portland, Oregon. One flavor in particular is a nod to Johnson’s vacation alter ego, Dwanta Claus. (I hate it but I’m going to let it slip because Johnson really seems like a nice guy.)
The flavor in question is Dwanta’s Teremana Spiked Eggnog, an ice cream made with the actor’s Teremana Tequila, plus Amountillado sherry, nutmeg and a hint of salt. Eggnog flavor is available on its own, but you can also take it as part of the Dwanta Claus “Naughty, Nice & Spiked” five quart pack. The pack includes two of Salt & Straw’s signature flavors (Double Fold Vanilla and Chocolate Gooey Brownie), as well as something called I Saw Mommy Kissing Dwanta Claus, a flavor that includes chocolate chip cookie dough and caramel fudge. milk chocolate swirled in whiskey ice cream. based. The Rock’n Around The Christmas Tree completes the pack, a spruce-inspired ice cream filled with frosted brownies, raspberry jam and red and green glazed cherries. The pack is Johnson’s second collaboration with Salt & Straw after investing in the ice cream business in 2019.
The 2020 pack is available online for $ 65. According to a press release, the team is donating $ 1 from every pint of eggnog sold through Dec.31 to Chef Jose Andres’ Restaurants for the People program, World Central Kitchen. Teremana Tequila will also match every dollar donated. “May your cheat meals be merry, enriched and bright this holiday season!” Johnson said in the statement. Well, that settles the matter. Who am I to deny the will of The Rock?
