Salt & Straw Ice Cream teamed up with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (whose holiday alter ego is “Dwanta”) on the new, limited-edition dessert.

Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it, too? Salt & Straw Ice Cream is out to prove the (rather contradictory) phrase wrong with its first-ever ice cream cakes for the holidays.

The Portland-born ice cream business collaborated with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — aka “Dwanta” this time of year — to come up with two flavors of the seven-layer dessert.

  • “Naughty” | Devilishly decadent with rich, coffee-infused chocolate, caramel chocolate fudge, whiskey caramel ice cream, and chunks of salted peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough
  • “Nice” | Inspired by Dwanta’s favorite cheat meal of PB+J banana pancakes, this one is a coconut and vanilla cake with layers of Oregon marionberry jam, rum-spiked bananas Foster ice cream, peanut butter chocolate ganache, and spiced coconut streusel topping

Each cake serves up to 20 people and costs $89. You can order online or buy one at a Salt & Straw scoop shop starting Friday, Nov. 17. A portion of proceeds benefits World Central Kitchen.
