DIELINE AWARD WINNERS REVEALED

Forget coal; this year, you're getting the Rock. 

In a festively delicious collaboration, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has teamed up with the small-batch, chef-driven ice cream company Salt & Straw to create a line called "Dwanta Claus." 

Notoriously, the Rock is known as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time in addition to his stellar acting career, and, with all great personalities come great cheat meals. So, taking inspiration from his favorite indulgent meal favorites, each ice cream flavor was thoughtfully imagined.

Flavors such as Naughty Nutty, Tipsy Toasty Teremana Pecan Pie, Dwanta's Teremana Spiked Eggnog, and Chocolate Gooey Brownie come in the pack, so it's clear that the Christmas spirit isn't lacking. 

Each pint's packaging is red or white with labels that are prominently labeled either "naughty" or "nice." Furthermore, the typography is whimsically inspired yet entirely legible, and at the bottom is a sweet illustration of the Rock adorning an adorable Santa hat. It's notable that while the pints are full of cheer and spirit, they aren't overly done or cliche. With just enough detail and charm to incite interest, the packaging is as tasteful as the flavors within.

The website is filled to the brim with witty copy, including, "As Dwanta always says, "Don't cheat yourself, my friends—treat yourself!" Moreover, $1 per pint sold through December 31 will benefit World Central Kitchen's Restaurants for the People program, with Johnson's Teramana Tequila matching every dollar donated. 

If there's anything that the Rock and Salt & Straw have proven, it's that you can be both naughty and nice at the same time.
