Ice cream chain Salt & Straw has announced its holiday ice cream lineup for 2023. The Portland, Oregon-based company releases a festive collection of ice cream flavors every year for December. This year's five-flavor lineup captures the cheerful nostalgia and cozy vibes of the season. The unique lineup this year includes three returning favorites and two brand new flavors ranging in taste from boozy eggnog to grandma's gingerbread cookies.
One returning flavor is Dwanta's Teremana Spiked Eggnog, which derives its inspiration from actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's holiday alter-ego Dwanta. Amongst the new flavors this year is Toasted White Chocolate & Peppermint Almonds. This collaboration with SkinnyDipped Almonds uses a rich blend of baked white chocolate and dark chocolate peppermint-coated almonds for a nutty, sweet, holiday flavor. Salt & Straw's diverse array of flavor choices encourages customers to sample and find their favorite flavor. The collection launches on Friday, November 4 both in stores and online for nationwide shipping.

Making Seasonal Flavors Even More Festive
To celebrate the return of the holiday flavors, Salt & Straw is offering a free scoop when you purchase an in-store gift card for $30 or more. The brand is also offering free delivery from November 24 to December 10 to make it easier to try the holiday lineup. With this free delivery, you could get a taste of the Gingerbread Cookie Dough flavor inspired by the co-founder's very own grandmother's recipes. The ice cream blends sweet molasses and subtle ginger spice to capture the holiday flavor.
Salt & Straw has even created an ice cream flavor for all the vegan and lactose-intolerant people out there as well. The brand's Chocolate Sugar Cookie Dough is a dairy-free scoop made with recycled barley milk and captures the iconic flavors of one of the most famous holiday cookies. Rounding out the flavor roundup is the Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache, another flavor inspired by the co-founder's Grandmother's cooking. This salty-sweet delight features chocolate ganache-covered almonds folded into a delicate vanilla flavor. If you're interested in the festive flavors at Salt & Straw this holiday season, be sure to sample them before they're gone.
