Like Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies? How about in ice cream? The Hop does this...and lots more. Fresh ingredients, friendly owners. Nice job!

“Good but not wonderful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Had their ice cream once. Don't see what the hype is about. Ultimate Ice Cream, now in 2 Asheville locations is WAY better. Richer tasting and also tastes more real, as in actual flavor ingredients. The Hop tastes like any other pretty good ice cream but not great.
