First Review by cringer

just wow - Edit

literally amazing, have had several
Flavors from here as they rotate and use a variety of "milks".
I first had the cookies & creme coconut milk in hendersonville as it was being sold by a 3rd party and it was a little icy but I wanted to give it another shot and I'm so glad I did.
I've had the raspberry chocolate made with hemp milk which is probably my favorite atm, but the strawberry made from pepita (pumpkin) seeds is a close second, and the chocolate from bananas is also good.
I got a pint to go and mixed the strawberry and the banana chocolate and with tax it was something like $6.24, so only slightly more than So Delicious or one of the chains and so much better (even though I still love them).
The have an easy labeling system which lets you know which flavors and toppings are vegan and friendly staff. Second location in West AVL has the same review.

Pros: variety, ICE CREAM, easy parking

Cons: none

WOW - Edit

I had the chocolate almond milk vegan ice cream and it was absolutely to die for. I honestly thought they made a mistake and served me real ice cream when I tasted it. It was that creamy and realistic (or at least to what I remembered). If you are a coffee person get your ice cream with an espresso shot poured over it. I was in absolute heaven here and will definitely come back the next time I am in Asheville. They had I think four or five vegan flavors and there was a lot of people ordering them which made me happy.

They also have new vegan coconut whipped cream!

Pros: So yummy

The best vegan ice cream I have ever had. - Edit

I went to the creamery for their one year celebration and was able to get a free scoop. I took a taste of the Sierra Nevada flavor they had but ended up getting a bourbon banana flavor. I cannot even describe how awesome this ice cream was. The flavor was so interesting and complex, rich and creamy. I was in heaven. I am also so happy with how experimental the flavors were!

Great selection! - Edit

Love love love this place!! So many vegan ice cream options with a wide variety of milk bases. They also offer vegan caramel sauce and coconut milk whip cream with lots of other toppings. I had strawberry balsamic coconut milk ice cream sundae style and it was so delicious. The staff was super friendly and fun. Can't wait to go there again!

Pros: Wide selection, Friendly staff, Creative flavors

the hop - Edit

Very pleased with the vegan ice cream selections. Had the chocolate banana ice cream in a cake cone. They also offer vegan shakes. Considering I only get vegan ice cream a few times a year this was a nice surprise. Thanks the hop for having vegan options.

Just okay - Edit

While I really appreciate an ice cream place having multiple vegan options (they had about 8 when I was there!), the three flavors I tried really just tasted like flavored ice. The staff was very friendly, and knew exactly what was vegan on the menu. If I was in town longer, I might give it another shot and try something different.

Pros: Lots of options, Friendly/knowledgable staff

Cons: Weak flavors
