two spoons - ultimate no more (Asheville)

mark | Apr 12, 2010 06:48 AM

just a bit of info for ultimate ice cream fans in asheville. two spoons has switched vendors and is now using greenwood ice cream out of georgia. unfortunately, i can't say it's as good as ultimate.

my wife and i tried 6 flavors (vanilla, chocolate, mint chocolate chip, cherry, espresso chip and tart lemon sorbet) over the past week, and we just weren't wowed. the espresso one was the best, the sorbet was overly sweet and downright boring, and none seem as creamy or flavorful as ultimate. also, serving size has been skimpier, while prices remain the same.

bit of a disappointment as we were looking forward to their reopening and our neighborhood ultimate fix. while i wish two spoons well, i guess i'll revert to haagen-dazs from the grocery for the quick (cheaper) fix and resume cross-town treks for the good stuff. at nearly $10 a pop for our normal order (2 split singles in waffle cones), the new stuff just doesn't cut it.
