Ice Cream in Asheville Area

I'm heading to Asheville for the first time next month and one thing I like to find when I travel are good local ice cream shops. Do I have any to look forward to in the Asheville area? Thanks!

    Ultimate Ice Cream on Tunnel road (aka 70). Slightly hidden behind a Pomodoro's restaurant.

    The name is accurate. you need look no further. Ginger is my favorite followed by anything caramel-esque.

      Ultimate - without a doubt! Their Highland Black Mocha Stout ice cream is scrumptious

        Ultimate is the ultimate! Anything chocolate (or mocha) there is to die for.

            Thanks for all of the recommendations. Wait, I mean THE recommendation. Is this a chowhound first? A thread with NO disagreement? This place must be good. I can't wait.
