We tried TP this afternoon. We all agreed that TP beats OL hands down.
Better, creamier and more natural tasting. It was cleaner inside and we didn't feel smothered by the employees. Easier parking also.
I have heard that their cupcakes are excellent but we didn't try them this time.
I will not be going back to Orange Leaf. We have found a home at Twisted Pineapple.

I heard that the cupcakes were so rich that you had to split it with someone. I'm still looking forward to trying them. I had the orange yogurt at OL that left a weird aftertaste. I thought it was the artificial sweetener but someone said they used real sugar so I guess it's just some chemical.

Anyway, I liked Twisted Pinapple the best and someone said they're locally owned which is a big plus.

Orange Leaf is a franchise that is owned by a local person as well.

Actually Orange Leaf is owned by a group out of Lexington that owns many of them acros the state. No local Pulaski folks involved.

Personally, I hope they both succeed. That's why towns like Lexington have more to offer. There are both franchises and mom and pop shops. Somerset needs to support both and not view them as mutually exclusive.

Ive had TP and I wouldn't describe it as creamy. It has ice crystals in it.

Personally, I prefer that a business not be locally owned. Locals have done nothing for me so I don't feel obligated to support them! Just saying.

I have been to Twisted Pineapple 1 time and will not be going back!!! The yogurt was okay, nothing special but the price is insane!!! They should be ashamed to charge so much!!!

not much difference in the price. TP has a much better taste to me and it is important to me that it is owned by a local person.

I'm not sure that being "locally owned" is as important to me as it once was. The economy has certainly made me look for the best bargains. I do find TP a better bargain.

Think both are good. Actually thought TP was a little Better but after my visit to OL today don't think so. Product is too close to call. It's easier for me to go to OL because of location. Oh we'll both are good!

To me TP doesn't even compare to Orange Leaf. Twisted Pineapple's yogurt is closer to ice crystals and seems to melt way too fast. I have been eating at OL ever since they came into Lexington and prefer them 10 to 1

I went to TP once, i wasn't impressed. Haven't been to OL yet..still to busy for my liking. It's all a matter of taste.. To each their own!

Anyone who says Twisted Pineapple is better than Orange Leaf is straight up retarded. I'm sick of people in this town who are obsessed with crappy '' local '' businesses and won't support companies the rest of the civilized world utilizes. Orange Leaf's yogurt is extremely creamy and doesn't leave that nasty sour taste in your mouth. TP is extremely frozen and has ice crystals in it. And news flash....TP yogurt is Honey Hill yogurt that they toss into their machines. Nothing special.

See, I got that aftertaste with OL orange yogurt but not with TP's pinapple cheescake.
I guess tastes vary, but for me TP is head and shoulders above OL and locally owned means money that's locally spent.

haven't been to OL, and have only been to TP once.
the froyo was very very good, i'm not gonna lie, but I wouldn't go back just bc of how absolutely rude the employees were. and for no reason, I wasn't the least bit rude to them, they literally acted like they had something personal against me. never met them in my life. OL from now on it is.

Tried TP today and have to say I was not impressed. Their facilities were much nicer and cleaner than Orange leaf, and the personnel were pleasant and friendly. Unfortunately, the frozen yogurt was disappointing at best. As others have said, it had lots of ice crystals in it (yes the full fat version) and it was so bland it bordered on tasteless. I'm not a toppings person, but from what I saw there was nothing out of the ordinary. I also found that the levers that control the flow of the frozen yogurt were so stiff and difficult to move that I ended up with more yogurt in my cup than I wanted. That's not cool when you're charging by the ounce. I didn't try the cupcakes, and likely won't because they were so top heavy with frosting and decorations they looked just way too sweet. I know TP has a loyal fan base, and I'm glad they do. They seem like nice people. I just don't believe I'll be a repeat customer.

Locals provide jobs and spend money back into the local economy. They pay school taxes, city and county taxes. I'm sure they have a home and car which means they probably used a local bank to finance. Local insurance agents, buying clothes, food and gas locally. Whether you want to acknowledge or not local business (mom and pop) put their money back into the community.
