We loved the place! Lots of ice-cream varieties and it is all good. Tried fudge too but I am not a fan of it - too sweet.

The Best Fudge - ever - and did I mention ice cream? The smooth milk chocolate & walnut fudge had me from the first bite. They even have a fudge with the hard-to-find black walnuts. This is a MUST for me every time I visit Blowing Rock. I know they have other locations, but sitting on a bench, across from... More

We always go by & get ice cream & fudge! After a day of shopping. You have to go try it! If I lived closer to this place I would be in at least once a week! Best ice cream ever in a waffle bowl! :)

We had kilwins ice cream twice on our trip. They have many flavors and were patient letting the kids sample a few. We took our ice cream to the park across the street one night and sat out front and people watched the other. Both were nice evenings. The ice cream is just different, better than most, I can't describe... More

The best ice cream and any flavor you want they have. One of the best smelling places you will ever be at.

Blowing Rock was the first Kilwins we ever visited (many years ago) and we love going back each time we visit Blowing Rock. We think this is the best ice cream we've ever had. It's homemade!!! They have a great selection of flavors. If you're not in an ice cream mood.....try their fudge. Equally awesome!

Too cold for Ice Cream (though it looked great).. being on diets ... we "snuck" a different slice of fudge for a late snack in our hotel room each nigh. We walked back to the hotel to justify the fudge! LOL ... very friendly staff, fun to watch them make the fudge. Was pleased they were open until 10pm each... More

Our family enjoyed the ice cream, waffle cones and candy from Kilwins. It's a popular spot that could use a few more chairs...especially during a winter time visit. Have to agree, that prices are a bit high.

My wife, niece and I just visited this Mecca for ice cream and candy. We didn't realize what a find this was until we took the first bite of the homemade New Orleans praline pecan ice cream. This has to be the best ice cream I have had anywhere in the world including Rome Italy. They also have all kinds... More

This is a must visit if you go to Blowing Rock. The smell of the fresh made waffle cones as you walk by will lure you inside. Once in the store you'll be greeted by over 40 ice cream flavor choices. Choose one, you won't be disappointed. Skip the candy, it's pretty generic, but the fudge is a sure bet.... More
