Quite Costly

I get the draw. Great smells, the fun of seeing fudge being made, and the long lines must mean this is a great place? A family of 4 will pay $30.00 plus for ice cream. The fudge will cost you over $5.00 for half a slice. I won't deny that the ice cream is pretty good (not gourmet) and the... read more

There are so many ice cream places available in downtown St. Joseph… But the smell of the waffle cones that are made right in the front of the store are the winner for me! The smell can bees smell from outside the store and it just draws you in! The ice cream is phenomenal… As well as their other desserts... More

The family will love this stop in downtown St. Joseph. Ice cream, Carmel apples, fudge, and more...during the summer months the line is typically out the door, but the friendly staff does an excellent job of running folks through. If you catch them at the right time, you can watch them roll fudge or make Carmel apples from the window... More

We stopped in on a Wednesday morning, asked what the most popular flavor fudge was. Informed to buy a caramel apple!? Ignored my question a second time..... We picked out a few individual chocolate pieces & left. Not impressed, not sure if we'd return due to the lackluster customer service.

Came in for fudge and turtles. Left with so much more and smiles all around! From the moment you walk in the door and are cheerfully greeted by their staff to the delectable turtles, chocolate covered pretzels, fudge and ice cream! Oh my yummm!! Can't wait to go back!

We give caramel apples to employees and friends of the business every Christmas. The quality is unbeatable. They must hand select the apples as they are always huge and fresh, and as always the chocolate caramel and pecans are the best available. These make great gifts and they ship them too.

Who could resist - when entering all you smell is chocolate and other wonderful smells. Fun to try to decide what flavor to choose. Always busy is the summer ... but they handle the crowds well and quickly.

I took my wife and two of my kids to Kilwin's to get some ice cream. The first thing I noticed was how we were greeted. The staff was very kind, pleasant, and welcoming. The two people making the fudge answered our questions about the process and how things worked which was actually very interesting. We all got one scoop... More

Nice place to get treats especially fudge and chocolate. We shared a Taffy Apple -- they some in taffy, taffy/chocolate, taffy/Turtle. A bit on the pricey side -- $8 for one apple, but delicious!
