Delicious chocolates

Make sure to stop and try some chocolate. We got some dark chocolate truffles and they were great. They are a bit pricy but worth the cost when you taste the chocolate!

Great ice cream and homemade waffle cones! It was delicious. The fudge was really good too. I liked just walking in the store, which I did without purchasing anything twice before I actually made a purchase of an ice cream cone.

I had the Michigan fudge ice cream and absolutely loved it. However, I had asked for a turtle sundae-they were out of the waffle cups, pecans and cherries. So, while I did enjoy my sundae, it was a bit irritating to pay almost $8 and get less than what you had asked for. Overall though, I did enjoy my experience... More

Kilwin's is a fun place to cool off while shopping in St. Jo. It's fun to watch them making waffle cones or fudge or some other yummy thing in the window and the ice cream is good. Lots of flavor choices and some of the nicest people working. If you like caramel or candy apples you can get enormous ones... More

Very good ice cream and candy. The chocolate and peanut butter ice cream was my favorite and they have delicious waffle cones.

I hate to be a naysayer, but I don't really get what all the hype is about Kilwins. Maybe it is what we got there. Hubby got a strawberry shake which he said was no better than a DQ shake (except it cost $10!!), and I got a kids size cup of heavenly hash ice cream ($4). There was nothing... More

This ice cream and sweets shop is right in the heart of the shop district of downtown St. Joe. It's a short walk from Silver Beach and the St. Joseph River and Pier, so everything a tourist or local would want to see is close by. We went on a weekday and got ice cream in the handmade waffle cones.... More

Store has an awesome old timey feel, and the smell in there and when you walk by is heavenly! Great sweets and ice cream/waffle cones with a large variety of flavors. Lines can get pretty long in the evening time, but worth the wait. We never leave St. Joe without stopping there.

Try walking past Kilwin's when they are making waffle cones, the smell is amazing! Great selection of hand dipped ice cream, and the chocolates are delicious! Carmel corn is super. Must visit if you are in St. Joe.

We had some ice cream and fudge. Both were sweet and creamy. Service is too notch and the lines are king but go quickly. Especially on a sunny weekend day and night.
