Hand dipped ice cream with MANY flavors

Great place to get an ice cream cone to eat while walking on Main Street. Many choices. I had Georgia peach.

Incredible selection of chocolate candy and ice cream. First time I hve ever seen a chocolate-covered Twikie. They offered dark chocolate and milk chocolate varieties.

Best hand made chocolate I've ever tasted, I wish I had more of a stomach to try more things but I guarantee you will never see a place and as well known for their chocolates in the little town of highlands. Definitely a favorite for someone with a sweet tooth!

We love going to Kilwins. Our kids can get the sorbet and we always get the salted caramels! Family friendly and a must every time we are in town!

It's a cute place on the inside and they have a lot of candy options. I very much enjoyed the birthday cake ice cream! It has always been one of my favorites!

REAL ice cream that is dense and sweet. All real ingredients and they make all of the fudge and candy in house. Don't come to Highlands without stopping in!

Kilwins sells ice cream and candy and it's OK but a bit pricey. Smallest cup is $4.35 and the ice cream while tasty, seems more on the average side to me.

Even though the temps were cold, we could not resist a hand scooped ice cream. Yum. Pecan Pralines were so good. Right in the middle of Town Square. What a delightful little place.
