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.

Stopped here to pick up my son's favorite pumpkin fudge and discovered the best apple cider! I love the fact you can watch the candy being made.

Other fudge varieties okay but not great. Caramel was fresh and okay provided your dental work is secure. Will not go back.

The staff was very friendly giving me tastes of assorted fudge and ice cream before I made my choices. The fudge is melt in your mouth yummy.

We went to Kilwin's every day on our weekend vacation in the Highlands. It is a popular place in October, yet the staff did a great job keeping the line moving and they were consistently friendly.

I love their pralines. But I was disappointed. The first day we went in I got 6 of them. They were wonderful. Two days later I went in to get some for gifts and bought 24.

This was not our first time visiting Kilwin's, but a trip to Highlands wouldn't be complete without ice cream from Kilwin's. The servers are always very nice and personable, and the ice cream is delicious!
