Diabetics, beware.... Or just take more insulin before you enter, as the confections are flowing from the intoxicating aroma alone!!! Get some heavenly ice cream, hand made fudge, pralines to die for. Need I say more! Two tips, on a hot day, don't wear white and bring wet wipes if you're eating ice cream. Why? You ask. You're going to... More

This is a fantastic small shoppe in downtown Wilmington area. It has homemade ice cream, fudge and candies. The ice cream is absolutely divine! Great flavor selections and pricing. Always busy but service is awesome, so it goes fast. This business is a local treasure. You will not be disappointed in anyway. Just desserts and treats, no food.

Great chocolate and caramel corn. Friendly staff and boutique atmosphere. The chocolate bars make a great souvenir or gift.

This place can't be beat for three items, ice cream, fudge and candy. A large selection of ice creams for everyone's enjoyment. The cone itself is superb. This ice cream is top quality and it is hard to pass by without wanting to stop for some ice cream any time of year. Chocolate candy products are first rate and as... More

I'm not fancy,I like my milkshakes just plain ole chocolate. But, I do like my milkshakes, a lot. And this one was excellent. I tasted the Peruvian chocolate ice cream and it was really good, not a sweet as regular chocolate, and with a little hint of spice. Ended up going with the regular chocolate for a milkshake, but if... More

Home made cones right there on the spot. You can smell them coming around the corner. I have seen close to 100 people in line at this place! I love their ice cream. They have lots of flavors to chose from. You wont regret this stop!

I'm not a huge ice cream lover but the line of people wanting ice cream will, can, and has gone out the door. I wanted to see what it's all about so I waited in line one day. I didn't like the fact that you can't get a small, kiddie size cup so I ordered the size available. I don't... More

Kilwins definitely has some yummy ice cream! My favorite is the toasted coconut. If you like coconut and chocolate, its amazing. My husband says they have the best butter pecan ever. Prices are a little steep, we had 4 singles and it was almost $18. Whew! So, its a yummy treat, occasionally.

Very tasty ice cream and the homemade waffle cones are a real treat. Well priced and very generous on the portions. Still love Jeni's in Nashville and the Midwest more though...

I just can't resist this place when I am downtown. I am sure glad I only visit Wilmington about 6 times a year as I would certainly gain girth. SOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOD!!!! You have to make room for this in your daily calorie count....
