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....

The best sweet treats in town! They are always packed but the line moves quick. The salted caramel ice cream is to die for! Their candy and fudge are amazing too! A bit overpriced, but so worth it.

I love Kilwin's chocolates and fudge since I first had some in Gettysburg, PA. So when I saw there was a store in Wilmington, NC, I made sure to make a stop there. The staff was friendly and attentive but it wasn't until I tried the fudge that I bought that I realized they sold me old fudge. It was... More
