Delicious

The ice cream is the beat around. The staff was friendly, answered all of our questions about the ice cream, and gave us samples to try. They also have a variety of candy if you are not in the market for ice cream.

All Kilwin's ice cream stores are amazing. The ice cream is fabulous and the chocolates and other candies just as great. VERY expensive but good for a splurge. Excellent, friendly service.

Kilwin's has the creamiest, freshest ice cream in town. They make their own waffle cones and filled with one scoop seems more like two large scoops.

Stopped in mid afternoon after touring the battlefield. A large group of school kids came in just before us. Although he was very busy the young man working there did a great job. The ice cream was delicious and we bought some fudge to take home.

There are different ice cream flavors at Kilwin's. The chocolate is very good, very pricey but good. Good place to go if you are looking for something different.

I visit Gettysburg annually and Kilwin's is always a must-stop. I strongly prefer soft-serve but their regular ice cream is one of the few I really like. I get the mint-chocolate chip every time. My wife sometimes gets some of their chocolates and has loved them as well. As long as I'm in Gettysburg, I'll be visiting here as well!
