Good ice cream ever on a cool evening. Wish I had gotten a chocolate flavor instead of the turtle. Plenty of selection. Loved the texture...not too hard. Also sell fudge (sorry no vanilla) and chocolates. Both looked good but did not induldge.

They sell homemade fudge there too! The ice cream was delicious. The place is small so you have to eat outdoors.

This place is a little expensive - an average size ice cream cone is more than five bucks - but the stuff is terrific and worth the little extra. What I like best is their home made candies. Fabulous. Everything is made right there in the store and is really the best. Great little shop.

A good place to stop for a sweet treat! The fudge is good and the apples look amazing. They also have ice cream.

Love ice cream? You need to stop here. Just an FYI - you can get two half scoops of different flavors in one cup. It is a bit pricey like everyone says, but it is very good. They also sell chocolates and fudge. I can vouch for the chocolates but not the fudge. The chocolate was very good.

After visiting the town square and enjoying all the re-in actors we stopped here for some ice cream and it was well worth it. I had the apple pie ice cream and it was very good. The service was good and the staff was very friendly and courteous. Nice little spot in Gettysburg.

Yes, we stopped in Kilwin's 3 times within the 2 days we were visiting Gettysburg! The Pumpkin pie ice cream is amazing but we ALWAYS stop in for a fresh bag of popcorn!!! It's freshly popped and only $1 for a large bag!! However, this time, they had the PUMPKIN WALNUT FUDGE. Holy cow! BEST fudge I've ever tried!!! I... More

After an earlier, particularly bad, experience at a restaurant nearby, we wandered into this place and had our faith restored in genuine American hospitality and delicious food - well two ice creams anyway. They were superb and the young lady serving was charming. We were reminded of the 'two for one' too, so not only delicious but cheap! Can't say... More
