Don't miss the best ice cream in Gettysburg! Our suggestion is the 'Salted Carmel' and on this trip the Peach with chunks of fresh peach.

Okay, there is fudge, various chocolate confections that are artfully displayed and smell sooooo good! Oh, and the ice cream. Well, my favorite is pistachio and boy was their ice cream chock full of pistachio nuts. Get a little cup today, or in a cone, and just go nuts with the yumminess!! Really friendly staff, too.

I was very impressed with the look of the shop but when I went it, it was AMAZING with the great smells and look of the interior. We all had ice cream cones and the scoops were generous and the taste was absolutely delicious. I had a hard time finishing two scoops, it was so large ! We purchased fudge... More

The fragrance of fresh chocolate and fudge wafts through the gettysburg streets calling you to Kilwin's. Stepping through the door brings a choco-induced euphoria that will never be matched. Beautiful small tasty goodies draw your eye in every direction. Truffles here, Salted carmels there. You know not where to look as your brain trys to decide which of these little... More

We were sent here by the owners of the Raphael B&B.... I could kiss them both! On Wednesday Kilwins has a BOGO special OMG a "single" scoop is really two scoops of ice cream!! And you can get two different favors. The salted caramel ice cream is to die for!! The person waiting on us was not the most friendly... More

We stopped by a few days ago to purchase some homemade fudge to bring back to my mother-in-law...she absolutely adores it. Staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Kilwin's also sells home made ice cream. Although the ice cream is a tad pricey, the portions make up for it...has to be the best ice cream I have ever tasted. It's creamy... More

This was the best caramel popcorn with nuts I have had in a long time. My sons kept trying to get mine after they ate theirs. A great stop for anyone with a sweet tooth.

My kids agree ... perhaps the best ice cream we ever had. Kilwin's Tracks (sort of like Moose Tracks but so much better) is in a category all its own. Adorable interior. Just a one-minute walk from the Dobbin House makes it a perfect place to stop for dessert. Prices were a little steep, but did I mention it was... More
