We stopped in late on a weekend night looking for a little something sweet. We bought a small box of chocolate and a small box of marzipan fruit. They were delicious and we made them nibbled on them each night when we returned to our hotel room! Everything in the store looked delicious, including the freshly made chocolates and the... More

I have enjoyed Kilwin's in many cities, and I love their chocolate and fudge. What I do not love is their prices. Their prices are very high, and they do not offer their customers the ability to buy smaller slices of fudge. So you end up buying a huge block of fudge that you probably won't (or at least shouldn't)... More

We stopped in for ice creams on the one sunny day in February. The salted caramel is fabulous! The next day we went back to buy fudge, yummy!

Walked over to Kilwin's as I could smell fresh coffee! Got a cup to go (my friend got a hot apple cider), along with (oh the choices!) a double-chocolate bonbon for me, and a pumpkin-cream whoopie pie for my friend! The woman behind the counter was great...noticed our looking over the ice cream choices, and immediately asked which ones we... More

I have been to the Kilwin's in Charleston - so, I decided to go to the one in Newport because the caramel apples are to die for. I was so disappointed in this store. The clerk was rude and snapped at me when I asked what was in a specific ice cream flavor. She rolled her eyes when my friend... More

We consider ourselves ice cream connoisseurs and Kilwins came in as ok. Nothing special. Tried Banana fudge pie and cappuccino chocolate chip. Holy expensive!!!! Can't say I would go back.

I braced myself knowing the chocolate would be expensive, but for $30/pound (if I recall correctly)...eeeks, too much, but I didn't think the ice cream would be as expensive as it was. I did splurge on a small dish of vanilla with their chocolate ribbons throughout and it was amazing. My husband had plain vanilla that was definitely not worth... More
