The ice cream was good but the fudge is the best I've ever tried! We brought home caramel, sea salt chocolates for my Inlaws and they are delicious! They have so many yummy treats to choose from! If you're looking for something sweet after din or a treat to bring home this is def the place! Try there signature chocolate... More

Every time I see a kilwins, I have to step inside. The sheer aroma hitting your nostrils as you walk by puts you in a trance and pulls you in. They always have delicious ice cream!

As always, we enjoyed the ice cream, and brought home 5 pieces of fudge - the Turtle and Pencuhe are faves. Always nice to walk past the Kilwin's and smell the waffle cones baking…and to have one that never leaked out the bottom was so nice - clearly they're well made.

My favorite spot for hand made candies and confections in Newport. My favorite is the chocolate covered oreo covered in toasted coconut. It is like a Girl Scout Samoa cookie amped up to 11. Great gifts and friendly staff. Ice cream is also delish.

If you love ice cream and candy and fudge and bonbons and homemade ice cream cones, as well as a myriad unusual flavors, look no further than Kilwin's of Newport! Festive from the moment you cross the threshold, you will feel like a kid again, unless you still are under the age of 12! There is usually a line, but... More

I had an very good cup of ice cream this afternoon from Kilwins. It wasn't expensive and the store was really clean.

We stood outside the window watching a man mix a very large amount of brown semi solid liquid on a slab on marble. At first we didn't know what we were looking at, but quickly realized he was making fudge. We were fascinated and once he finished the man waved us in and gave us samples. We were hooked and... More

The smells from outside were enticing. We stopped in a few times during our long weekend stay for ice cream & chocolates. So much to choose from and so little time.

Great chocolates! You get to watch them make a lot of it in the front! So much fun! Not badly priced either! Even have fun boxes like garden set made of chocolates! Lots of unique items!
