We visited Kilwin's a couple of times during our week-long trip -- once for ice cream and once for chocolate. While a bit pricey, if you're in the mood for either chocolate or ice cream, this place won't disappoint. There are several ice cream places in the area -- try them all, but I bet you'll return to Kilwin's.

Felt as if I was back at home at a carvel or Baskin robins. Best ice cream is on block island! Blueberry waffle flavor wasn't bad

I was skeptical of this ice cream/candy parlor since it looked to me like a tourist trap. I assumed the ice cream would be subpar but was surprised to find exceptionally good ice cream! I always judge an ice cream parlor by its chocolate and here the chocolate flavor really tasted like chocolate - not just sweet cream with a... More

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.
