Kilwin's has fantastic caramel apples. They are the reason why we tried it. If you like chocolate this is the place for you. I tried several of the treats over a couple of days. My favorite item by far was the ice cream. The ice creams are tasty and the fresh made waffle cones put it over the top.

We were looking for a good ice cream spot. Instead of Ben and Jerry's we tried Kilwin's. It was certainly busy enough but for making their own ice cream we expected more.

We bought dessert here every day (and sometimes more than once a day) we were here over a three day period. I am especially addicted to their Caramel Apples and their Sea Salt Caramel ice cream, but we had at least a half-dozen other things and ALL of them were ridiculously good. I think one of the secrets is the... More

The coconut ice cream alone is worth 5 stars. I get it every time in a delicious waffle cone. Sometimes I also get a salted choc. caramel apple to go. They always have free samples out, the staff is friendly and the line moves quickly. It's not inexpensive, but the ice cream portions are huge and totally worth it. Love... More

Candy and Ice Cream Nirvana!!! My girls went berserk over the ice cream. They have a large assortment of flavors and several different types of cones. The candy is super fresh and the fudge is totally amazing - especially the toasted coconut. The shop is super clean and the service is wonderful. It does not have a chain store feel.... More

A little on the pricy side but there was a good selection of quality ice cream. The chocolates and fudge looked amazing - a good reason to return!

This place is right on the main drag in downtown newport and is always busy. They make their candy, chocolate and fudge right in the window and also serve ice cream. My girlfriend got a cup of ice cream and I got a hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was made from scratch using an espresso machine to steam the milk... More

It's a little pricey - but so worth it! We stopped in to purchase a random selection of chocolates to take back to our hotel with us. Everything was spectacular!

I am a sucker for caramel apples. I purchased one and carried it around with me all day long. I selected the caramel apple with the salted chocolate. It didn't melt in the heat and even by the next day was still in perfect condition. There was a bit too much salt for my taste but it was delicious anyhow.... More
