“Highlands, NC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Our group of 9 visited the Highlands, NC Kilwins May 2013. It was a highlight of our family vacation! The employees were gracious and efficient. The ice cream was exquisite! Anytime we come across another Kilwin's we will definitely patronize it!

“Expensive but Worth It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I purchased several goodies from Kilwin's on my last trip. Salt water taffy, three different kinds of fudge, some chocolate covered Oreos and pretzels, and a frozen mocha. Everything was delicious, but is a bit expensive. We visit Highlands regularly and always stop in for a treat here!! It's hard to resist, you can smell the fudge outside the building!

“INCREDIBLE Caramel Apples and other sweets and treats!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you've never been to Kilwin's, you've been missing out!! If you like caramel apples, but avoid getting them because they're messy, this is the place to get them!! They not only taste incredible, Kilwin's slices the apples upon request; so, they're so easy to eat!! The apples are made with fresh Granny Smith apples, covered with caramel, and my personal fave is the turtle pecan apple (caramel, pecans, chocolate!)! Oh my! It's to die for! They also have great coffees, ice cream, fudge, prailines, etc.! There's a nice patio outside to sit and enjoy your goodies, as well as, indoor seating. Sometimes on the spring or summer weekends, there is live music on this patio. Also, their bathrooms are always nice and clean!

“Very yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Kilwin's is filled with delicious looking treats. We had the caramel apple, which they cut for us. It was probably the best one I've ever had. The caramel was more butter than sticky and not to sweet. I'm craving another one already.

Sweet tooth delight. This is a candy store with freshly made pralines, candy apples. Chocolates galore. Wonderful as a treat.
