“Ice cream fudge & much more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Well where to start !! The I cream is amazing and I can tell you I tried a few of the flavours because we went there a number of times while we where visiting Wilmington,the brittle is one of those you just can't put down ! The covered apples seem a little on the pricey side however my daughter in law returned several times to re perches and the mud fudge is to die for

“The best homemade ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I had the signature turtle ice cream and it was awesome. My wife actually liked what I got better. All the candy looked great and they have a ton of fudge. I wanted to get some fudge too but she wouldn't let me. Something about doing an extra million sit-ups next week. A must try if you are downtown.

“Awesome waffle cones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

As you walk up to shop you can smell the heavenly waffle cones as they are coming off the waffle maker...yum. We had a double scoop of chocolate and the salted caramel in the waffle cone and it was definitely plenty. The best part is the cone stays crunchy all the way to the very last bite. And you can't get any fresher than that. Definitely will come back.

“This is our fourt Kilwins we have eaten at and they re awesome.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Get the New Orleans praline pecan in a homemade waffle cone. That is all I have to say about that. I have eaten at the one in Gatlinburg,Tn, blowing rock, Nc, pigeon forge, Tn, and now Wilmington, Nc. They are great.

“Ice Cream and Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The Salted Caramel Ice Cream was a favorite as well as the Wilmington Pie. The server was kind enough to explain her favorite to us and advise us that 1 scoop is a very "healthy" scoop. She even split 1 scoop in to two flavors!

While others said it was pricey, we didn't feel so. It was A LOT of ice cream for the price!
