“Fantastic Ice Cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Kilwens is right on the strip downtown Gatlinburg. It is a sweet shop with homemade fudge, ice cream, caramel krispy treats, caramel apples, caramel logs etc. Many of the treats are made right in plain view of the customer. We come to Gatlinburg every year in March and a trip to town isn't complete without a salted caramel ice cream waffle cone (the waffle cone is made fresh as well). The salted caramel ice cream is the best rendition I have ever tasted. I believe this company hails from the U.P. but I am happy to enjoy it in the south every year. There is many a "creamery" in the Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg area. Save your time and $$$ and go to Kilwens. You won't regret it!

“Great Ice Cream and Sweets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

We stopped in several times during our week stay in Gatlinburg. There is a wide variety of sweets offered at fairly reasonable prices. Not sure if it should be the #1 "Restaurant" in Gatlinburg, but its a must visit. We personally loved the ice cream, the marshmallow puffs, and the rice crispy treats. We sampled the fudge which is also good, but $$$ which is to be expected. Stop in and try some as you are walking the strip.

“Superb caramel apples!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We purchased a small variety of caramel apples while in Gatinburg, and the 'sea salt carmel apples' from Kilwin's were BY FAR the best! Plus lots of samples, 'to die for smells' and friendly service!

“Yummy candy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Not sure why this is number one for restaurants in Gatlinburg. But if you love any kind of brittle. This is a must stop. They make their own fudge, caramel corn, which by the way is delicious as well. But we return every time for their brittle. They have peanut, pecan, cashew or our personal favorite a four nut version. Just the right combination of sweet and salty.
