Kilwin's ice cream and candies are always top notch, whatever city you are in at the time. We all had different flavors and bought some candies, too.

The ice cream and fudge was delish!! We had a rich chocolate ice cream waffle cone, a butter pecan ice cream cup and some chocolate fudge. Yummy!

Ice Cream was just what we needed after a boat ride and shelling on a hot July day. Also bought taffy which we tried later and it is very good.

walking on the boardwalk and eating waffle cones what more can you want? Ok the sunset wasn't too bad either under the causeway to the beach!

Probably the best ice cream I've ever had! Skip the other places and head here. Caramel apples and the fudge looked amazing, too!

Absolutely wonderful , it was $12.50 for two ice cream cones with one scoop ofm ice cream each. but one scoop is more then enough for one person! Also they let you try as many as you want so you can make sure you get something you love! No doubt some of the best ice cream I've ever had!!!!!
