I stopped in for a Caramel Apple. They packed it for take out and did it up beautifully so it wouldn't get damaged in transit. The apple was absolutely delicious and very fresh. The caramel was generous. The store was tempting all around with all that chocolate. They were doing a brisk business.

If you're from the Midwest, you know it's rare to see Blue Moon ice cream on the coast! Kilwin's is a chain from Michigan, so I was excited to see they had this flavor. It tastes like blue raspberry meets bubble gum - hard to explain. My family all tried different flavors, with peanut butter pie being the best!

I spent $61 on stale chocolate. Do not recommend purchasing anything here at all! We purchased both prepackaged items and out of the case. It was inedible. Sadly did not find out until we were back home :(

Initially drawn by the wonderful smells emanating from the open door we had to visit and peer inside. Our grand-daughters enjoyed the chocolate covered marshmallow and rice Krispy treat. Our (adult) son enjoyed the oreo delight. What a wonderful treat after lunch after a walk down the boardwalk

We love Kilwin's and when we walked past one upstairs at Johns Pass my wife knew I wanted to stop.Ordered my usual 1 scoop in a cup and loved every second of it. It was warmer than usual this past week here and their ice cream was perfectly timed.

We stopped in for a quick frozen treat after lunch and were glad we did. The gentleman working there asked us what type of ice cream we liked and gave us samples accordingly based on what he thought we would like. There are also candies and chocolates made right there (including homemade caramel!)

I'm not a huge ice cream fan but hubby is...so we stopped in one afternoon. Oh My Goodness! Amazing. Good variety of ice cream and many other treats. Something for everyone. We shared a turtle sundae with salted caramel ice cream and it was by far the best I've ever had (and I'm from the dairy state...so I know ice... More

The smell of the fudge and caramel apples will draw you in from the boardwalk. Excellent ice cream as well as the apples and fudge.
