I don't care if you hate fudge, ice cream, taffy apples or waffle cones....when you walk in this place the scent will bring you back to a simpler time. Nestled in the bustling downtown St. Joseph area you will find lines out the door for ice cream and fudge just about every weekend in the summer months. Fresh made taffy... More

Kilwins ice cream is a Michigan tradition for our family. My favorite kind is traverse city cherry because it oozes my favorite flavor of this state! There are flavors for everyone and you will definitely spend a lot of money finding your favorite. You can tell a great ice cream parlor by the line out front and kilwins is among... More

Went on a Monday evening and there were about 10 people in front of me, which didn't seem bad. We had just gone through the other ice cream place with friends and gotten in and out in about 10 minutes with a longer line. Kilwins had 2 workers working and each would take one order at a time and then... More

We stopped in to get some caramel nut apples and bought several and some taffy. The apples were delicious by the way. We did not sample the ice cream during this trip, but found out where their plant was. The people were very nice, family atmosphere, and loved the Coke machine refrigerator near the door, even though I am not... More

These are the words of a 4-year old little girl. I couldn't agree with her more. Great ice cream and that same little girl may very well talk us into going back tomorrow to try the chocolate and fudge selections.

We choose Kilwin's for dessert every time we're in St Joe. A little known fact about this location is that they will do half-scoops --awesome!! That way you can try more than one flavor of you don't have that large an appetite. I invariably get the caramel sea salt and French silk--soooo good! Toasted coconut is really good as well.
