WE got to St. Joe in the afternoon. We decided to go into to Kilwins and we decided on a small dessert. We got the child's portion of ice cream. Perfect! We didn't want to spoil our dinner!

Just walking in and smelling the treats is worth it. They have fresh made fudge and candies as well as lots of choices of ice cream in a cup, cone or waffle bowl!

Kilwin's ice cream is a must stop any place you find one! Took some Chicago friends there last night and enjoyed walking around downtown St. Joseph.

Kilwin's chocolate isn't my favorite however it is still a nice clean place to visit and fun watching them make fudge. HOWEVER THE ICE CREAM is another story altogether. Sampled the rum raisin which was delicious but the Lemon Pie ice cream cone was a wonderful chunk of heaven! This little store is downtown with other nice places to shop.

It's difficult to walk past this place due to the tempting smells and the knowledge that this chain is always reliable with service and quality. The ice cream is excellent also.

We hadn't anticipated going into Kilwins while visiting St. Joe. But, the aroma that wafted outside the store to the sidewalk drew me in! The fudge selection was perfect, and the buy two slices (roughly 1/2 pound each) and get one free sealed the deal. Packaged in the traditional box with several little wooden knives and napkins enclosed, we hit... More

We visited on our first night in St. Josephs and loved the shake and apple pie sundae. It was so good that we returned the following night and Got another one. They have Delicious ice cream, fine chocolates, camel and specialty apples and numerous other desserts. There are many outdoor seating options in St. Josephs

As soon as I saw this listed as an attraction, I knew we had to go. It's a quaint ice cream shop that has a host of goodies. The smell alone wafting into the streets will make you want to go in. My whole crew had the ice cream, and it was sooooo good! I sampled at least 8 flavors,... More
