I have never experienced a Kilwin's before my visit here. Visually it is incredible and the smell within is intoxicating to someone with a sweet tooth. I had difficult choosing but thought the turtle fudge was something both my husband and I would enjoy. We bought one slice which clocked in at $12. I thought the edges felt pretty brittle... More

We bought fudge, bark and turtles. They were all delicious! We ate the first batch and returned the following day for more. A great chocolate shop!

I love this place but I always get the same thing: toasted coconut ice cream. It's delicious. Pieces of toasted coconut lightly coated in dark chocolate in coconut ice cream. Yum!

All of their ice cream has caramel already in it according to an employee I talked to, but if you like caramel you'll love this place. I had the cheese cake ice cream with melted fudge on top and my wife had cookies n' cream with melted fudge on top. Both were very good. They will also let you try... More

If you are looking for a tasty treat, this is the place to go! We had ice cream, which was delicious...the scoops are huge, so keep that in mind! I couldn't decide on flavor, so got two scoops and it was more like four scoops! Priced good, too! My husband also picked up a bag of caramel corn, it was... More

portions are too big. They charge $6 for a regular scoop and force you to throw away over half of a single scoop unless you want a stomach ache... or get fat.

There is much to choose from if you like ice cream. I selected the peach and the pieces of real fruit were delicious. It was very creamy and refreshing on a hot day in August. Enjoy!

Kilwins was a heavenly air-conditioned oasis while walking on Market Street on a 93 degree day! Little did we know the glorious treats that awaited us inside! I think I can honestly say that they serve the best ice cream I have ever had! I had coconut ice cream, but it also had shaved dark chocolate incorporated into it. It... More

What's not to like about fudge, candy, and ICE cream? The taffy Apple selections will drive you crazy. Hard to pick just one.

Popped in on a hot day for something sweet. Large variety of expensive candies, we ended up getting 2 ice cream waffle cones and it was $11. They were large and very good on a hot day. They make the cones on site fresh daily.
