Kilwin's is always a final stop for us before leaving Gettysburg! Their fudge is the best ever. Nothing like it out there!

What's not to like on a warm September evening about a yummy ice cream cone. The only problem was deciding which interesting flavor to try.

I stopped in here on my way out of town for some ice cream and left with a bag full of chocolate. lol. Everything looked amazing. I ended up trying the ice cream and some chocolates as well as picking up some gourmet fudge for my family. Everything was delicious and the staff was friendly and helpful!

Stopped in on a 100 degree day for some ice cream. Very good but bring your appetite. The regular cone is massive. Too much for older people and small children, but nonetheless very good.

As a request from relocated locals (best of friends), a stop at Kilwin's was necessary. After getting to the store and seeing the choices of chocolates I couldn't help myself but to dig into my pockets for candy money(real of course) the smell, sight, and the darn sample made me a prisoner to the store's variety which is fantastic.

We always go to Kilwin's when in Gettysburg. Pay a little more, but well worth it. Try the Vanilla, but you can't miss with any other flavor.

No evening is complete without a quick trip into Kilwin's the aroma grabs you and doesn't let go. We rounded off many of our evenings with a delicious sweet from them. I recommend the Caramel Pecan Pretzel stick...so yummy. The Apple Pie Caramel Apple is pretty amazing as well. I can't say enough. Delicious sums this shop up. And watching... More

Visited this place for ice cream cones and a few chocolate truffles. Service was very friendly! Ice cream was delicious--try the peach ice cream!! My husband enjoyed his chocolate truffle! The only reason I'm not giving it the full 'stars' is because the ice cream cones were a little pricier than other places we visited. But, ice cream and service... More

Visited late (approx 10 PM) one evening for ice cream for our family of four. They served me pleasantly and attentively even though I believe they were about to close. Somewhat pricey. Recommend chocolate/caramel/cashew ice cream--all ice creams are very rich and creamy. Samples and "kids' size" available upon request. Chocolates also available for purchase. Observes seasonal hours--check in advance.... More

Kinda pricey but very good! Would go back again. All different types of ice cream and the waffle cone is delicious.
