Kilwin's has great freshly made candy and other treats. The downside is that they are pretty expensive. While the treats offered at Kilwin's may arguably be worth the money, don't go there expecting to get a big bang for your buck, so to speak. They also offer a variety of hard ice creams that are very good and more affordable... More

My brother loves superman ice-cream and they have it! The ice-cream is decadent. Watching them make fudge is fun for both young and old. It's air conditioned which is important in Gettysburg during the hot summer months.

I always stop here for ice cream. It is one of the few places in the region that has Super Man Ice cream! Their portions are large, so make sure you bring your appetite. The staff is helpful and friendly. You can also see fudge being made if you get there at the right time.

We stopped here while dining in the area at the Dobbin House and we enjoyed our visit. They have some good candies here and we left with some small bags. If you're in this end of town stop in at this place for some treats!

When you want a little something sweet. There is nothing like homemade ice cream. More flavors than I can count, so hard to choose which one. Their sea salt caramels and chocolates are to die for. Buy just one or buy a box.

The ice creams are very good and they have a good selection. Only a couple of benches inside that fit 4 people. They have fudge but no vanilla flavor, sorry not a good seller. I recommend it for a quick stop for ice cream or fudge.

I got a sample of three different fudges at first. I ordered the New Orleans Praline ice cream. I have been to other locations so I know it's great.

Not cheap but good tasting genuine ice cream. Many other types of sweets to select from if you don't like ice cream. May need to plug the parking meters so prevalent around the town of Gettysburg itself so be forewarned. And just a couple places to sit inside and one bench or so out.
