We probably drop in at Kilwin's every other week for an ice cream. The ice cream cones are great. My one complaint is that there are too many people always waiting in line. If you pass by and there is no line, stop in. It is well worth it.

What can you say about Kilwin's except that everything offered is a delight to the senses. Ideally situated across the street from Bowen's Wharf, Kilwin's is a must-stop after dinner to get your chocoholic fix! Life is short, enjoy Kilwin's!

Ordered the Salted Caramel and it was delicious! Smooth and creamy. It is a small shop with tables. They also sell lots of confections like various types of chocolate covered Oreos, pretzel sticks, and rice Krispy treats on a stick. Didn't try those so cannot comment.

This fudge is so creamy and full of flavor. I have had to resist ordering more online since I got home. I purchased the double dark chocolate and the peanut butter! Incredibly good! I want more!!

Their ice-cream is truly the best. A bit too sweet for my taste, but still very good. Such a big variety of flavors. My favorite one is salted caramel and strawberry. Haven't tried any other items, so can't say anything.

Best candy and ice cream shop right in downtown. Delicious flavors and choices. Try the nut patties with chocolate and caramel! My friend loves the caramel and chocolate dipped apples.

The waffle cone was bland. They were stingy with the serving. The Kilwins in Charleston, Bluffton and Hilton Head Island are much better!!

The Peach ice cream and the Cappuccino Chocolate ice cream were to die for. Only wished they used plain sugar for sweetening instead of corn syrup. The place offers many confectioneries aside from ice cream, like macadamia clusters in caramel and topped with white chocolate, various flavors of fudge, chocolate covered caramels, cherry cordials etc. etc.

The varieties of flavors were great and different! It was so hard to decide that we ended up back twice more! Staff was nice and can't wait to go back 😍
