Empty Kilwin's buckets that is. Yes, they offer these. I think they're 2 gallon buckets, cleaned and emptied, but they are very thin so not very practical for storing stuff (like, say, a rigid 5-gallon paint bucket might be).

Oh, the ice cream is very good. The waffle cone or bowl is good but pretty thick - not recommended to bite into with your if you have delicate dental or orthodontic work! Many tempting confections are available, but alas, we didn't have room for them.

Although one of the most popular among Black Mountain's downtown gathering places, we found far better ice cream at The Artisan store in nearby Cheshire Village just south of town and better chocolate from Black Mountain Chocolate (and other sources) in several area providers of coffee and snacks such as The Dynamite Roasting Company. On the other hand, this is a great place for people-watching and mingling. Clearly it is a local institution that merits respect, but our family will do our more serious investigations of sweets and fats nearby but not here.

So many wonderful choices are what we liked.
Too hard to choose was what we disliked!
They had so much fun picking out the ice cream.
Grandma is still savoring the fudge! Grandpa likes it lots!

They have a great selection of both fudge made there, and ice cream. Samples of fudge as you walk in!
