Went here 2 days in a row because the ice cream is just that good. I had the Georgia Peach the first time and the Salted Caramel on trip 2. Must stop here when in Highlands!

Ever been to Leopold's Ice Cream Parlor in Savannah? Well, Kilwin's is just as good. We spent two days in Highlands and once we discovered Kilwin's (can't miss it--right in center of downtown), we made three visits. What delicious, cone-lickin' ice creams. No wonder it was busy!

We ordered the ice cream cones this time around at $4.75 each. It includes a very generous scoop of ice cream in a waffle cone. The Toasted Coconut and the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle were excellent choices with delightful flavors. This is a must stop on any trip to Highlands. It is centrally located right in the middle of town with outside tables and benches to enjoy the Highlands atmosphere.

Our group of 9 visited the Highlands, NC Kilwins May 2013. It was a highlight of our family vacation! The employees were gracious and efficient. The ice cream was exquisite! Anytime we come across another Kilwin's we will definitely patronize it!

I purchased several goodies from Kilwin's on my last trip. Salt water taffy, three different kinds of fudge, some chocolate covered Oreos and pretzels, and a frozen mocha. Everything was delicious, but is a bit expensive. We visit Highlands regularly and always stop in for a treat here!! It's hard to resist, you can smell the fudge outside the building!
