Kilwens is right on the strip downtown Gatlinburg. It is a sweet shop with homemade fudge, ice cream, caramel krispy treats, caramel apples, caramel logs etc. Many of the treats are made right in plain view of the customer. We come to Gatlinburg every year in March and a trip to town isn't complete without a salted caramel ice cream waffle cone (the waffle cone is made fresh as well). The salted caramel ice cream is the best rendition I have ever tasted. I believe this company hails from the U.P. but I am happy to enjoy it in the south every year. There is many a "creamery" in the Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg area. Save your time and $$$ and go to Kilwens. You won't regret it!

We stopped in several times during our week stay in Gatlinburg. There is a wide variety of sweets offered at fairly reasonable prices. Not sure if it should be the #1 "Restaurant" in Gatlinburg, but its a must visit. We personally loved the ice cream, the marshmallow puffs, and the rice crispy treats. We sampled the fudge which is also good, but $$$ which is to be expected. Stop in and try some as you are walking the strip.

We purchased a small variety of caramel apples while in Gatinburg, and the 'sea salt carmel apples' from Kilwin's were BY FAR the best! Plus lots of samples, 'to die for smells' and friendly service!

Very good. A little pricey but so much better than others. I love the carmel apples wit pecans. Those are delicious

Not sure why this is number one for restaurants in Gatlinburg. But if you love any kind of brittle. This is a must stop. They make their own fudge, caramel corn, which by the way is delicious as well. But we return every time for their brittle. They have peanut, pecan, cashew or our personal favorite a four nut version. Just the right combination of sweet and salty.
