“Great find just down the street from the Almondy Inn”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

The smells from outside were enticing. We stopped in a few times during our long weekend stay for ice cream & chocolates. So much to choose from and so little time.

“Very good! Love watching!”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Great chocolates! You get to watch them make a lot of it in the front! So much fun! Not badly priced either! Even have fun boxes like garden set made of chocolates! Lots of unique items!

“Amazing Chocolate!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

My husband and I stopped in looking for some chocolates to take with us. Our favorite tends to be sea salted cashew turtles. Unfortunately, they only had pecan ones that were sea salted but they were amazing anyway! Their chocolate is very smooth and the caramel is soft but not hard to chew and doesn't stick to everything. Will definitely be back here again to try their ice cream and other treats!

“Good Ice Cream”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Stopped in for ice cream but noticed they had a wonderful assortment of all kinds of goodies - chocolates, fudge, candy. I had the cookie dough ice cream and my son went with the salted carmel. Mine was delicious but the salted carmel was really good. Have to go back for that next time. Only gave 4 stars because I felt it was pricey and the service wasn't very good.

“One of our Favorites in Newport!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

In town for our daughter's wedding, Kilwin's was one of the spots we recommended our guests to visit on their trip to Newport. Kilwin's is a sweet tooth lover's dream, with homemade caramel apples, fudge, chocolates, ice cream and assorted candies. One of our favorites is their sea salt caramel fudge! There are a few tables inside to eat your ice cream and a variety of prepackaged items to take home as gifts. The ice cream flavors run from the unique to the old fashioned standards, but all are delicious! We make a point of stopping in whenever we are in town. It's a cant' miss spot for us.
