Went in for a sorbet and was drawn to the fudge. Ended up getting both. The fudge was pretty good, the sorbet was generous. We also got some chocolate truffles which were pretty good. All in all, the candies are worth checking out, but expect to pay for them!

I've tried a few flavours and all have been excellent, my favourite is chocolate peanut butter but the peanut butter pie comes a close second! My only negative observation is the portion size, it varies depending on the day and who serves you. The cup is but on scales and weighed but after a noticeably smaller serving than normal I've...

My friend insists on her chocolate sodas & only @ Kilwin's will she go to on the Circle. I tagged along & ended up getting a sundae cup of the Mackinaw Island Fudge ice cream. While this place is on the Circle, I still say the prices are outrageous. I could buy 2 1/2 gallons of ice cream for the... More

We stopped by about 9:30 p.m. and they close about 10. My first step when I go to eat out is visit the restroom to wash my hands. The mens room was hot (not air conditioned) and had a blow dryer for the hands. I prefer paper so I can use it to open the door knob. The inner door... More

I had a small cup of Lemon Sorbato...$5.13..ridiculous...Stick with HaagenDaaz. I did hear that the other real ice cream is phenomenal...so you will have to be on your own with that. Either way, i'm sure it'll be expensive.

Had a tough time getting past the fudge to the ice cream. So, I tried the chocolate/raspberry fudge. Outstanding! The ice cream was really good in a waffle cone. Don't pass this up.

This is a very popular spot on the Circle, and it was always crowded in the evenings. The ice cream is good, but it is a little expensive and not any better than Olafs a block away. The fudge was very good, and they seemed to be making it fresh every day. There are a few benches for sitting outside,... More

Been to a few locations. This was the largest location I've seen. Love the ice cream and fudge. Worth the lineups.

Get near here and the smell of the chocolate will have you going in the front door. It is chocolate bliss. They have just about every chocolate items you could want. The fudge is wonderful and I like the other items too. You just can't go wrong here if you need a sweet treat.
