Stopped by to buy some fudge to take with us. Both the salted caramel and the pecan fudge were creamy and very flavorful.

Every Kilwin's i go in to have one thing in common consistency...sometimes i just look around and try the free samples. When i do buy OMG the prices are out of the world. Blowing Rock is a tourist trap were most Kilwin's are.

Kilwins is always good, even though I try to buy local, this is one chain where you can't go wrong. Fudge, ice cream.

I always stop at Kilwins when in Blowing Rock. They make all types of fudge on site and have a wide variety of ice cream flavors. Great milk shakes here.

One of the most popular places in all of the village of Blowing Rock is the famous KILWINS ICE CREAM shop. When you see folks lined up outside waiting to get in the door, and the park benches surrounding the entry filled with people licking their cones....you know it must be good! What a great place to find a gift... More

We never go to Bliwing Rock without a visit to Kilwins for one of their candy apples. They are probably the best we have had

We loved the ice cream and the homemade waffle cones. The smell got us in the door; they should just sell the broken cone pieces. I would have bought that.

This is a lovely town and eating ice cream at the park while sitting on the bench and looking at the surroundings was awesome.

My family stopped in to Kilwins twice. The first day we bought their chocolate fudge. Three bars of different chocolate and nuts. The fudge is smooth and creamy. It was to die for. The second day we stopped in again for their ice cream. My wife and family would give Kilwins a five-star rating!
