Enjoyed the ice cream and always have to stop here on my walk into town. After some shopping in the many stores in Blowing Rock, an ice cream cone is just what is needed!

I love dark chocolate I got the Dominican Fudge. It is dark and dreamy. The staff was very helpful and gave many free samples. My daughter got a lemon meringue ice cream cone that was amazing. The smell alone will knock you out.

We went over Thanksgiving weekend and needless to say there were a ton of people.

Nice assortment, but uses preservatives. Expensive for what we bought and does not have a homemade taste. Very disappointed in the taste and quality.

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.
