Aside from the park, this is probably the most visited location on Main Street Blowing Rock. Who doesn't love fudge and or ice cream on a summers day - or any other day for that matter. A must visit.

We walked along the downtown shops and stopped at Kilwin Fudge Shoppe where I had the Key Lime Pie ice cream. It was home made with fresh key lime pie mixed into the ice cream. It was delicious. The best ice cream ever.

The smells coming from this place is enough to bring anyone inside. We had their ice cream and it was excellent. I wanted more, however trying to behave. Stop in when looking for desert and you won’t be disappointed.
