Kilwins is a fantastic spot to stop and enjoy a variety of delicious treats including a great selection of delightful ice cream, yummy fudge, coffees and soda, milkshakes, candies and irresistible caramel apples. We cannot resist a visit to this Highlands mainstay. Long established and well appointed, you can have them ship their treats anywhere. A lovely spot for all... More

A lot of sugar in one place that's for sure. All stuff that involved sugar and chocolate. They have big selection of ice cream and chocolate goods and fudge. Great place for children.

We went here twice while on vacationing in the area. They have the best ice cream and sorbets. All of my family and grandchildren enjoy the excellent ice cream treats. The staff are very helpful and readily hand out samples.

This is a cousin to the establishment on Park Avenue in Winter Park FL. The choices are broad and they give samples to make you like what you order. We love to stop when walking along the shops along the Main Street in Highlands.

You just have to come try the fudge... it's to die for. They have it in every flavor practically. My favorite is the peanut butter. They also have ice cream, yogurt, candy.... it is a chocolate lovers haven!

Kilwins is always great. Great service, great sweets. Try the Salted Caramel milkshake. It's worth every calorie! The kids love the larger than life gobstoppers and the chocolate covered pretzel sticks.

If you want ice cream or treats this is the place to go. The toasted coconut ice cream was out of this world. Closed Sunday.

We walked in to town on our first afternoon here in Highlands and could tell immediately that we would be visiting Kilwin's daily for a treat. LOTS of sweet choices!!! Fun to see all of the fudge being made....
