Love Love Love the green apple dipped in caramel, dark chocolate and sea salt. Can not say amazing enough times. Everyone I have taken there says the same thing. Yum! Apples run $10.00 cut or whole. I buy one cut and take one home whole.

After walking around in the heat, Kilwins was perfect place to stop for a carmel apple and some ice cream to beat the heat. The fudge looked amazing and the taffy was very tasty too. You won't be disappointed here.

Ice cream is always delicious here! The smell of candy, Carmel apples, and fudge are intoxicating. Be prepared to wait in line for ice cream and to pay.

It's not Godiva, but it's still really good, and the price was good. I had a caramel covered krispie bar, and my husband enjoyed the vanilla cream chocolates.

If you need a quick pick me up or a chocolate fix ... this is your place! The ice cream is very good. Not as expensive as Ben and Jerrys.. but just as tasty with unusual assortments and good old fashioned basics as well. The...More
