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.

The smells on the sidewalk from this Kilwins draws you in. It is busy, delicious and adjacent to the Market.
