The fudge is expensive and the pralines aren't the beautiful ones made with pecan halves. Theirs are smaller and made with chopped pecans. The staff was friendly, but I was somewhat disappointed in the quality of what I bought there.

You cannot walk down Market street without being seduced by the aroma's coming from Kilwin's Chocolate shop. The ice cream and fudge was just great. The caramel apples are varied and all delicious. Don't leave Charleston without stopping if you can...

Staff was really rude. Very impatient and seemed irritated with us right off the bat. Not impressed! The manager was even hateful! Too many candy/fudge stores to act like that and think you will have return customers!
