This is a well known local spot with great ice cream. It is a must stop on our visits to Gettysburg, especially in the summer after walking the battlefield.

Great place to shop and eat ice cream. Delicious ice cream and gave you large portions. Would highly recommend trying this place and was within walking distance from the hotel and other shops. Have gone there the past three years.

Ice Cream - smooth, creamy, homemade, dairy-fresh! Fudge - Obviously made on the premises, smooth, creamy, and utterly delicious! We initially ordered 2 different flavored slabs and were rewarded with a free 3rd serving. If you're seeking sweet treats whilst in Gettysburg, Kilwin's is a MUST stop!

It smells soooo good when you first walk in! :) Fresh popped pop corn! So many yummy candies to look through but I went straight for the ice cream. I had been told that the Salted Caramel flavor was a must and it did not disappoint! So good! The staff were very friendly and offered samples of various ice cream... More

All I can really say is YUMMY! Was attracted to Kilwin's when walking by and seeing them making the fudge in the store. It tasted even better than it looked.

I knew we had to visit Kilwin's as soon as I read about it on Trip Advisor. We stopped by after dinner to grab dessert. Both of their employees were excellent- helpful and friendly. My son got a waffle cone with two of their (many) flavors of ice cream. I got a homemade marshmallow on a stick dipped in caramel... More
