Love, love, love this place. My wife and I always stop here when we're in Blowing Rock. Very nice people and the fudge is delicious. They also have ice cream and assorted chocolates that are amazing.

No other way to describe it! Yum! If the line seems long...like out of the door long...get in it. They run a well oiled machine. You will get in and out quickly. The candy/ice cream is the best around.

There are other icecream alternatives in Blowing Rock, and they are cheaper, but they don't compare. Kilwin's makes its mark on being consistently excellent with quality ingredients and the inviting scent that finds you from blocks away.

Not much to say other than suggesting that you save space at dinner for a dessert visit to Kilwins. Ice cream choices a many, the portions are large and the flavors sublime.
