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.

This is a basic ice cream and fudge shop which looks local but is actually a chain store that is expanding across the South. We stopped in for a treat to beat the heat and fatigue of our mid-day tourist rambles. The friendly sales folk...More
