We stope here every time we are in Florida. They have amazing fudge, treat and ice cream! You can watch to the side as they make their chocolate and caramel. The sea salt caramel chocolate fudge is the best!

Every time we're in the area we go to Kilwin's The people that work there are really friendly and helpful. We LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the ice cream. One of these times we might even try the candy. Looks really good too.

The ice cream is awesome. My husband also had a chocolate covered apple and loved it. Also being right on the water makes it more enjoyable. Will definitely be going back in the future.

Had heard of Kilwins and have tried their chocolates and popcorn at different location but this was our first time having Kilwins Ice Cream. Very creamy and great choice of flavors. You can tell they use quality ingredients.

The name doesn't do it justice but this place is an ice cream store (plus chocolate and don't remember what else). But we were in here for the ice cream and it was great. They do warn you about the seagulls, they apparently like to swoop in on unsuspecting tourists and snatch their waffle cones! Should make this stop when... More

I stopped in for a Caramel Apple. They packed it for take out and did it up beautifully so it wouldn't get damaged in transit. The apple was absolutely delicious and very fresh. The caramel was generous. The store was tempting all around with all that chocolate. They were doing a brisk business.

If you're from the Midwest, you know it's rare to see Blue Moon ice cream on the coast! Kilwin's is a chain from Michigan, so I was excited to see they had this flavor. It tastes like blue raspberry meets bubble gum - hard to explain. My family all tried different flavors, with peanut butter pie being the best!

I spent $61 on stale chocolate. Do not recommend purchasing anything here at all! We purchased both prepackaged items and out of the case. It was inedible. Sadly did not find out until we were back home :(

Initially drawn by the wonderful smells emanating from the open door we had to visit and peer inside. Our grand-daughters enjoyed the chocolate covered marshmallow and rice Krispy treat. Our (adult) son enjoyed the oreo delight. What a wonderful treat after lunch after a walk down the boardwalk
