Great selection of flavors. We each had a different flavor - lemon, salted caramel, cookies and cream, chocolate and moose tracks.

Welcome to indulgence -- from chocolates to chocolate ice cream sodas. You may have to explain the difference between an ice cream float from an ice cream soda. Eat outside on a nice day.

Kilwins is a fantastic spot to stop and enjoy a variety of delicious treats including a great selection of delightful ice cream, yummy fudge, coffees and soda, milkshakes, candies and irresistible caramel apples.

A lot of sugar in one place that's for sure. All stuff that involved sugar and chocolate. They have big selection of ice cream and chocolate goods and fudge. Great place for children.

We went here twice while on vacationing in the area. They have the best ice cream and sorbets. All of my family and grandchildren enjoy the excellent ice cream treats. The staff are very helpful and readily hand out samples.

This is a cousin to the establishment on Park Avenue in Winter Park FL. The choices are broad and they give samples to make you like what you order. We love to stop when walking along the shops along the Main Street in Highlands.

You just have to come try the fudge... it's to die for. They have it in every flavor practically. My favorite is the peanut butter. They also have ice cream, yogurt, candy.... it is a chocolate lovers haven!
