Very busy location - great ice cream.. Ordering can be a little confusing and the store is a bit cluttered with displays, so people getting in line in the wrong place, cutting the line, etc. Need a better flow of people in and out. Not much for seating, so plan to stand and eat our ice cream.

Try the Mackinack Island Fudge ice cream! It is a winner and reminds me of being at Mackinac Island!

We had just finished having supper close by and we decided we all wanted dessert so we stopped at this store. My husband and son had a pistachio ice cream and our friend bought some vanilla buttons. I bought some chocolate almond crunch and some dark almond chocolate. I also bought a salted caramel candy apple for my daughter in... More

There is nothing in the store that doesn't rate 10/10. Fudge, ice cream, chocolates, all superb. Visit once a week if possible.

It is almost impossible to walk out of Kilwin's without picking up a treat or two. There is a decent offering of goods, so everyone in your party should be able to find something they like.

In the midst of a hectic shopping day, what better place to stop for a sweet treat? You'll find every style and flavor of chocolate and ice cream. Choose something for your snack and maybe a bit more to take home.

It smells amazing and the boxed salted caramels are great. But the service seems very sporadic in quality. I think it depends on when you go. I usually wind up there shortly before closing and I think the staff just wanted to go home.

Kilwins has the best ice cream in Huntersville, with a very wide variety of flavors. We try something different each time. In addition to the ice cream, they make chocolates, candies and candy apples. A real family favorite.

From the moment you walk in the door your senses will be enticed with the warm sweet aroma of chocolate, fudge, and fresh homemade waffle cones. We hand craft a wide variety of candies and other confections right in our candy kitchen. Watch as our homemade products are hand crafted in the store right before your eyes. See creamy Mackinac Island fudge being paddled the traditional way on marble tables. Watch as we hand dip fresh apples in our original caramel recipe, developed by Don Kilwin himself, for that perfect and best tasting caramel apple. Our large marble table is located by the windows so that the whole family can watch us make each product. Our menu ranges from hand paddled fudge, delicious truffles, homemade caramel, chocolate dipped items, to a variety of homemade brittles and caramel popcorn. We dip all sorts of treats in any one of our three chocolate hillards- milk, dark or white chocolate. Chocolate dipped items range from fresh strawberries, rice krispie treats, oreos, twinkies, pretzels rods,and many,many more. We also have 32 flavors of Original Recipe ice. Our ice cream is some of the best ice cream you will ever enjoy! To top it off, we make our own waffle cones in the store for that fresh, crisp taste. From our friendly staff to our grand array of homemade treats, Kilwins is a must-visit when in the Huntersville area.
