“Can't pass it up”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

We always stop here for a treat when we are in town. The sights and smells of them making the candy items are just not possible to resist.

“Is any ice cream worth that much?”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

Great location, ambience, wonderful smells, memory- inducing etc........BUT THEY JUST CHARGE TOO MUCH FOR A CONE OF ICE CREAM! Come on, Kilwins.....you're gouging us poor ice cream-loving slobs who can't walk past your shop without being drawn inside. Give us a break! Or maybe give us bigger cones! :)

“Ice cream and fudge heaven!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

Kilwins - ice-cream to die for!
This is a great place to go in downtown Blowing Rock, and attracts regular visitors on warm summer evenings. The staff are, as you'd expect, impeccably polite. You are offered free fudge tastings as you walk in. There is a wonderful assortment of delicious looking fudge on offer, as well as special caramel and nut toffee apples. The ice-cream is the best though, with the size of the scoop even impressing Americans! I had the best apple pie ice-cream ever. Salted caramel is deemed to be a favourite too!

“Hips Beware!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Too many treats to choose from. Best ice cream I have ever ever experienced....praline pecan. Lots of prepackaged treats great for gifts. I tasted a few and they were above average but not Godiva quality.

“Awesome ice cream!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

There are more than your typical flavors, and they are great. Huge candy selection to make any sweet toothed mouth water as well. Can't go wrong for an after dinner treat.
