We sampled and bought several items. The service was excellent. Everything was clean and orderly. We would travel back to Highlands just to get more pralines.

I grew up in Michigan and Kilwins was such a treat when I was a kid! I always stop in to Kilwins whenever I see one. My favorite is the Mackinac Fudge ice-cream although my favorite was Superman when I was a kid.
