This place was a big hit with my family! The ice cream was lovely and creamy. We also took some chocolates home. Try the "Tongas!" They are so delicious. I can't wait for a chance to go back and treat myself again!

Fantastic ice cream treats, hand dipped candies, and homemade fudge. My husband gets the Highlands Hash most of the time and we share.

Stop by for Handmade Pralines-you will think you are in New Orleans. Candy made on site, so many choices. Family owned, part of a small town. Donate to the school and other important projects.

We have a cottage on Lake Rabun and often drive up to Highlands for a walk and lunch at the Mountain Fresh Grocery... and always a cone of ice cream at Kilwin's! It's convenient, easy to find, very clean, friendly... and good!

Stopped in for pralines. They were very good , just as good as the ones I had in New Orleans. The prices may seem high, but it costs a lot to make these sweets. I have made these items and the price is spot on....More

Not sure why but every Kilwin that I have visited appear over priced to me. While I have no problem with the product the pricing is too high.

We often stop at Kilwins when we are in the Highlands or Hendersonville North Carolina. Both are excellent. I had the New Orleans praline and my wife had chocolate chip. Both were wonderful and met the spot.
