You cannot walk down Market street without being seduced by the aroma's coming from Kilwin's Chocolate shop. The ice cream and fudge was just great. The caramel apples are varied and all delicious. Don't leave Charleston without stopping if you can...

Directly across from the City Market, this is a great place to get ice cream, fudge and other candy essentials. The staff is quite knowledgeable and friendly.

Kilwins makes the BEST fudge. The seasonal pumpkin fudge is soooo delicious. The turtle fudge is also a fave of ours! I wish there was one in my town!

First, I'm sure the ice cream was stellar. The employees were great. The store was in fine condition. I grew up spending summer nights at the Frankfort, MI store sipping on killer MILKSHAKES. The minute I smelled the Kilwins from a block away, I couldn't wait until dinner was over. THEY DON'T SERVE MILKSHAKES! You can get a smoothie at... More

Staff was really rude. Very impatient and seemed irritated with us right off the bat. Not impressed! The manager was even hateful! Too many candy/fudge stores to act like that and think you will have return customers!

We walked by and were drawn in by the delicious smells and beautiful treats in the window. The pralines absolutely melt in your mouth! The fudge was Buy 2, Get 1 Free, so we bought 3 slices. This place is dangerous for my diet, but totally worth the splurge!

Very fresh, made daily fudge for the extra indulgence while visiting for a holiday. Plus, gourmet popcorn in two to three flavors usually bring an aroma to their shops that will definitely have you lingering for bit more than you expected. Try some!
