We had ice-cream here but were blown away but the counters full of fudge, toffee apples and other sweet treats. Ice cream is pricey but good quality.

While window shopping, we saw way too many goodies tempting us to enter. One sample of their peanut butter fudge made me reach for my wallet.

Kilwins is a chain. A good chain but a chain. Next time I would check out a local place. The fudge was very good and the place was always packed.

Just unbelievable the size of the toffee apples and a wide choice too. You need a very sweet tooth to purchase these. Staff were friendly and you can always buy just one piece to share.

Kilwins is a staple in northern Michigan so even with several ice cream and candy stores to choose from in Charleston, we of course stick with the familiar, tried, and true choice. You can't really go wrong with ice cream but Kilwin's is consistently good as is their selection of sweets. Although a bit of a tight squeeze inside, it... More

If you are pancreatically challenged, Kilwins is the place for you. Their sugar-free selections are delicious and offer actual options. In 23 years with Type I Diabetes, I thought I might never enjoy peanut brittle again. Kilwins has sugar free brittle and even more surprisingly, it's fantastic! I haven't been there in a year or two, but my husband recently... More

Couldn't resist stopping in Kilwins for an afternoon treat of homemade peppermint ice cream. Kilwins is a great place for a sweet treat fix. Ice cream, candy or both......you will be happy and your sweet craving satisfied.
