After lunch out we stopped at Kilwins for a treat. It was 3pm on Saturday. We purchased 3 Carmel apples and a box of peanut clusters. They offer several different kinds of Carmel apple varieties. We purchased a Carmel and peanut, a Carmel and pecan and a carmel, pecan and chocolate. Yummy.

Most people write about the delicious chocolate and yummy ice cream which is absolutely true. But a visit to Petoskey is not complete without a Tour of the kitchen. Located in the old Oleson's store on US 31, Killwin's began doing tours of their operations a few years ago and they are absolutely great! They are about a half hour... More

Chocolates or ice cream is always quality product. One of my favorites is the caramel corn with dark chocolate and nuts.

This Kilwins produces the products shipped to other local stores, and tours are given at 9am Tuesdays through the immaculate facility with free chocolate given at the end. The caramel corn, ice cream, tuttles...well, let's just say every tasty delicacy, too many to mention, is remarkably fresh and delicious, with attentive service and great pride.

4 of us had ice cream cones which were over 4. 00 each. Good but not that good. May try again but not soon. Bought peanut brittle which was over 10.00. Have not tried yet but looks good

Delicious chocolate! HUGE selection and friendly staff. We got some nice gifts for others as well as some sweets for ourselves. The dark chocolate covered Oreos are fabulous! I had the dark chocolate sea salt caramels as well. They were good, but I've had better. It was an enjoyable experience.

We had ice cream here 2 nights in a row in the winter because it was that good. A bit pricy, but worth every penny. The chocolate was also very good. If you are in the area make it a point to stop here.

We spent way more time here then expected! So much chocolate to see!! Took the tour and Noah our guide was great only wish they were making more candy would have been interesting. Kilwins makes the best fudge and caramel apples. We even went back on our way out of town for more apples. Also the employees were outstanding!!
