Right in downtown Wilmington. Take a walk on the riverwalk and visit Kilwins. Great Fudge and ice cream. The staff was very helpful.

Before you even enter, the smell of the chocolate is so yummy! Delicious ice cream & chocolate - a definite MUST when visiting Wilmington.

The candy would be what you expect. The workers were not friendly. They seemed like they'd rather be anywhere else.

The wait is long sometimes but the ice cream is worth it! They have homemade waffle cones. You can watch them make them right in the window. The chocolate and fudge section looks impressive although I've never bought anything other than ice cream

Even though it was Off Season the store was very busy with a steady stream of customers lined up. The line moved pretty fast and Wait Staff were friendly.

Love this place but it's tough on my willpower and diet. Got fudge on this trip and it was Buy 2 get 1 Free so I definitely couldn't resist! Lots of flavor choices for sure! I like this location in downtown Wilmington as well as their locations in downtown Boone and Blowing Rock in the NC Mountains near Appalachian State... More
