Ice cream, fudge and chocolate shop. Very classy place. You determine the value based upon prices. Ice cream lovers like their selections. Fudge looked wonderful and the chocolates were very tasty. No place to go on a diet. Check it out.

Walking in to Kilwin's causes you to apply all of the restraints you canmail muster. The aroma of baking and candy making is overwhelming. We bought candy and fudge and enjoyed every bite.
