It was good to get back to KILWINS. It is every bit as good as the Annapolis location. Just as cute and the selection is great. We just had ice cream this time, no chocolate or goodies, but they were plentiful. Great for gifts and special snacks.

We always get ice cream at Kilwin's whenever we visit Wilmington. Their house made ice cream and candies are the best!

Kilwin's Ice Cream & Candy has great ice cream, fudge, carmel, etc. The smell outside is amazing. Plan to stand in line in late afternoons and evenings on weekends and summer.

Just walking in front of the store makes your mouth water! The smell.... is amazing. My daughter and I always give each other the "look" as we are about to walk by. We love to watch them at work. Window watching doesn't get better. I love the dainty treats and how beautiful and perfect everything looks. :) Reminds me of... More

You don't need to know where this place is just follow your nose to the smell of caramel being cooked. All of the candy and waffle cones are cooked on site so if you want candy or ice cream than this is the place. A little pricey but well worth it.
