No need to look any further for your Ice Cream (or Chocolate) Fix. Number 1 staff, #1 quality, simply the best in all areas and a MUST for bringing your out of town friends. They will rave for years!!!

Kilwins is a long time candy company with company and franchise stores in various location. Their chocolate candies are very good and I say that from long experience devouring a large variety of their products. And, on a warm summer evening, stop by for a dish or cone of one of their many flavors of ice cream.

This is a great candy making tour, totally unexpected fun on a rainy day. The Ice Cream is almost better than the chocolate!

Kilwin's is pricey, but very good. We always get their #2 seller, Toasted Coconut. If you would like to have one scoop, but 2 different ice creams, they will do that for you. I have found that Boyne City Kilwins is cheaper than their store in Petoskey. Not by much, but a little.

The ice cream is good, but pricey. A one scoop hot fudge sundae was $6. The employee was scraping hot fudge out of the bottom of the barrel, so I didn't get much and it was grainy globs. He should have tlod me that they were out of hot fudge.

After a nice meal at Cafe Sante in Boyne City we walked up the street for dessert at Kilwin's. Needless to say the ice cream was out of this world. My sister-in-law and I had chocolate caramel cashew and my brother had french silk. Nothing is cheap at Kilwin's but the quality is always superb. Probably the best ice cream... More

I visited Kilwin's last September (2015), but am only getting to the review now. I went into Kilwin's to select something chocolate and came away with a chocolate-covered oreo and a chocolate-covered graham cracker (both topped with dark chocolate). Both treats hit the spot, and there were many more selections for chocolate lovers who need their "fix." Definitely worth stopping... More
