The Dominican fudge, Hot Chocolate, Ice Cream is all top notch. The owners and staff are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about their products. Hendersonville Kilwin's is a definite must try when in town.

Yum! The fudge is great! And for marble-slab fudge, it's pretty reasonably priced, as well. I love that you can get it in small amounts or grab the whole lot and stuff it in a super-cute box! They also have amazing local-made icecreme and chocolates, the atmosphere is awesome, and the location makes it easy to get to. Definately would... More

We really did not need a sweets fix but I am gland we stopped in. We sampled fresh fudge and chocolates and had to buy some. The folks are friendly and helpful. The rest of the selection of chocolates looked yummy. Definitely get some sweets and they walk the downtown.

When we are in Hendersonville we always want to stop at Kilwin's. I smells so good from the homemade candies being made that you are glad that you walked in. The staff is very nice and the many unique flavors of ice cream are great.

This is a dessert shop rather than a full-menu restaurant. However, it fulfills its mission 100%--no sweet tooth will ever be left unsatisfied because there is something for everyone. People around here eat lunch or dinner at one of the many nice restaurants and then come here for dessert--it is that much of a treat.

They were supposed to close at 9am but stayed open because people kept walking in. Staff was excited about it which was refreshing. Whole family had ice cream which was a premium quality. Then walked out with some chocolate. Glad we happened to stumble upon it.

We stopped by for a single dip cone for two and I purchased just one piece of candy. The bill was over $12.00. That's too expensive for my budget. We liked the mint chocolate ice cream. I liked the peach. But I can find less expensive elsewhere.

Whenever I am in Hendersonville, I make a trip to Kilwin's. The ice cream is bar none some of the most unique favors that I ever experienced. My absolute favorite favor is the Blueberry Waffle Cone - a vanilla ice cream with swirls of blueberry and chucks of waffle cone to form a delectable dessert. When you visit, make sure... More
