Good for that huge taffy apple and few chocolates or fudge. It is part of a chain and I think a bit pricey...they should watch that.

Hot evening that called for great ice cream. Kilwin's ice cream is the pinnacle of ice creams. The free pieces of Kilwin's fudge and brittle were the piece de resistance too. While the ice cream may seem a bit pricy it is well worth the ice cream splurge.

Local friends took us in and WOW! Hope other Kilwin's live up to this experience. The ice cream was divine, the candy, especially the peanut butter fudge, some of the best! Looking forward to another visit.

This confectionery store has ample offerings to satisfy even the most discriminating taste buds. Their hand packed ice cream offerings are numerous and are a much anticipated sweet treat on a hot afternoon. This is a must visit place when you find yourself downtown on Main Street.

Kilwins is an overpriced ice cream and candy store. They have many locations all over the Eastern United States. The ice cream is nothing special. The fudge I got was really gooey and super sweet. Go across the street and get your ice cream from Mikes On Main. Get your candy from Mast General.

Walking around Hendo on a Friday evening is a treat. With the band at one end and the car show at the other, and Kilwin's right between! The ice cream and chocolate are worth a trip from most anywhere!

Loved finding this place in downtown Hendersonville. Very friendly staff even though they were packed with customers. This location also serves ice cream so we ordered a cold treat while we perused the handmade chocolate and fudge. Ice cream was tasty. Bon Bons were very good, but what really satisfied my sweet tooth was the truffles. Those were my favorites!

As previous pastry shop manager I can say that is good clean place,with polite staff but with mediocre ice cream and sweats and overpriced products.

Expensive. Not as many unusual choices as I prefer. Staff was friendly, but not overly helpful. Not all natural and the taste was rather bland in the three types of fudge I purchased. Will not go back.
