Sea salted caramel is excellent, peanut butter pie is apparently their best seller. A single scoop will run you about $4-$5 bucks while a double is about $8. We didn't try any of the chocolate treats but if they are anything like the ice cream all I can say is WOW!

You can gain weight just by walking in, but it's well worth it. Lots to choose from, they'll give you samples so you can try before you buy. Loved it

Just walking by this place, you know it is going to be good. The smell drifting out the door lures you in. All the ice cream is amazing, and the other treats are good too! This is a great place for a treat on a hot Charleston day.

Kilwins is a great chain store known for its chocolate and ice cream. I love their ice cream! They never disappoint. It is right by the market place. It was great to enjoy my ice cream while walking through the open market.

The shop is very quaint and temptation all around. Very personable and will let u taste test. My husband had the double chocolate fudge brownie in a waffle cone and said it was excellent.
