On our regular visits to Highlands we always stop by Kilwin's for an ice cream and to ship chocolates and goodies home to the grandkids. It has become a tradition and the service and value are first class.

This place is a fudge haven. Chocolate dipped chocolate. We had the dark double chocolate and the salted caramel milk chocolate. The place has ice cream and sodas, they ship their products which could be dangerous..
