Great spot in the highlands next to a outdoor restaurant so there is like a common area where people sit outside to enjoy their ice cream

Stop here for wonderful ice cream, fudge, caramel apples & chocolate candies. It smells heavenly in this store. They have a big variety of any kind of sweets you can think of. Even on the busy 4th of July week, the staff was very fast...More

Nice little ice cream/fudge shop right on main street. Lots of sugar free options and the fudge is hand made on site!

We always stop her and have a cone. So many flavors. Also the most delicious made in house fudge. Tons of fres made chocolates. Fun

Who doesn’t like ice cream! Always have a visit to kill once when in Highlands North Carolina. Lots of different patches and candy and ice cream is to choose from definitely a must do when you are there.

First time to this location but have been to others. Very delicious and consistent. Dark Fudge and chocolate is excellent quality. A bit pricey but worth it. Always a great place to stop for a treat!!!

Great ice cream and they give generous portions. We also tried the free candy samples, and ended up buying some.

Don’t even remember what ice cream flavor I finally chose, but it was great, as was the fudge and pralines. My husband, however, was not thrilled with the chocolate truffle he chose.

We loved the Kilwin's ice cream. Nice sized portions and great flavors. A nice stop while in Highlands.

Delicious as always. The ice cream choices are plentiful. We sampled a couple of fudges and, as usual, they are delicious.
