Stopped in for pralines. They were very good , just as good as the ones I had in New Orleans. The prices may seem high, but it costs a lot to make these sweets. I have made these items and the price is spot on. They have any kind of sweet you want..... Treat yourself

Not sure why but every Kilwin that I have visited appear over priced to me. While I have no problem with the product the pricing is too high.

We often stop at Kilwins when we are in the Highlands or Hendersonville North Carolina. Both are excellent. I had the New Orleans praline and my wife had chocolate chip. Both were wonderful and met the spot.

They serve great ice cream and of course have awesome chocolate but the service and Hot Chocolate are by far the best!

The people were very friendly, the service was good and they aimed to please. I wanted hot chocolate and they were able to give me almond milk and chocolate syrup. The fudge is good and they have various options of flavor. They were making kettle corn so we got some very fresh. Very nice store.

If you like sweets at all, this place is a must on your trip. We got ice cream, and tried some of the candy. All of it was delicious. We also got gifts for some friends and family. We will always go back during each trip. I did get boxed chocolate-covered Oreos, and they had a design on them that... More

Right in the center of town this is definitely the place to get your little sweet tooth satisfied... one of the few places that actually carries rum-raisin ice cream :-) Yummy ! Kilwin's never disappoints. This location is nestled into a cute little plaza with boutiques, elevated flower beds and lovely benches. Great place to sit outside, snack on your... More
