We stopped in here our first night after dinner. We each purchased a chocolate treat to have later. We enjoyed the cashew claw and dark chocolate dipped marshmallow. We came back another day to buy some chocolate treats for our colleagues at work. Prices are not cheap but the quality is worth the price you pay. The service was very... More

Always a stop for the wife and I after dinner. Just cannot walk past it. Love the hand-dipped ice cream. Full of taste. Staff is usually (ital) friendly, sometimes drudging through their duties.

My wife and I stopped for an early afternoon snack on a warm Charleston day. We opted for a waffle cone; I had the chocolate (not daring) while my wife had the Kilwins' Tracks. We thought both were very good and a great value for the money. The staff was friendly and helpful. A nice break from shopping as it... More

I always stop in at Kilwins and get an ice cream cone. Delicious homemade waffle cones and candies and fudge. The fudgey brownie and the kilwins turtle ice cream are my two favorites. a little on the pricey side, but hey its vacation in a touristy part of town, what do you expect? You are paying for the experience! The... More

Great fudge... lots of choices. My favorite is fudge with sea salt caramel. Gourmet apples are awesome.

Definitely the best fudge around (especially the caramel and sea salt). Bit expensive but you have to try it...

Well, we walked by this place several times and each time was so tempted to go in and buy something. We did make purchases on two occasions and was very satisfied with our purchases. Staff was very nice!

While on a weekend trip, my husband and I took a stroll through the City Market. We have visited this shop before, and came back to this place because we knew it was good. the other shop that sold fudge was horribly dry and did not have a good flavor compared to these guys. As for Kilwins, they have ice... More

First let me say that the young people who work here are so upbeat, cheerful and ready to assist that it's contagious. When my husband and I went in, we were planning to have fudge. (The Chocolate Raspberry Truffle was calling our name.) That is until another customer began raving about the Toasted Coconut Ice Cream so we decided to... More
