My daughter and I got ice cream and chocolates. The chocolates were extremely expensive. They were good, but I've have the same quality for much less. The ice cream was really good with a few flavors on the unique side. The 3 young kids that were behind the counter were both miserable looking and unhappy to have customers. They make... More

Kilwin's has national franchises in major tourist areas, so we were prepared for the scrumptious variety of candy, fudge, and ice cream. We felt things were pricey, but the quality, as usual, was superb.

Kilwin's has great freshly made candy and other treats. The downside is that they are pretty expensive. While the treats offered at Kilwin's may arguably be worth the money, don't go there expecting to get a big bang for your buck, so to speak. They also offer a variety of hard ice creams that are very good and more affordable... More

My brother loves superman ice-cream and they have it! The ice-cream is decadent. Watching them make fudge is fun for both young and old. It's air conditioned which is important in Gettysburg during the hot summer months.

I always stop here for ice cream. It is one of the few places in the region that has Super Man Ice cream! Their portions are large, so make sure you bring your appetite. The staff is helpful and friendly. You can also see fudge being made if you get there at the right time.

We stopped here while dining in the area at the Dobbin House and we enjoyed our visit. They have some good candies here and we left with some small bags. If you're in this end of town stop in at this place for some treats!

When you want a little something sweet. There is nothing like homemade ice cream. More flavors than I can count, so hard to choose which one. Their sea salt caramels and chocolates are to die for. Buy just one or buy a box.

The ice creams are very good and they have a good selection. Only a couple of benches inside that fit 4 people. They have fudge but no vanilla flavor, sorry not a good seller. I recommend it for a quick stop for ice cream or fudge.
