    In the heart of historic downtown Hendersonville’s Main Street you’ll find the decadently delightful candy and ice cream shop called Kilwin’s.  It’s fun to spend part of a day shopping at all the Main Street shops, galleries and antique stores….and when it’s time to take a break, we recommend stopping at Kilwin’s to partake of their rich and delicious ice cream cones or sample their huge selection of rich, handmade fudges (made on site) and amazing chocolates.  They even have our famous local apples dipped in their homemade caramel.  There are little tables in the back where you can relax and indulge in your favorite treats and watch the fudge being paddled to smooth creaminess.  They also have lovely gift baskets they can fill with their treats when you need something for that special occasion.  They also ship.

    For the freshest, creamiest, homemade ice cream you’ll probably ever taste, you’ve got to experience the Marble Slab Creamery in Asheville NC!  Every batch of ice cream is homemade and their hand-rolled and dipped waffle cones are baked right there.  You can select from an astonishing selection of ice cream flavors made of the finest and freshest ingredients (never processed or preserved).  Once you’ve made your ice cream selection, it is then scooped onto a frozen marble slab where it will be blended with your choice of additional ingredients such as nuts, candies, cookies, fruits, etc.  It will then be piled high on your waffle cone of choice.  This is way beyond just ice cream in a tub plopped on a cone….this is an experience….a really yummy experience!  For a special celebration, order an ice cream cake or pie, or custom make your own ice cream in pints or quarts to go.  They will even bring along a marble slab and cater an ice cream event.
