Expanding since its inception in 1947, Kilwins has opened stores in 25 states throughout the Midwest and down the Eastern seaboard into Florida. Seventy-five different products, including “tuttles,” Kilwins’ take on a caramel nut turtle, chocolate-dipped toffees, chocolate creams and ice cream, are shipped from a kitchen in Petoskey, MI to each store. Caramel-dipped apples and fudge made in each store, emanating an enveloping smell that ekes out onto the street.

Downtown Woodstockers must have a sweet tooth—Kilwins will join Tiny Bubbles Tea Bar, Snowmies Shaved Ice, Dulce Gelato, Cupcakelicous and locally-manufactured Flux Ice Cream in the town’s main shopping district.
