Kilwans was founded in Michigan in 1947 as a family business and chocolate confectionery, and in 1985 expanded into the ice cream business with the arrival of a new chef. The company prides itself on its superior service and high-quality products made from original recipes, and in that long tradition of superior quality, Kilwins ice cream is made with only the finest ingredients available. The company sources its antibiotic-free, rbST-free milk and cream from family farms, and uses delectable confections like chocolate, nuts, and fudge to craft their signature ice creams.
With over one hundred locations nationwide, Kilwins stores have the warm, local feel of a family business while maintaining the national brand's trademark excellence. Kilwins ice cream comes in 40 scrumptious flavors of hand-crafted, small-batch ice cream, served in waffle cones or as sundaes. Kilwins prides themselves on their friendly customer service, a tradition engrained in the company since its founding. While you are waiting for your ice cream or licking the last of your sundae off of your spoon, be sure to check out the exquisite chocolates, caramel apples, and fudges being made on-site every day!
Original Recipe Ice Cream
Kilwin's original recipe ice cream begins with a luscious, velvety cream base. The milk and cream are carefully pasteurized, homogenized, and blended with the beautiful ingredients that give Kilwins ice creams their exceptional taste. The velvety ice cream fully is then churned and quickly frozen in custom barrels which were designed to preserve the high quality associated with all Kilwins ice cream.
After being supercooled at negative 20 degrees Fahrenheit, the ice cream is shipped only in Kilwins' refrigerated trucks, which conscientiously maintain a temperature of negative 10 degrees Fahrenheit. This shipping procedure ensures that Kilwins signature high quality is maintained throughout the shipping process, and guarantees that every scoop of ice cream served is utterly delicious.
