Welcome to beautiful Petoskey-a quaint resort community with unmatched beauty and charm. Petoskey has been a destination for resorters for more than 100 years and for multiple generations. People return to soak in the rich views, breathe the clean air, eat at world class restaurants and shop in the specialty shops and boutiques of its historic gas-light district. Within all of these wonderful features that draw people to Petoskey year after year is the original Kilwin's started by Don and Katy Kilwin. Continuing with the tradition set in 1947, Kilwin's of Petoskey is committed to selling pure enjoyment that comes in the form of high quality chocolates, ice cream and fudge. Our belief that the customer comes first is conveyed by our cheerful staff who will work with you to create the perfect indulgence. Kilwin's of Petoskey should be first on your list of attractions on your next visit to the Petoskey community.
As you walk the streets of historic downtown Petoskey, your senses will be enticed with the warm sweet aroma of chocolate, fudge and homemade waffle cones. We handcraft a wide variety of candies and confections right in our front window. Gaze as our homemade products are handcrafted before your eyes. See creamy Mackinaw Island fudge being paddled the traditional way on marble tables. Indulge all of your senses by smelling sweet corns and brittles as they are poured on the thick marble slabs.
Watch as we hand dip fresh granny smith apples in our original caramel recipe, developed by Don Kilwin himself. That is just the beginning of your indulgence! We also dip a variety of treats in our decadently smooth and delicious milk, dark or white chocolate. Pretzels, Twinkies, Oreos, Marshmallows, Krispie treats and strawberries-just to name a few.
