Kilwins in Delray Beach on Atlantic Avenue-Fine Chocolates!

Two of my favorites things... Chocolate and Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach!   Kilwins may be a franchise but it fits right in with our local shops.  Bill and KilwinsAlison Whitworth brought this popular Chocolate Shop Franchise to Delray in 2001.  

Kilwins has been around since 1947 (finally something older than me!) and holds as its value “Treat others as you want to be treated.  Do your best, and have fun.”

Now here’s the fun part... they have  ice cream, candied apples, chocolates everywhere and their Mackinac Island Fudge, an original recipe developed by Don & Katy Kilwin.  Their fudge comes in sea-salt caramel, turtle, double dark chocolate, peanut butter,  and chocolate peanut butter just to name a few.  I chose chocolate caramel and some of the Kilwin Tracks Ice Cream.  

If you need a gift for a chocolate lover they make it in the shape of fish or wrapped in colorful foils.  You can sink your teeth into a triple caramel apple or watch as they make dark chocolate covered graham crackers  or chocolate covered Rice Krispi bars.   

And, if you’ve been out shopping along Atlantic Avenue, treat yourself to a break and indulge in an ice cream while you sit outside at one of their sidewalk tables and enjoy the view.

That sounds like it could be a dangerous place to shop when my will power is a little low Kathy.

Kathy, these shops are so much fun to wander through -- the smell is wonderful!    Not being a chocolate lover, the peanut brittle sounds good!

I love Kilwins. 

I hate Kilwins.

Great place. Calorie heaven.

Nothing like Atlantic Avenue.

Try Sandwiches by the Sea for a great sub. Bring it on the beach. 

Dave is a great guy.

Kilwins opened up in Deerfield and is busy when I go by.

Richie- I didn't appreciate really good peanut brittle until I got older.  But now.. love it. 

Kristin- I've been known to grab a small handful of dark chocolate chips to satisfy my chocolate craving. 

Rebecca- it's hard just walking into the store... I've never walked out of there without something. 

Alexandra- LOL ... would that I could!  I have myself trained to walk in and get just 1 piece of chocolate. 

John (QMan)- I've never passed up a chocolate dessert.  In fact, when we're out for dinner, I turn to the dessert section first. 

Fernando- wish there was a way to "beam" some chocolate to everyone.  Maybe next year.  Wonder if there's an App for it. 

Malcolm- warning... never go in when you haven't had anything sweet in the last 24 hours!  

Sally- I was so tempted but was partially good.  Unfortunately we're always on Atlantic Ave. 

Joan- whoa!  are you sure you don't like chocolate just a little?!

Erv- Sandwiches by the Sea?  I bet I've seen it but I'm definitely looking it up now. Will have to see where Kilwins is in Deerfield!

Bobbie- kind of like cat nip isn't it!

When I'm on Atlantic Ave in Delray Beach Florida , I make it a point to stop in Kilwins for some goodies.

Good luck and success.

Kathy, looks so good! That could be dangerous for someone like me trying to watch their weight, but then again a reward now and then wouldn't hurt.
