Kilwins – Holland
Pretty sure I’ve mentioned several times on this blog how much I love Mackinac Island fudge. Every time I get the opportunity to stop by a Kilwins, whether it’s in South Haven, St. Joseph, or anywhere else I can find one, I do.
J, her mom, L, and I headed over to Holland for J’s birthday. We wanted to take her mom to New Holland Brewing for lunch then do some shopping at the Gap Outlet and Carter’s Outlet at the Holland Town Center.
When we parked downtown in Holland, we had a little bit of a walk back to the restaurant. As we cross 8th Street to get to the correct side of the road, I happened to look in the window of a store and notice fudge being made. I looked up to see the Kilwins sign and my eyes lit up.
Kilwins’ Holland shop is located on the corner of 8th and College downtown. It’s a rather large store full of chocolaty goodness. J was picking up the bill back at New Holland so L, J’s mom and I hung out in front of the store hoping J would want to go in.
As she was walking by, she pointed the store and asked if we wanted to stop. She got no arguments from me.
J and her mom went in first while I played with L outside. I eventually did go in the store and they already had a half pound of Chocolate Peanut Butter fudge on the counter ready to be wrapped up for me. I love all things chocolate and peanut butter and this fudge delivers on both. The bulk of the fudge is chocolate with bits of peanut butter fudge mixed in. I always feel bad about myself when I eat the rich, creamy fudge in one sitting, but yeah, that’s what I did…again.
J and her mom both passed on fudge and instead went for other chocolate creations. J got a chocolate dipped marshmallow that was drizzled with caramel. I never saw what her mom got, but it was something along those lines. Unfortunately for L, she’s still too little. She got nothing but the joy of watching me eat some insanely delicious fudge.
On our way out, we noticed a display of Sea Salt Caramel’s. Oh, if only we had noticed them sooner. We had already dropped enough money although we were regretting the decision not long after leaving.
