How sweet it is!


Fort Myers Beach boardwalk

Next to Life Wave in Fort Myers Beach is a familiar storefront. Familiar to me, because it originated in Michigan 60 years ago!

Kilwin's is a well known maker of hand-dipped chocolates and homemade ice-cream. If you think you can take it - check out their short production videos ;-)

What's my favorite? Truffles, of course! What's yours?

Thanks for the animal-award, but ehhh where can I find that award?, is that the sheep on you blogsite? (left-top)

Anyway you asked me where my dogsname is coming from < Good Question , We LOVE GREECE and IOS is an island in greece. So My girlsname was 'JOSje' and that sounds the same as IOS, 2 reasons to call our lovely dog IOS.

Yum! That does look like a great place to stop at.

LOL.

This place covered all the bases. Fudge in Michigan on the island is the best in the world, by the way and I know you already know that.

With all of that sunshine, how long before the everything melts :)

Two stores in a row, what a deal! I'll go for "Death by Chocolate", of maybe "Moose Tracks". Ok, I'll have both!
I wonder what our friends from overseas think of names like those :-)

Jilly said...

Boringly, I hear you say, I don't like ice-cream, or fudge and can only eat a little chocolate. Well it doesn't like me, to tell the truth. Gives me migraines. Now how boring is that!

It all looks so inviting tho, dammit.

And Isabella, thanks so much for the awards on Menton yesterday. That means a lot to me! Love ya!

Pistache would be my favourite, please! However, it may smelt on the way here! I will have to try a local one, maybe Italian style!

Hyde DP said...

ooh you little temptress with your icecream -- no I won't be tempted; it's a cold wind blowing here although the sky is blue!

Sunkyoung said...

Thank you for dropping by my blog, Isabella. I like only ice cream in their menu.:)

Kate said...

Looks like my kinda place! Couldn't get the video on my computer, tho, but did take a look at Truffles. Pretty delectable, too!!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream.

Soft peanut butter fudge.

Double dipped chocolate covered peanuts.

Nathalie said...

Truffles yes, I'll have one with you!
I'm just a bit worried about the portion sizes, no "supersize me" for me thanks!

Sorry I can't visit more often at the moment but thanks for your kind comment on Avignon Photos and congratulations on your well deserved Schmooze Award!!!

At one time a couple from FL opened a Kilwin's in Breckenridge, CO. I worked there with them for about a year. I discovered that I actually LOVED lots of sweets I never thought I'd love. Everything there is delicious, but their ice cream is the BEST! Try the mint chocolate chip, pralines & cream or butter pecan!
