My wife and I were invited to dinner at our friend’s house in Hendersonville. Following dinner, one of our hosts suggested that we head downtown Hendersonville for dessert to a place called Kilwin’s. It sounded familiar but honestly I couldn’t place it at all.
Back to having dessert. We went in with the idea of eating some ice cream so to make the decision easier for myself I stuck to the original plan. A couple dozen ice cream flavors await but again I went for an old stand by for myself, toffee ice cream – YUUUMMMM! I thought I was doing well, despite making the rest of my party wait for me to make up my mind. Crap, another choice. What kind of cone? I don’t know, I’m a rooky and they asked me what kind of cone! The rest of my party helped me with this choice and I went with the waffle cone. They weren’t really being helpful as much as they were being impatient.
It was a hot afternoon so we enjoyed our ice cream inside the air conditioned Kilwin’s where I plotted what chocolates, candies and truffles I would send to myself. Looking out for my reputation – I’m not an easy mark or so I tell folks.
This is Kilwin’s description of itself:
Kilwin's of Hendersonville opened in April 2000. The city's historic downtown area was perfect for an old-fashioned confectionery. Come on in and watch fudge being paddled to smooth creaminess. Watch peanut, cashew, or pecan brittle being flipped and spread on the huge marble table. Stop in and take a big bite out of local apples being dipped in homemade caramel. Take a deep breath of aroma, close your eyes, slip a sample in your mouth and release your inner child!
