Kilwin's serves modern treats with old-fashioned flavor
By Sar Muangla
For the Daily
The old-fashioned ice cream parlor
has yet to vanish from Ann Arbor.
Establishments like Kilwin's continue
to preserve the antiquity of ice cream
Opened in 1996, Kilwins Ice Cream
Parlor is a unique departure from the

Liberty, its atmosphere is anything but

Dunham, manager of the chocolate
shop. "The chocolate shop gives you a

cream parlor is larger and has a more
Both Kilwin's stores are part of the
Kilwin's franchise, started in 1947 by
Don and Katy Kilwin. The couple creat-
ed the first recipes for handmade choco-
lates in Petoskey, Michigan. Today, there
are 19 Kilwin's shops in Michigan,
including several on Mackinac Island.
