Kilwins opened up a location in Patchogue, New York and it is positively lovely.
The aroma of chocolate tickles your nose as soon as you walk through the door, so you know you are in the right place. There are display cases full of fudge and items drenched or dipped in chocolate. They have a variety of ice cream flavors and even one called Patchogue Mud. I’ve seen Patchogue mud, and this looks a million times better.
The owner told me that they were in the process of making fudge, so that’s why it smelled so delicious. Whenever I am in a bad mood from now on, I will just stop into Kilwins and that smell will lift my spirits. It’s a plan.
The Peanut Butter Drop is an amazing treat if you like chocolate and peanut butter. There were tiny crisps in the drop that really added to the texture and taste. If it were Christmastime, I would ask for this from Santa. When asked about these little delights, John, the owner of the Patchogue location, said, “No one makes Peanut Butter Drops like we do. These are unique to Kilwins.”
And, I say keep that recipe a secret forever because these are too good to share. I didn’t.
