When I saw the sign that downtown Grand Rapids was getting a KILWINS in the old Mckay tower, I was beyond excited!  This has special meaning for me, as grew up about 6 blocks from the headquarters of Kilwins in Petoskey!

If you're not familiar, Kilwins is nothing short of fantastic chocolates and other good stuff. It's not cheap, but it's not cheap chocolate either. This is the real deal. Good stuff. Even better, I bet they will have ice cream, which is exactly what downtown GR needs. I cannot tell you how many times people have asked where they can get ice cream when downtown.  There used to be a Fannie Mae Candy store where Madcap is now, but that was at least 15 years ago.

So I say yes to Kilwins and yet another cool addition to a growing downtown GR!
