From an email:

“Kilwins D.C opened its second location in the District of Columbia on Monday January 16th at The Wharf, the city’s preeminent waterfront destination (663 Water Street SW). Kilwins, best known for its original recipe ice cream and Mackinac Island fudge, began in Petoskey, Michigan and today has more than 150 franchised locations across the United States. Kilwins was founded in 1947 by Don and Katy Kilwin, who began the business as a chocolate and confections store.  

“We are thrilled to open D.C.’s second Kilwins location within the vibrant culture of The Wharf,” said Kilwins D.C. Owner Jason Cherry. “The Wharf offers residents and visitors a remarkable and unparalleled experience, making it a natural fit for Kilwins’s premium sweet treats and excellent service.” 

Kilwins offers a variety of nostalgic confectionary products, many of which are hand-crafted using a copper kettle. The products made in store include fudge, caramel corn, brittle and caramel apples, as well as chocolate dipped confections including Oreos, pretzels, marshmallows, Rice Krispies® and Twinkies®. Kilwins’ famous chocolate Tuttles, truffles, and heritage chocolates are hand crafted using the same techniques that have been used since 1947.  

Kilwins opened its first Washington D.C. location in the summer of 2021 in the Navy Yard district across from Nationals Park. Franchisee and owner Jason Cherry has entered into a development agreement with Kilwins to open an additional two stores in the District of Columbia over the next four years. Potential locations for future stores include Georgetown, Buzzard Point and Chinatown.  

Kilwins D.C. invites you to try our delicious ice cream and confections next time you are visiting The Wharf.”

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
