When traveling around Colorado, I always like looking for a place to treat my sweet-tooth. According to one source, one of Colorado's best candy shops is located right here in Fort Collins. Only In Your State, has complied a list of the top-ten candy shops in Colorado, some I have visited, and others I'm now planning to visit. But landing at number five on their list is Kilwins Chocolates & Ice Cream, located on College Avenue in Fort Collins.

My wife and I stumbled onto Kilwins on a date night a few months back, and it was a great surprise. Not only does Kilwins have a large selection of sweets, and great ice cream. But they are mostly known for their amazing variety of candy apples, and unlike other stores, their candy apples are available year round.

Here is the rest of the list from Only In Your State:

1. Estes Park Old Fashioned Candy Store - Estes Park (I can't wait to visit the next time I head to Estes Park... Let see what I'm doing this weekend)

2. Enstrom Candies - Grand Junction

3. Pikes Peak Chocolate and Ice Cream - Manitou Springs (One of the locations I have visited, and a definite must when in the Colorado Springs area)

5. Kilwins Chocolates and Ice Cream - Fort Collins

6. Assorted Goods and Candy - Louisville

7. Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory - Durango (Just because it's a chain, doesn't mean it can't rock!)

9. Telluride Truffle - Telluride
