We had to go inside when we smelled the cinnamon candy being made. Lots of people gathered at the window to watch the candy being made by had the same way for more than a century. Educational and free samples! We also bought some to enjoy for later on. There were people having lunch at the counter while others browsed... More

Going to Schimpffs is a wonderful experience. Watching the owners and staff making candy is a delight. Be sure to try the soda bar, I love the chocolate sodas, just like the ones from 50 years ago. The candy is exceptional, my favorite are the turtles, no the maple creams, no the amaretto, no...lol all of them,

A small shop with lots of heart. Great cinnamon candy that you are able to see made and then try and if you wish, buy. The family owners work together to put on a performance that makes the stop worth it beyond the wonderful tasting candy.

My partner and I had a pleasant visit earlier this month. We walked past the window and watched a worker hand dipped chocolates. Stepping inside we got to watch two workers making grape candy fish. The shop itself sold all types of candy made in store. You could have lunch and a milkshake. It was a very lovely experience. A... More

I visited the store for my birthday last year. I had always wanted to visit this store and I found a weekend to do it. It was awesome, some of the best candy I have ever eaten! I also got a great ice cream float, strawberry soda with strawberry ice cream. Yummy! We went on a Saturday and the shop... More

We stopped by and were welcomed by Mr. and Mrs. Schimpff. They were so nice to us and showed my family how to make the candy drops... Great time and a must stop if your in town.

What a delightful place to visit! After my initial trip with a friend in March, I have added Schimpff's to my list of must-visit places for family and friends. When we were there in March, we were treated to the full-scale tour that started outside and covered the history of the building. On a July visit with my granddaughter, we... More

My favorite thing to do with my grandchildren is dress up in a mask and put on white gloves and loads of bats and horns then come to your candy store and blow the horns for music. then we buys lots of sugar free candy wich has a very big laxative effect. (exspectialy on my grandchildren).

I love this place. The owners are so nice and you can tell the love making quality candy. They do candy demonstrations and at the end you get to sample the candy. The hard candy and the chocolate candies are awesome.
