We stopped in here while walking the bridge. Lots of good candies and ice cream to choose from and our daughter got a free ice cream sundae for her b'day. Some neat history also. If you're in the area, it's worth a stop in.

Loved our visit to this retro candy store. Friendly even though packed with people. My daughter turned 9 today and as we were checking out she overhead her conversation and sent her to get a free turtle sundae for her birthday. Was very sweet 🍨 was also served samples by Mrs. Schimpff herself!

On one hand I really enjoyed them making the red hots (even bought a 16 oz container). However, the prices are pretty high. My brother and I spent about $42 there on candy and really didn't buy all that much. One thing we hated and I even said it there was that many of their candies in the bags were... More

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.
