This was on our bus trip tour arranged by Lenzner (excellent bus company btw) and it was a marvelous demonstration of old fashioned candy making. I was buying gifts for the soldiers over seas and one request was hard candy. Well they make THE BEST red hots. I wish I had bought more for myself. Quite a selection and they... More

And it's not just chocolate, though there's plenty of that (including a wide selection of "sugar-free" treats, though I admit I haven't tried them). All sorts of jellies, truffles, turtles, a fun little café and soda fountain, a candy history museum, making candy. The prices are quite reasonable (about $17 for a select-your-own pound of candy) and the candies are... More

This place is awesome!! Only if you like candy.... The museum is full of history and very interesting items. It was interesting to see how the items were advertised back before shops. We had Jill give us a tour and explain how the caramel covered marshmallows were made as well as the peanut butter dipped chocolates. It included samples and... More

Bring you chocolate addiction. There is no place better. Also has a soda fountain. Make sure you walk around and see them make candy. I love this place.

Schimpffs is a functioning, historic landmark in downtown Jeffersonville. They still make some candies the old-world way. I caught a demonstration of them making red hots - fascinating - and it smelled SO GOOD! The selection of candy is unbelievable. There's plenty of free parking in the area. And there are a lot of other fun things to do within... More

We just barely beat a bus load of tourists stopping here. They have a ton of candy novelties. Pretty good. Not the best I've had. Cute little area. Worth the stop.

This place is neat you get to see the candy being made, even meet the owners! Tons of stuff to see while you're eating your candy, there's even a old nickel machine where you put in a nickel and pull a lever and you get a piece of candy! They have sugar free candy which I LOVE because the husband... More

The whole area is very cool. Lots of neat little shops and historic building. But Schimpff's has them all beat! In the same location and owned by the same family for over 120 years, you can see them making candy right up front all day long. Everyone was so friendly. There are lots of vintage items to see in the... More

From the moment we walked in, we could watch them make handmade candy. We saw from beginning to end how they made cherry pillow hard candy. It definitely intrigued me. Before buying any candy or chocolates they let you sample. They are so hospitable and help to take you back into time using antique tools. Such a fun find!

Lots of candy/chocolate options, but was very crowded (however that must be a good sign)! Seemed a little overpriced and the checkout line was long so we did not purchase anything.
