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.

Both a candy store and a history museum devoted to candy, Schimpff's Confetionary is a candy lover's dream on a beautiful little street in Jeffersonville. Walking across the fantastic bridge across the mighty Ohio River from Louisville, this town requires no car. You get to watch the confectioners creating these masterpieces. The selection is incredible, including the best array of... More

This is a must see in Jeffersonville! You have to try the red hots and see how candy was made in the past. I always enjoy swinging by and grabbing a treat.

We have been twice to Schimpffs!! You get to enjoy watching them make their specialties and even get to sample different candies they offer for sale. Each time we have left with candy purchases in our hands! It truly is so much better than store bought candy!! There is also a small cafe/diner and a small museum of many antique... More

I moved away from Indiana over 20 years ago, but never got over my obsession with Schimpff's red hots. I have to visit every time I'm back in the area, and have been known to have family ship them to me between visits. This is a fabulous little gem in downtown Jeffersonville and always a delightful experience. We recently visited... More

Schimpffs makes little Cinnamon bear candy. You can be behind a glass partition while the candy is being made. The man who makes the candy will explain what he is doing and give LOTS of history of how this little store came to be. We have been twice and CERTAINLY will return. Schimpffs is fun for people of ALL ages!!

My family and I visited here after walking the Big 4 bridge from Louisville over to Indiana. This place was well worth the visit with almost every kind of old fashioned candy and new candy that you can think of available for the choosing. There was everything from a huge variety of chocolate candies, hard candies, and sweets to an... More

We walked across a bridge from Kentucky to Indiana to visit the candy museum and it was definitely worth the walk. We were in time for a demonstration by the owners on the making of red hot cinnamon drops. They made it look easy and the samples were delicious. There are many antique candy presses that are not made anymore... More

This is the BEST CANDY MUSEUM I have seen in my travels around the country. The folks here R a working candy shop & museum where U can see the products that U can buy in the shoppe next door being made by hand in the front window of the museum. EVERYTHING is GOOD.
