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.

This is a cute shop with a candy museum that documents and demonstrates over a hundred years of candy making. There were plenty of candy to purchase as well as an ice cream shop. Worth a visit.

This place is great. I feel I have gone back in time. You have to try the red hots. Love the idea of hearts for valentine's day. We stop every time we get to Jeff.

Schmipffs is a family-owned and operated candy store, candy museum and soda fountain. You can watch the employees "sign" the different types of chocolates in the window by the way they swirl the tail of the chocolate as they are hand dipped. I was just in there and needed a half-pound of chocolate fudge without nuts and the owner offered... More
