My husband and I recently visited This candy store and museum. While there, they demonstrated how to make "red hots" candy...how interesting plus we were all given a warm sample. Delicious. It was a fun place to visit ..

Visiting here is like a step back in time! Not only is the candy A#1delicious, but the store itself is a veritable museum. We got homemade peanut butter cups, red velvet dried cherries, black forest truffles, Schimpff's signature red hots, and milk chocolate covered caramels. Oh, my, my....just talking about it makes me want to drive the few hundred miles... More

Shimpffs is nearly world famous for its homemade candies especially the red hots! Carmel apples and chocolates are to die for! Don't miss out on this one!

The kids loved it!! I homeschool my kids and we wanted a field trip. They were so accommodating even to such a small group. They usually give a free cinnamon candy sample. YUM!!! There's so much history to be learned there as well. It's a win win!! My kids are 8, 14 & 16. They all had a great time.... More

The candy was good but the history was better! What an amazing story of one family's craftsmanship. I enjoyed seeing all of the unique candy molds. We were on a tour and spent an enjoyable time there.

Have lots of chocolate, candies, and gifts for all occasions. Plus they box your goodies up really pretty. .....Their chocolate pecan and walnut turtles are out of this world!.....To die for!!! Moderately prices and well worth the prices for the quality of treats you purchase.

It was the last place we visited while in Jeffersonville and it was simply wonderful. We enjoyed it all - the soda fountain, the candy making demo, the candy museum. You just don't find places like this any more and it's still family-owned. We talked a lot with the owners and they are the nicest, friendliest people you'll ever get... More
