“Cool place to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

This is a great little candy company in Jeffersonville. they are famous for their fish candy and red hots. Also, at Valentine's Day you can go in and pick out your own empty box and get it filled with candy. Then you can bring it back year after year to get it refilled.

“Worth a trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

Called ahead and watched the process on how certain candy is made. It really was a neat experience and my kids loved it. The two owners were very nice and while it might be a little dry and rehearsed for older kids/adults it was very much worth it for kids 10 and younger. Schimpffs is just one of those places that you hope keeps going. Kind of one of those midwestern "American Dream" kind of places that takes you back to the good ole days. The old soda fountain is fun for old and new alike.

“Candy, history, candy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

Go to Schimpff's for yourself, to buy presents for your friends, and go often. They have been making great treats forever! Oh, there is also a old fashioned soad fountain and a museum of local candy making.

“Not Really a Museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I would definitely recommened this as a place any one of any age can visit and have an enjoyable time. The candy and sodas are fantastic! However, this place is not a museum. They have a room, about the size or a large bedroom, that has a nice collection of old items relating in some form to candy. It's actually kind of embarassing that they offer "tours" of their museum (an employee walks you around the room and shares a little story about various items). If they would simply drop the "museum" part of their gig, I think people would enjoy this place more. They should keep the room full of stuff (it's all actually quite neat). Just drop the "museum". It's very misleading.
