“Great Old Time Candy Shop”

Schimpffs Confectionery

Attraction details
Reviewed 19 May 2014

This little gem has a lot of vintage candy containers in their museum, as well as a vintage vending machine that actually works for only a nickel. We were greeted by a friendly employee that told us the history of the store and the location. He offered samples of the awesome red hots and some great chocolate. I was a little disappointed that we missed the demonstration of how they made red hots, but the owners were at a meeting. They did have a video showing how the candy is made, so it wasn't a total loss. The store has many candies to choose from, but don't leave without some red hots to take home.

Schimpffs Confectionery is a wonderful little family owned candy store in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Upon entering the store you are greeted to a candy making demonstration. They do a wonderful job engaging the crowd and are truly enthusiastic about their work. While you are learning about candy making you also learn about the antique equipment that is still used by them today. If you don't want to stay for the demonstration just step to the back to look at the antique candy store items or go to your left to the candy store. Inside the candy store is a wonderful lunch bar. Their chocolates and candies don't leave you wanting for anything. Every year we go here to pick up Easter Candy. Despite being busy on Good Friday, everyone is pleasant and we always leave with a happy feeling. Our kids who are now teenagers are always thrilled to see that the Easter Bunny hopped by Schimpffs to fill their baskets.

Fun candy museum with homemade chocolates and to die for red hots. Old Time cafe too. Love to buy a piece of candy for my kids on the way home.

Stop by for a visit to see old time candy making first hand. The red hots are awesome as is all the chocolate. Perfect place to get a unique candy gift!

The red hots are the tops! The chocolate melts to die for. To wash everything down, be sure to get a chocolate soda, back to the 50's again. The best ever!!
