Schimpff’s Confectionery is one of the oldest, continuously operated, family-owned candy businesses in the United States. Opening for business in its present location in 1891 by Gustav Schimpff Sr. and Jr., Schimpff’s continues to delight visitors and remains a Southern Indiana family favorite. This unique confectionery and lunch room in Jeffersonville’s downtown historic district comes complete with a 50’s soda fountain and original tin ceiling. The old-fashioned candy jars, cases, and turn-of-the century equipment transport you back to the good old days of home-made candy and a real fountain drink.
Its Candy Museum and Candy Demonstration Area offer a glimpse into the world of historic candy making, packaging and advertising. Live candy-making demonstrations are frequently given. Tours are available and groups are asked to call in advance to schedule a FREE tour of the Candy Museum.
Schimpff’s is famous for its cinnamon Red Hots, hard candy fish and Modjeskas. The most recent favorite is the chocolate, caramel, and pecan candy–the Turtle.
