This place is great for families, young minds, and CANDY- LOVERS. The staff is nice and you can watch them make candy right in front of you the old fashioned way. Candy tastes great. We go there every chance we get.😀

From turtles to red hots to the warmth and friendliness of the staff, Schimpffs is the best place in Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky! They even have a real soda fountain and lunch!

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!
