“The oldest candy shop in America!”

Schimpff's Confectionery is a historic candy maker, confectionery store and museum located in Jeffersonville, Indiana, within the Old Jeffersonville Historic District. It was opened in 1891 by Gustav Schimpff Sr. and Jr. at the current site, although the family had been making candy in the Louisville, Kentucky area since the 1850s. The business has remained in operation the entire time. It is most famous nationwide for its Red Hots, although it also features Modjeskas (caramel-covered marshmallows named after the Polish actress Helena Modjeska who once visited Louisville) and hard candy fish. The museum, attached to the store, features candy exhibits throughout the ages, including Hershey's and Nestlé's paraphernalia.It was featured on the History Channel's Modern Marvels and by the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana in 2004. It is also noted as one of Indiana's seven "Hidden Treasures."See also List of attractions and events in the Louisville metropolitan area

One of the most charming couples I have ever met. I thought this stop would be just a quick little demonstration, but instead I got lost in the place's history and the friendliness of the family. This is a must-see in Jeffersonville!

Great museum, but I would try the chocolate before buying much of it. (It's just not that great.) Still happy I stopped by.
