Schimpff's Confectionery
347 Spring Street
Jeffersonville, IN 47130
(812) 283-8367

 

Schimpff's is happy to offer free tours of the Candy Kitchen as well as the Candy Museum. Watch candy being made on century-old equipment and enjoy browsing amidst thousands of pieces of American candy memorabilia. Tours are available to groups of up to 40. (Special arrangements can be made for larger groups.) All tours must be booked in advance. Call 812/283-8367 and ask for Jill Schimpff. By booking the tour in advance, you are assured that candy will be being made at the time of your visit. The Candy Demonstration Area, Chocolate Dipping Room, and Candy Museum are always open for viewing during normal store hours and you are welcome to visit at all times. However, without a reservation, you may not see the actual candy making process. Schimpff's is a small mom and pop business and does not have a set production schedule - the candy makers cook what they need when they need it!

The "standard" booked tour includes a guided tour of the Candy Museum as well as a live demonstration of a small batch of Schimpff's famous hard candy (generally Red Hots) being made on antique equipment. Tours can be booked for times between 10:00 AM and 3:30 PM weekdays and 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM Saturdays.

Although the tours take about 35 to 40 minutes, it is suggested that you plan some extra time so that you can enjoy the original Candy Store and eat in the Deli Lunch Room. And...don't forget to order a chocolate soda at the1950s Bastian/Blessing Soda Fountain!
