A recent visit to the historic Schimpff's Confectionery - a fourth generation family owned confectionery, candy store, soda fountain, & early American candy manufacturing museum located in Jeffersonville, Indiana, just across the Ohio River from Louisville, KY. Situated just across the river from Louisville, Kentucky, this iconic shop in downtown Jeffersonville is home to 131 years of candy making tradition!
A recent visit (1/13/2022) by myself and my father found fourth generation owners Jill & Warren Schimpff making a fresh batch of Cinnamon Red Hots! After a demonstration of the candy making process, Mr. Schimpff guided us throughout his store giving us an in-depth tour of his world class collection of early American candy manufacturing memorabilia! This amazing and beautiful collection consists of thousands upon thousands of vintage signs, tins, glass containers, industry related ephemera, toys, trinkets, candy boxes, decorations, and candy vending machines! Afterwards, we racked up sackfuls of handmade sweets and candies for our ride and confectionery gifts for those waiting back home!
My short video does not do this charming slice of American justice! There is so much to see! If you get anywhere near Louisville, KY, do yourself a favor and drop by for a visit and be prepared to step back in time and enjoy the tasty treats concocted by the Schimpff family!
