Schimpff’s Confectionery is a family-owned shop that has been creating sweets and treats for more than 100 years. They are most well known for their cinnamon Red Hots, hard candy fish, and marshmallow caramel Modjeskas, which they make using traditional equipment and techniques to this day. In addition to these, you can buy chocolates, lemon drops, and a wide variety of other candies.
Because they’ve been in operation since 1891, they have a treasure trove of candy packaging, advertisements, and other memorabilia that you can view during a self-guided tour (guided tours are also available, but must be scheduled in advance). Schimpff’s also holds live candy-making demonstrations throughout the day. You’ll never taste a fresher piece of candy than the still-warm Red Hot samples they hand out after the demonstration.
