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.
