Shimpff's Candy

If you are going to visit the Louisville area this summer, you MUST stop into Schmipff's Candy! This is a candy store like no other. They make their own hard candy along with chocolates. It is amazing to watch them make their hard candy. My class recently visited there on their field trip. They mmix the candy and then they run it through these copper rollers and the shape is imprinted on the candy. They then lift the strip of candy and drop it, leaving behind small pieces in the shapes they cut them. They have been featured on The Food Channel several times. They also have a candy museum. For this daughter of a candy salesman, it is a favorite place to go! They make the most amazing red hots you will ever find! There chocolates are not too bad either!
