LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A friendly competition is bringing Jeffersonville closer to Sweden.
In August, Warren and Jill Schimpff of Schimpff's Confectionery flew off to Sweden to compete as the only Americans in an international candy contest.
Needless to say, a Swede took the top prize.
But they had such a great time, they wanted to return the invitation. Through Sunday, they are hosting Swedish candy maker, Carl-Johan Arnesson -- "Calle (pronounced Call-LEE)" to his friends.
For the rest of the week, Calle will demonstrate the making of "Polkagris" (pronounced Polka-GREASE), meaning Dancing Pig. It is similar to American candy canes, but includes pure vinegar that makes the treat slightly chewy.
You can meet and see Calle in action Thursday night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. during Schimpff's Holiday Open House.
