Name : Joseph Gadow Sr

In the 60's our family used to travel from Va. Bch, Va to Balt, Md on a regular basis. Maw or Paw would always stop at the Stuckey's on the way. As adults we now know it was that famous Pecan Roll that they stopped for. We 5 kids were allowed to get whatever we wanted. Now that I'm heading 500 miles from Balt. to Summerton, S.C., I'll be sure to pick up another P. Roll for my 85 year old Mother to remind her of the good ole days. After all these years I still don't know weather to pronounce it "Pee-Can", or "Pee-Con". I just take turns. Like Bob Hope, I thank you for the Memories. Joe (2017)

Name : Rich Roland

Stumbled on Stuckeys (in Tenn) while on a 1,000 mile trip to GA. Couldn't believe our eyes! Hadn't seen this since our childhoods. We bought the store out - pecan rolls, candied almonds, shirts...... Was one of the highlights of our long trip. It's one of only seven original Stuckey's left in the country. If we get back (or even near there) again, we will do it all again. SO happy we could share this experience with our youngest kids, too.

Name : Nancy

Every vacation my family always stopped at Stuckey's. As a kid I thought it was the grandest place to visit. I don't travel anymore, but I still have those great memories of vacations with my family and stopping at Stuckey's.

Name : Connie Lamm

Only traveling w g-parents did we get to go to a Stuckeys. Can't seem to find those coffee flavored, barell shaped hard candies anywhere ...my favorite!

Name : Deborah Allen

My fiance bought me some sandals because my feet were roasting from the trip home from Kemah. I fell in love with the sandals because they looked like a Native American design.

Name : wilma

As a young girl my family always stopped at Stuckey 's along the way from Ok to Pa and back. It was always an enjoyable experience. I sure miss those days. Hope to find a Stuckey's to visit again one day

Name : Karen Wynn

Every year my family went on vacation to Florida. My sister and i spotted every Stuckey's between Arkansas and Ft. Walton Beach (going and coming). After we had stopped for the third time, and weren't out of Mississippi, my dad would say there was no reason to continue the trip to the beach, since my sister and I were just as happy to go to Stucky's. That would be the moment we shut up.....till the ride back home.😬

Name : Terry Brill

My partner is a Stuckey and we always look for the hats to return. Might be hard to find the cotton with shorter bill on the hat again. He still wears the raggedy old one. The logo is about to expire and take flight, thinking of displaying under a glass bell. Please bring the Stuckey's - short billed denim hats with embroidered logo, bring the hats back so we can stock up!! Oh, and LOVE, Love, LOVE . . .your Pecan Rolls!!!

Name : Stacey Applebee ( Hunnicutt)

Growing up, my family ran and operated MANY Stuckey store locations. From Florida to Kansas! Grandparents, Aunts and parents. Was a great childhood memory!

Name : V Sarske

I love your pecan rolls they are the best. I lived in Florida and I remember going to home shows and getting them there.

Name : J.D

No big story here. But I have been to so many Stucey's in my life, and they were always a place to forward to while on Old Route 66. Stuckey's is Americana.

Name : Rita Turner

I was a military brat in the 60s and 70s and I remember everywhere we travelled we would stop at rest areas for bologna sandwiches. I remember the car was hot, travelling in summertime for hours where you didn't see much. But the stuckeys restaurants always stood out and when we stopped I would get a pecan role. We didn't dine there because my dad was on a limited income with 5 kids but I always remember stuckeys for gas, restrooms and pecan rolls. Just recently (2016) travelling through nevada and California I saw a lot of old stucky buildings still standing that are utilized for local convenience stores. Brought back a lot of memories.

Name : Judy Durham

We traveled a lot when I was a kid in the 1950s between Michigan and Tennessee. I don't know where the Stuckey's was located that I remember, but they had a huge glass wall on the inside of the building and there behind the glass was the most interesting bee hive I had ever seen!

Name : Bob Smith

Somewhere in the early 80's my friend Trevor's mother would up managing a Stucky's outside of Van Horn Tx. One summer i went out there to work for them. What wonderful memories I have of all the people that were on the road traveling and the local regulars that would come by for a shake and a bugger. Even though we were not in town, it did not feel like we were. Everyone stopped by with a smile on their face. It was my first work experience away from home and such great fun. I still remember meeting this family from St Ingbert Germany. The thing about that is that is the same small town my grandmother is from. What a small world it is, even before the internet was around. I've look on google earth for that great little store in the middle of nowhere. But just can't find it. In my mind, it's still out there, somewhere and always will be. Hey Trevor hows radar. :) Hope life has been good to you.

Name : Foster Wallace

I am 65 and my father's family was from Knoxville,TN. Before I-75 was built we, 6 kids and parents, would travel down Rt. 25 or Rt.27. We would occasionally stop for gas and food. I can remember our most favorite was STUCKEY'S. I would get a papaya drink and of course the PECAN LOG. I don't see any STUCKEY'S but look for them whenever I travel South. When we get together we always recall those trips, especially stopping at STUCKEY'S because dad wouldn't stop just anywhere. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

Name : Dawn

I remember Stuckey's as my favorite restaurant to stop at on our way to visit relatives out of state. I remember the good food, scrumptious pecan logs and fascinating souveniers and gifts. I also remember though I don't see in other comments is that there was a glassed in bee hive in the middle of the Stuckey's where honey bees could be observed. Great childhood memories.

Name : stephen romeo

we've been going to stuckey's since we were kids. and love it.

Name : John

Hadn't been to a stuckey's in over 30 years as a kid until recently taking a road trip from California to Alabama. All the great memories resurfaced!! Remember being so excited to stop in these stores as a kid....Good times....

Name : Stephanie

I remember going to Stuckey's when I was a kid, and I miss it now that I live in a place that doesn't have one. I wish they had one out here in Colorado.

Name : Melissa

Well, I never thought I would be writing about my experience with Stuckey's but here goes. In the late 70's through 80's our family would stop at Stuckey's for breakfast on our drive to Florida from NJ. Mom liked to stop at restaurants, but Dad wanted something quick (NOT fast food). When we discovered Stuckey's we found it to be a great compromise because it was a quick stop and the food was cooked to order like restaurants. Everyone could be satisfied with a stop at Stuckey's. My sister and I loved to look at all the merchandise and buy candies for the road. By the time we all grew up and had children of our own, we lost track of Stuckey's even though we continued the same yearly trek to Florida for the family vacation as adults. Our kids have not had a chance to experience Stuckey's and it wasn't until I found this website that I realized that they must have closed down gradually over the years and we just never noticed because the dynamics of the road trip changed into our adulthood. I'm hoping to explore this website and relive some great memories and maybe find a Stuckey's within driving distance that we can plan a road trip to!

Name : H Hinson

I grew up in the 1970s, and no road trip was complete without a stop at Stuckey's for some divinity, pecan log rolls, pecan-fried chicken (I have NEVER been able to find a recipe for this anywhere else), taffy and mixed nuts. We took a trip across the Southwest in 1973, and dad obliged us by stopping at every Stuckey's along the way. We always knew we'd find clean restrooms and cold drinks. I just got back from a road trip to North Carolina from Texas. What a thrill it was to find some real, blue roofed Stuckey stores along the way. I was meeting an old friend I hadn't seen in years. Long Live Stuckey's!!!!

Name : Kathy

My name is Kathy. When I was young, my parents used to take my two sisters and I on vacation to visit my Mom's family in Tennessee. My Dad always took Route 41 South. There were several Stuckey's along the way. Fresh hot apple cider and their famous Pecan Rolls. They were the best. They made such an impression on my family and I. I looked forward to our trips South every year. To this day, 50 years later, I still think of Stuckey's. How I wish there was one in Illinois. Thank you Stuckey's for giving me a such a fond memorable childhood memory.

Name : Cardinal Robbins

I remember Stuckey's in the Ozarks, when we stopped for something to drink. The DELIGHTFUL lady there asked me if I'd ever had coconut milk, which I had not. Thanks to her, I tried it...and loved it. I'm not talking about coconut WATER, which tastes like sweat (unless you tap a fresh coconut on your own), but the milk this wonderful woman made with grated coconut, milk, and a bit of sugar. Heavenly, especially to a 10 year old in 1970 on a very interesting road trip. I'm sure she's no longer with us, but she was definitely the spirit of Stuckey's fantastic service, warmth and kindness, which has stayed with me after 45-plus years.

Name : Rochelle

I remember the dog's restrooms (country dogs and city dogs). Cute idea for those traveling with pets.

Name : Dee Reed

My father is now retired military. As a youngster we were constantly traveling across this country for family and military reasons. There were 4 of us kids packed into our car. Stuckey's was like a savior to us kids! We would always stop at Stuckey's! We welcomed being able to get out, stretch our legs and take a break from traveling and eat some good grub and Stuckey's treats! Us kids were allowed to buy little mementos as well! As an adult I also would stop at Stuckey's until they went away. There are none here in my home state of NM anymore.....but in 2015 on my travels across country, I noticed one in Missouri with a cookin' made from scratch restaurant. I didn't stop but here in 2016 I did, both going and coming home! I loved it! So welcoming. The food smelled great and I wish I could've had time to stop and eat!

Name : Patty montague-Collier

My parents managed 2 of them Selinsgrove, PA.and Grasonvill, MD. and my aunts,and uncles managed a lot of them also and had good friends that managed them they are,a dying store now that they have made them into diary queens and quick marts I had good memories and a lot of growing up in Stuckey's that's where I learned a lot of work experience and car experience how to check the oil. My sisters loved the pecan log rolls and pecan divinity and the box of old south candy along with the coconut patties. My dad would build displays of the pecan clusters and pecan log rolls stack em' high and watch them fly he would say.great memories living in the back room apartment and a lot of long hours in the store. The snow birds would come and buy pecans in the bags shelled and un-shelled to make there Christmas deserts and fruit cake as gifts time I will never forget.

Name : John Chandler

The store in George, Wa. was the only place for decades where you could buy green peanuts in brine. Now the store is gone and I have to go online to find them..............tasty!

Name : Roger Wayne J.(aka wbrockstar)

Hello to all, Stuckeys brings back very fond memories because it was my very first job at 16 years old.Our store,in Kingston Springs TN,won the Highest Candy Sales Award while working there.We sold 1 million pecan log rolls in a years time.I would say 95% of our customers always bought at least 1-3 pecan log rolls for every visit.My uncle also worked there.I used to get nervous when tour buses full of many people would show up cause we would get slammed,but everyone that came through the door were always nice & friendly.The place helped me grow out of my shy personality & become outgoing.The restaurant had some great breakfast & hamburgers & like everybody else I got addicted to pecan log rolls.My band stops at Stuckeys every chance we get & its become our bus drivers favorite place to stop.Thanks Stuckeys for helping me grow up with you. Sincerely WBRockstar

Name : Mark

I have fond memories traveling from our home in New York to visit my relatives in Tennessee in the late 70's and into the 80's and stopping by Stuckeys'. The trip wouldn't have been the same without Stuckeys' and i know my family share my sentiments!

Name : Gale Luttrell

I remember traveling with my family and my dad would only stop at the Stuckey's to eat and get gas. I remember mom getting all of us (4 kids) the famous pecan logs. How tasty and good they were. To this day I still try to stop and get my log. Now today I am friends with Ron and Susan Stuckey and we were just sitting around talking and Susan still has the "eat here and get gas" tee shirt. Funny but Ron was telling the story about his grandfather...then I went online and found out Ron is related to the Stuckey's. Stories were complete. So interesting when I read the history and the story was exact. Famous friends and famous pecan logs. Love those logs😋

Name : Susan Stuckey

I grew up going to the Stuckey's in Springfield, Ohio. I liked it so well that I married a Stuckey! His family stories include a history branching from the Stuckey store history. As we travel we keep a lookout for the stores and pick up memorabilia. We collect Tshirts. I just made a pillow from a shirt I purchased 38 years ago when we were dating!! Enjoy this website.

Name : John Lambie

Many fond memories of our family trips from Illinois down to our vacation home in Florida. All along US RT 65 we would stop a a Stuckeys, loved the small pecan pies, and remember all the novel signs and gimmicks. Miss those days.

Name : Robert Harrison

My grandmother would drive us from New York State to Myrtle Beach, SC during the late 1960's. Stuckey's always was fun to get coconut patties and pralines' and Hermit crabs live and shells.

Name : Kimberly Hlavach

I remember the road trips to Florida when I was younger, and seeing and visiting the Stuckeys. I can't wait to go there now with my daughter and pass this experience on. I will also make her count the Stuckey's roadside signs like I used to do.

Name : Paris Dickey

Life is full of experiences. However seeing a stuckeys T shirt on a guy in NYC I was overwhelmed with happy memories. I had delightful flashbacks of traveling with my grandparents, stopping at Stuckeys, pecan logs, the beautiful country side and the 82 Worlds Fair. I'm so thrilled to see you're still around. Your company is truly an American Treasure.

Name : StuckInThe1970s

So happy to see these still exist! As a kid in the 70s, we'd always go into Stuckeys with the vinyl imprint of my parent's car sticking to our sweaty legs. Any kid who when on a road trip begged to go to Stuckey's. It defied those needless boundaries of race, color, nationality, class, nuclear family, single mom...DIDNT MATTER. We all would run up to the door when we parked and saw so many other kids do the same. A stop off at Stuckey's and then the hotel swimming pool if we were good a few hours down the road. More kids just like us! Just kids. Life was so good. Growing up sure did mess up those simple pleasures! Build a time machine, Please :)

Name : Jerry

We live in Georgia and the trips down to Florida some 70 years ago and stopping at The Stuckey's on the way down was 1 of the best parts of our vacation. I use to work was a man who was friends of Mr. Cicero Stuckey, down in South Ga. Stuckey's Pecan Rolls & Pralines are The Worlds Best by far. Thank You For The Memories"

Name : Wylene

I remember every time we went on a trip we stopped at a stuckeys. I was at home in the 60's and I am looking for some of that luscious candy now! We had a store about half hour away but they closed years ago. Keep the web site open!

Name : N. Hommer

I remember in the early 70's moving from WI to CA and stopping at every Stuckey's along the way. Thank you for making a 3 day move enjoyable. I love all their candy but the Pecan Logs are the best. There was still one Stuckey's in Vacaville CA but it burned down in the 90's. Just the name Stuckey's brings back such good memories. I really miss them. I hope they thrive and come out west again.

Name : Dean

On our annual summer road trip from NC to MA in the 70s to visit family, we would pay a visit to at least one Stuckey's going up and coming back. It became as much a part of our vacation as everything else. Glad to see you're still around!

Name : Sandy

My memory is going to one in Colorado. Those pecan rolls, and Rocky Mountains made a big impression to a kid!

Name : Mo M.

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of traveling around the country and stopping at Stuckey's. We always made my father stop at a Stuckey's. While Stuckey's is famous for the peanut brittle and pecan, another great memory was the Stuckey's souvenir cigar. In fact, my first cigar was Stuckey's!!! Now as an adult, I am disappoint that we don't have a Stuckey's in McKinney, TX. Please bring Stuckey's to McKinney so that I might relive my childhood.

Name : Tammy McNeill

Name : Joan Ontell

In the 60's my brother and I would play a game with road signs and put a finger in the middle of the front seat whenever we would see a Stuckey's sign!! We would drive up and down the highways with my father and his maps no GPS!!!!!!

Name : Michael Fulghum

My Dad used to sell insurance to Mr. Stuckey back in the 40's or 50's and he used to tell me how nice he was and he would bring some pecan rolls home and sometime we get some for Christmas !! Always loved stopping at a Stuckey's store on the way to Florida to see our kin.. God Bless and Merry Christmas

Name : Lynda

travelling witth my grandparents in 1967 from British Columbia down the West Coast through Wash-ington, Oregon, California to Arizona. We tried to always stop at a Stuckeys to get unusual local souveniers and the AWESOME Pecan Rolls at every stop! I was so heartbroken when Stuckeys disappeared from the West Coast!!

Name : Glenn

There will be quite a number of Canadians who will recognize the Stuckey's name synonymous with traveling throughout your American Southeastern United States. Here's to the next 80 years,glad to see the name is still around, after so many other big names have fallen by the wayside. Cheers!!!!!!

I remember stopping at Stuckey's in Delaware, now long gone. Now I stop in Virginia on Rt 13 for my Stuckey's fix. I have box of Pony Tails I'm going through now. Please don't close this store!

Name : Brad Hawkins

As a kid I remember seeing Stuckys stores, while we were headed down I-75, & just thought of them, and looked them up....they're still around!

Name : M.

As a child, we would stop at a Virginia Stuckey's on the way to the beach house. Stuckey's treats were such a delight. Sadly, after recently receiving an online order, I understand why their stores closed and the company is failing. The quality of their products is now simply awful and their customer service is worse. Keep your memories and your $$. Don't buy from this site. M

Name : RICK BRANT

Although I no longer hear your commercials in my area of Illinois (like I did in the 1960s), I will always remember "Make every trip a pleasure trip, when you stop at Stuckey's!". If I can travel in any area with a Stuckey's these days, I'm sure it will be a 'pleasure trip' every time, as it always had been! I thank God and you for bringing the good back again.

Name : Craig Allen

I enjoyed Stuckey's, and Horne's, on many roadtrips with my parents when I was young! And also many times on the road when I was grown! I sure do miss them! They used to be everywhere! I guess the good old days are good forever!

Name : Beth Herman

When I was a little girl, every summer Dad would take us to Hot Springs, Arkansas to visit Grandma and Grandpa Lewis. On the way there traveling from Texas we would always stop by Stuckeys in Texarkana and Dad would let us get a snack and a small souvenir from that place. They had all kinds souvenir things and of course alot of pecan logs! One of my favorite childhood memories!

Name : Will Kirchmeyer

I have many good memories of Stuckey's from my childhood. My parents believed in traveling and my family and I have seen a lot of this great country via road trips. I think one of the main ways to have an American experience is by doing road trips. I always loved when we stopped at Stuckey's: the food items (pecans, drinks, etc..) the other misc items that kids loved such as the monster stickers (Universal monsters: Frankenstein, Wolf man, etc..) that my brother and I collected. It is good to see that an American icon such as Stuckey's is still in existence. I also like your website and plan on buying a few items ASAP. The Kirch

Name : Gary

When my parents, my sister and I was on vacation traveling out of state going to sites we would always stop at Stuckeys, to get food to eat and a piece of candy. I like to pecan log , My parents can't travel now, but we do miss stooping. Thanks for having them on the side of the highways. Thanks Gary

Name : Cathy

Glad to hear you're still around & improving. Lots of childhood travel memories associated with Stuckey's. So glad it's back in the family.

Name : Linda Kay

Back in the mid 1950's when I was around 10 years old, my parents would load me and my two brothers into our Chevrolet station wagon and begin our journey to visit relatives in Tampa, Florida. As we drove south from Pennsylvania we began the search for the first Stuckey's of the trip. My mother was hooked on the Pecan Log Rolls and the rest of us loved the Pecan Pralines and just about everything else in the store! We stopped at every Stuckey's we encountered and stocked up on all the precious pecan candies we could. Mother also fell in love with the alligator purses for sale in the stores. They would never be offered for sale in this day and age, but they certainly were in the fifties. Mother bought one for herself and one smaller (fashioned for little girls) for me. Do you remember the ones with the alligator head on the front of the purse and then the rest of the alligator would be on the reverse side? We just loved them and I still have my Mother's purse but have no idea where my little prize ended up! There were so many things about the memories associated with our stops at each Stuckey's and they will remain in my heart and soul forever. It was all part of our lives as we travelled south and then home to Pennsylvania again. After each trip to Florida we would begin dreaming about the next one and all the while knowing it would include numerous stops at each Stuckey's! Thanks for all the memories!!

Name : J. R.

Stuckeys was always a part of or family trips. From about 1960 till all the Stuckeys in the southwest were gone, we always got excited to see that familiar blue roof and bright sign that meant as much as (and sometimes more than) the destination. How sad it was to see the last one vanish into our memories, turned into a mexican restaurant or just fall into disrepair like a ghost town saloon. Please bring at least one store back to the southwest...maybe along the I-15?

Name : Dave

My goodness I miss the long-ago times when making travels down Route 66 from Albuquerque and as a kid always on the lookout for a Stuckey's where my parents would stop for a fill-up - because back then there was a divinity treat given with a fill-up of gas :) and there was that great little store to poke around in and a lunch counter for a burger or a grilled cheese. I loved those days and glad to know Stuckey's can still be found around Georgia. Yay for Stuckey's!!

Name : Lauren

My Grandparents managed the Whitakers, NC Stuckey's for over 30 years. I grew up there as my mother worked there everyday and my grandmother kept my sister and I in the apartment in the back. It was a fantastic childhood and gave me an ingrained work ethic. My first job was in the restaurant.

Name : Frederick Leiserson

I was only able to go to the Stuckey's in Vacaville California one time and then it was gone. I miss it terribly every time I drive by where it was. Somebody must have lost a lot of money building it for that short of time. If I was rich I'd reopen Stuckey's all over the country

Name : Steve

Part of my childhood was spent in Colorado and as a family we would take trips to New Mexico and along route 66. What fond memories I have of Stuckey's along the way. There were plenty of Stuckey's in Colorado but along route 66 it had a different feel to it. I dearly miss those days and the Stuckey's experience. My sisters ( and mom ) always had a way to convince our dad to pull into any and all Stuckey's along the way. I now live in Oregon and the last Stuckey's building I saw was along highway Interstate 5 ( I-5 ) in Woodburn. It was taken down a couple of years ago and so sad to see it go. Would be nice to see a revitalization of Stuckey's and the experience for today's generation as they just don't know what they're missing even with all their electronic gadgets of today.

Name : Sherry

We were talking today at work about traveling and what were our fondest memories. I live in Oregon and we traveled to Louisiana, Stuckey's was our favorite place to stop for pecan rolls, bathroom and cold drinks plus as kids we liked to look at all the cool gifts. As we were talking today I mentioned I have not seen one in a number of years, it was disheartening when I looked it up to see only a few in the mid and southern states. I miss that family tradition of stopping.

Name : joanne volpe

oh my god Stuckeys!!! we traveled alot and always ,I mean always stopped at every Stuckeys we drove by...my mom was addicted to your pecan rolls..I would sit there watching her eat them ..."may I have just an end piece? " no response just the sound of the empty wrapper hitting the lip of the garbage can falling to the floor taunting me with slivers of caramel stuck on the crumpled wrap... fortunately I had bought my own with my allowance ...oh that pecan roll a bit of heaven here on earth...

Name : Ken E.

As a family I remember many vacation trips by car from Illinois and a stop at Stuckey's was always included. Now I have a family of my own, and have since moved to North Carolina. It is a thrill to share Stuckey's with my kids. I travel for work on occasion, and my kids look forward to when I stop at a Stuckey's on the road and bring home a treat. Stores have changed from the stand alone stores I remember. Those are hard to find, but the Stuckey's name is still going strong in my household.

Name : Peggy

When we lived in Illinois, we would take trips home to Wisconsin we always stopped at Stuckey's and I always got a pecan roll, they are still my favorite candy bar.

Name : Eleanor

Years of traveling in a camper with our 3 kids, during the 60's, we would try to pass by a Stuckey's but no way. Everyone wanted some kind of candy. My husband and I preferred the best Pecan Log ever. The kids would get their favorite. Off we would go until another Stuckey's appeared. Living in Charleston, SC they are not easy to find, but what a great online service. Just sent my son in MT a big box of Pecan Logs.

Name : reycraig333

My dad was a Navy career man. So, our family spent a lot of time traveling to naval duty stations for his new assignments. We also spent many days/night on the road traveling to my grandparents farm whenever my dad could get leave (vacation). My best memories as a kid are stopping at Stuckey's during these road trips. I later joined the military myself. I try to stop at Stuckey's during my travels.

Name : Andrew Mills

Stopping at Stuckeys was always a highlight of the trip across Kansas. There was even a Stuckeys with a live beehive you could see inside of.

Name : Terri

I grew up in Stuckey's stores as my parents were managers in 3 stores over 8 years. 2 in Michigan and 1 in Illinois. Turned out to be my 1st job. Couldn't beat the sugar & spice pecans!

Name : Catherine Simmons

I remember traveling from our home in Mexia Texas, along I 45 to Dallas Texas to see my grandparents and stopping at the Stuckey's. I believe it use to be in Wilmar Hutchinson Texas. We would get the pecan milkshake and the pecan roll. (yuuummmm) I sure do miss those trips with the Stuckey's added in.

Name : Theresa Nichols

I am 44 years old. When I was a kid we use to drive from Albany, OR to Eugene, OR. You use to have a stucky's on the way. You would have all sorts of warm nuts and candy. We missed it when you closed it.

Name : Joel

We loved seeing the billboards for Stuckey's during our family road trips in the early 1970s. Sometimes my dad would stop for lunch and we always got a treat to eat in the car as we were leaving. Today I always try to stop in GA on my way to FL from MI.

Name : Katy (Hudson) Silva

My family would travel from San Leandro, CA to Marysville, MI during the summer in the 70's and 80's.... Those long hot trips along Highway 80 brought us much joy when we would run across a Stuckey's. Thank you for making our trips that much sweeter with those delicious pecan-rolls!!!! And for making wonderful family memories!!

Name : Lisa M

Our family used to take yearly road trips from Iowa to Florida during the Christmas school break. My little brother and I kept our eyes peeled for Stuckey's billboards, and that's when the begging would begin! "Dad, can we stop at Stuckey's? Pleeeease?" Though my dad was a "drive on through, stop for nothin'" kind of guy, we'd eventually wear him down (my mother helped a little) and oh boy, then the happy countdown of miles began! "Only ten more miles! Only three more miles!" Our favorites were the hard candy sticks in zillions of flavors (we were allowed five each), while my mother stocked up on pecan rolls. It's been almost 50 years, and I still look for those billboards when we travel. The excitement has never worn off!

Name : Mitch

I remember the long drives from Boston to S. Fl in the 1960's along old US Highways 301, 17, and finally the interstate 95. It was exciting to see the billboards along the way and watch the evolution of the Stuckey's architecture. Texaco gas signs (29 cents/gal) and all of the novelties drew us in.

Name : Deborah Dayton

Every vacation we took in the 1960's and early 70's we would look for and stop at Stuckeys and buy Taffy and Pecan log rolls. What great memories I have of those family vacations and Stuckeys is a part of them!

Name : Kat blodgett

We grew up in Las Vegas, NV. On Hwy 93/95 between Las Vegas and Henderson, was your store. We would go on family outings, long drives through the desert, sightseeing and exploring a few times a month. And Stuckeys was always on the way home. We lived right off the highway near your location. And we would stop for a treat/snack/food, never gas. Lol The city had grown now, and the old location is practically city center for Henderson now. Your store holds fun childhood memories for us And I wish my son could've shared in them.

Name : chlowenberg

So many memories of watching the road signs teasing you of how many more miles until Stuckey's. Love the surprise sack and saving the log role as long as I could. I miss having the experience for my children driving down they long Texas roads. Thank you for your web sight to be able to order the treasures y'all make. Cathy

Name : Scott Boyle

In Michigan, thee were any number of these we would go by on our way up north. We would be in a campground, while dad and his friend tried to catch fish. On the way home, we passed by Stuckey's again. We knew better than to ask twice to stop at the places other kid's parents stopped at coming from up north. Ergo, I never set foot in one. Never tasted the candy. We were only allowed the fish dad and his friend caught to have to eat on vacation. My childhood sucked. I would love to try one of these. :(

Name : SHARON STUCKEY

With the last name of Stuckey you can be sure during every childhood vacation our father "religiously" stopped at every Stuckey's along the highways we traveled! I still have one of the kids "indian beaded" belts that spells out Stuckey's, I got when I was about 8 years old. The pecan logs were my favorite. My dad used to fill up on the divinity. We also used to get a hamburger and coka cola, if we had been good during the long drives. Those were the days!

Name : Kathy Brown

My first job was at Stuckey's in Centerville, Indiana along I-70. I was 14 years old and I worked there for almost 4 years. I loved it and it taught me a lot of responsibility. To this day I can count back change without having to put the amount in the register for it to tell me what the change should be. Stuckey's has gone through many changes, but it is still located in Centerville along I-70.

Name : Angela Thompson

I remember the Stuckey's that was along I-35 at the Randall, IA exit. It was one of the stores that shut down in the 1980's. The closest Stuckey's is in neighboring states now.

Name : Scott Kubiszyn

A most stop on our to Cleveland to see family. Would always buy apricot syrup. Hard to believe that was 45 years ago. We still talk about Stuckeyes

Name : Candice Ondrea

I love stuckey s! My family used to stop at the same one when we would go on our road trip to see our grandmother in Georgia. I always loved to look and the neat things in the store. On my way to Charleston and will stop by your way soon.

Name : Sheree

Stopped at the Rockport Stuckey's. Haven't been in one in over 45 years. Still remember the pecan logs and how my mom always had to have one. Then it was carefully rationed out. Bought two small pecan logs and ate them both in quick order. A different taste than I recall from childhood, but still worth the walk down memory lane.

Name : Susan

My mom managed a stuckys in Waxahachie Texas back in 1979. It was fun living in the back of the store. When I woke up I always had breakfast made for me. We would occasionally see big tour buses come through with musicians. You never knew who was going to stop in. Unfortunately there was a motorcycle gang that came through one night and tried to break in. It was scary and my mom didn't feel it was safe for us so she had to resign. I miss the pecan logs and the divinity and all the other roadside memorabilia they carried.

Name : Sandra

Growing up and traveling to our grandparents house several times a year, my Dad always stopped at Stuckey's for your Pecan Log! I was never so happy when I was old enough to have my very own Log! Sharing with four siblings was rough! It was always the best part of our three hour drive! Great memories and 60+ years later...it is STILL my favorite treat! Thank You for continuing to make the BEST!!!

Name : Tiffney W

The one located outside Gulfport MS was awful! The service is very rude and I hope it gets fixed because it is at a great location.

Name : Sharon

Every year our family took a vacation to Florida. We would always stop at Stuckey's to fill up and to get our favorite candy the pecan divinity. My mom just loved the candy and after she let us try it we loved it too. Back then candy was a real treat and something we really only had on vacation. Even to this day my sister and I always reminisce about this part of our childhood! It is funny how the taste of that candy can bring back such good memories.

Name : Kim Englett

When I was a child, my family and I would travel all throughout the US and we always stopped to get gas, peanut brittle, pecan rolls, food at Stuckey's and this was my best memory as a child traveling and I just found out the other day that Stuckey's was still around. I believe you can buy peanut brittle in drug stores here in Texas. I might have to order some of the divinity online, yum!

Name : Gary Morningstar

My Father has a great deal of family in Florida, and we lived in Ypsilani, MI. We used to take US 23 to I-75 then to Florida. I remember Stuckey's being ubiquitous all the way down. Mom especially loved the pecan logs and pralines. I once bought my first "Black Velvet" painting at one in Ohio...it was of Alice Cooper! I loved your storesAll through the '60's, '70s and '80s...There used to be a Stuckey's near Jackson, MI but it has been gone since the early '90s....Miss you folks!

Name : john

Whenever we drove to Florida, how can you not look forward to seeing stuckeys all the way down? I would say its an family tradition

Name : Mike Sawyer

The first five years of my life were spent living in the 2nd floor apartment of Stuckey's in Sanford, NC. Having recently turned 60 years of age, I am glad to have found that store in your gallery.

Name : William

I remember how good the strawberry milkshakes were on a hot day of traveling.

Name : Jack Brickman

Love, Love, Love Stuckey's. Being from Arkansas it's always nice to stop into the Arkadelphia store and load my kids up on some good ole fashion Southern delight. Jack.

Name : Elizabeth Fi nchum

We just passed a Stuckey on I 40 in New Mexico. Growing up we always stopped at Stuckey between Little Rock, AR and Ft. Worth, TX. We would eat lunch or get a snack of nuts or something. It's a tradition and fond memory that will never be forgotten.

Name : Robert Turner

I worked at Stuckeys for 2 years while in high school and enjoyed the experience greatly. Met lot of interesting people and pumped a lot if gas from 25 to 35 cents a gallon. Yes it was in the early 70's. Was so disappointed when they closed down. I at least like, today get to enjoy a Stuckeys product or two on occasion. I used to have a book describing the history of Stuckeys pecan plantation and stores but have not seen it when I moved out of my parents home many years ago. If anyone knows where I could find one I'd be interested in purchasing it. Maybe I'll make it out to Eastman Georgia one these years and check them out. Lot of good memories

Name : James Malcolm Clingan

My parents got a job managing a Stuckey's store when I was eight year old and they trained to run a Stuckey's in Marion Arkansas and then moved from Memphis to the Stuckey's store at Interstate 40 and 69 hiway in Decatur Tennessee and from 8 years old to 21 years old when I finished tech school I lived and I was raised in the back of a Stuckeys store. I moved back to Memphis in October of 1979 and have been here ever since but I have a cabin on the Tennessee river 5 miles from where the Stuckeys store was Yeah it was torn down many many years ago but I still have sweet memories every time a get off on exit 126 to go to the cabin;)

Name : Darin M. Vaughan

Long time ! No see ! I havn't been to Stuckey's in such a long time! I miss ya'all!

I remeber the reserection plant's, rose pod's(sachet), & peanut plant starter kit's!

Name : Nikki Kasper

Thank goodness Stuckey's is still around - although I had no idea you were! I recall as a child, stopping at Stuckey's in several locations between Texas, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. We traveled from Texas and Arizona to Colorado each November for deer hunting; this was also one of our road trip vacations each year - I think from 1965-1976 or so. I remember seeing the road-side billboards declaring "9 more miles to Stuckey's!" or the like. Each sign caused more anticipation in the car - and it was an early teaching moment as well. When we'd finally get to Stuckey's, my Mama and I would hit the bathroom - whew! And after that, we'd walk up and down each aisle, looking at all the beautiful packaging of those sweet treats! I remember Mama saying 'We're only going to get divinity - I can't afford to buy it all!' Mama would share a heavenly bite with me - makes my mouth water thinking of it still. Back in the car we'd go, on to our next destination! Imagine my surprise as an adult, to see a Stuckey's near the New York/Ohio border in Pennsylvania! My husband and I lived in the Chicago area back in the 80s and 90s and we had traveled by car to a hockey camp in Sarnia, Ontario. Coming back through the States on our return to Chicago, we stumbled upon a Stuckey's and stopped. This was around 1992 I think - I was then 32, and had children aged 9, 5 and 2. This Stuckey's had a DQ grill inside and they were open - at 630am!!! We stopped and relived my childhood while we had breakfast. This time I was able to buy both divinity AND a pecan log roll for my husband. Thank you for your persistence in bringing Stuckey's back. As I look toward retirement, my plans are to return to the southwest United States. I hope to find a Stuckey's there someday - after all, Stuckey's is a part of my fond memories of childhood. Thank you!

my dad always stopped at stuckey's when I was growing up on our road trip fs from new york to florida. remember eating hamburgers fries and coke with my siblings. I did It with my daughter also. whenever we traveled & saw a stucky's we stopped.

Name : Tom Davis

My first 'memory' of a Stuckey's is from1954 in Eastman. It was August, I'd just turned 4 and Daddy said he had a 'treat' for me. I remember my first Stuckey's log roll like it was yesterday. There was nothing else like 'em anywhere. There still isn't. As good and as unique as a Nu-Way wiener on Cotton Avenue in Macon. After seeing (and hearing) how much we enjoyed them Mama started making her own divinity, which was excellent - but there was something special about "Stuckey's" and we stopped there every year going and coming home. We started traveling from our home in Warner Robins to New Smyrna Beach, FL that year and went annually from '54 until around 1963 visiting lots of places in Florida, the last year I remember us taking a trip of any type as a 'family' with everyone present. I met a really cute Eastman girl when our Rumble Jr. High 8th grade basketball team traveled to Eastman for a game, she was an Eastman cheerleader, also an 8th grader and she told me she 'helped out' at Stuckey's. I don't remember her name but she was pretty. I don't remember Stuckey's ever having any employees that young, either ... and I have no idea what she did for you there. I was very happy when your family reclaimed the chain and I'm delighted with your revival and expansion. Texas and South Carolina pecans are excellent - but Middle Georgia grows the best pecans and the best peaches in America. There's something really special about that land between the Ocmulgee River and Gum Swamp. Great good luck to you going forward! Long live Stuckey's!

Correction to my earlier comments. Should have said "It wouldn't have been before the 1960's " My first experience with Stuckey's between Texas and California began in 1961 and 1962 and then about every three years since, so the "Message Displays" might have been sometime in or around the 1960's or later, but not earlier. I am an amateur travel writer and historian and just trying to pin the dates and particulars on the subject. Thanks !

Name : Robert

I have sent an enquiry to Stuckey's but I wonder if anyone can remember when Stuckey's had sort of a monitor type display and keyboard where you could type in a message for your friends or relatives to read as they stopped in a Stuckey's along the way ? It wasn't connected to the Internet - I believe this was well before that - I wouldn't venture a guess a date but it wouldn't have been sometime in the 1960's or later. It was sort of an e-mail of the times. We have made trips from Texas to California about every three years since 1961and Stuckey's have been our "Rest Stops" on many of those trips. Too bad there aren't many of them still around between Texas and California.

Name : Kevin

Many fond memories of your stores during the 60's and 70's driving to Florida on summer family vacations. Am driving to Florida later in the month. Can't wait to stop by and purchase some pecan divinity.
