I was born in the 1950's in the Chicago area, & during the 60's we took many family vacations, my parents, bother, sister, & I - all car trips of course! Twice to south FL as well as Washington D.C., New York City, Niagra Falls, & many other places. One of the highlights of these trips was stopping at Stuckey's - none of us kids ever had to use the bathroom unless we saw a sign for a Stuckey's coming up! Dad would gas up the car, we'd eat if it was meal time, & we all loved the store - the candy! The games & puzzles & toys! By the end of the trip the back of the family station wagon would be cluttered with the many Stuckey's souveniers purchased along the way. I get nostalgic now just thinking about those trips & Stuckey's - thanks for some great memories!

I remember when our family would go on vacation we would always stop at a stuckeys and bet a jar of the coconut powder that you mix in milk. It was so good, I have not been able to find it in years. Does anyone remember it?

My Grandfather, Paul Willard, work for Stuckey's at the Eastman, Georgia plant for many years. As a smill child I got to tour the plant with him when I was visiting. I'll never forget the huge cauldron of chocolate in the plant and the smells it gave off. It was much better than the scene in Willy Wonka where they visit the chocolate room -- this was REAL! Best of all was all the Stuckey's candy he would share with us -- chocolate and maple fudge, turtles, etc. I sure do miss my grandfather now that he's passed on -- but I can still get Stuckey's!

Some of the best memories as a child were when we would pull into a Stuckey's and get a pecan log roll. I loved the Mexican Jumping beans that were in the vending machines, also.
