My Father worked for the Wilson Sporting Goods Company of River Grove, IL. for over 30 years. On My summer vacation from school our whole Family would travel on business trips with him all over the Country in the 1960's and 1970's. On the way to our destinations, we would stop at EVERY Stuckey's on the way. We would pronunce the name like Stookies. I seem to remember a jingle that went like this: "Mother Father Sister Brother all stop at Stuckey's". We sure did. The gift shops were full of GREAT merchandise. And of course there was the famous pecan roll. Personally, I like the Peanut Britle the best. I'm now in my 40's with a Wife and child of my own. On our way back from Colorado we had the pleasure and surprise of stopping at a Stuckey's. I'looked at my Daughter and said look honey, Daddy used to go here when he was a little boy. Of course she said, WOW! Daddy, they had "STOOKIES" way back when you were little? YEP! Stuckey's will always be referred to "Stookies" in my book.

My Great Grandmother used to buy the pecan log rolls every year for Christmas- by catalog since we have do not have a Stuckey's in our area.. it was always such a treat and something everyone in the family looked forward to. I haven't had Stuckeys pecan log since Christmas of 1990, she passed away in 1991 and I never knew what the company name was until recently and I am so glad to know so I can start that tradition again and maybe not just for Christmas anymore!!! Please come open a store in Western New York !!!

I have very fond childhood memories of stopping at Stuckey's when we traveled on the interstate. I remember the rack of Adams magic tricks and novelties, such as the fly in the fake ice cube. I also remember my parents getting me a cup of coconut milk at the snack bar. It had actual shreds of coconut in it and it was delicious!
Stuckey's is now most likely being replaced by Cracker Barrel restaurants.
