My Dad drove tractor trailer for more than 25 years up and down the east coast. I remember him bringing home Stuckey's Pecan treats for the whole family. Even though I have never liked nuts of any kind I always remembered Stuckey's along with my Dad. I did get to visit a Stuckey's once when I made a trip with Dad but I remembered the blue / teal peaked roof. My husband and I just made a trip to Virginia - which we do two - three times a year - I had kind of forgotten about Stuckey's but on our way back all of a sudden I thought about that trip I made with Dad. It wasn't until we pulled back into NY State that I could come up with the Stuckey's name. Needless to say, now that I am home I had to look up Stuckey's on the Internet to see if you were still around. You can't imagine how pleased I was to find you!
Thank-You so much for the memories...it took me back to when I was a Kid and Dad came home with the Stuckey's.

There was a little Stuckey's triva on cable TV's Food Channel not so long ago. Seems that when Mr. Stuckey decided to expand out from Georgia, he and Ethel started driving north and every time Ethel had to pee, he'd stop and make a note to scarf up some real estate and build another Stuckey's at that spot. She must have had a tiny bladder, cause I remember quite a few stores between Virginia and Georgia back in the day.

My family travelled I-75 extensively throughout the 70's and 80's. We used to joke we had "peed" in every Stuckey's on I-75. We were (and still are) addicted to the Pecan Divinity. It's still the best after all these years. I now take my children to Stuckey's every chance I get. It's a TRADITION!!!

I grew up in NJ, my family went on vacations to Fla when I was a kid, we always stopped at Stuckeys & I would beg my dad to buy me a pecan milkshake. I've lived in So Fla since '77 & a few years ago I was driving to Tenn with friends when I noticed a Stuckeys sign & yelled out we have to stop I haven't been to one since I was a kid. We parked, I ran inside, asked the girl if she'd make me a pecan shake & was shocked when she asked what I was talking about.I said how can you work at Stuckeys & not know about the famous pecan shakes. She said they have shakes but not pecan so I told her I had pecans in the car, if I gave them to her could she make me one & she said yes so I ran outside & got the pecans. I was disappointed when I tasted it & found out it was actually a McDonalds shake & tasted nothing like the old Stuckeys shakes. So I ended up buying some Pecan Logs. My question is why did Stuckeys stop making the delicious pecan shakes?

I really loved stopping at Stuckey's for a thick milk shake on our roadtrips. We used to go camping a lot and on the way to and from the campground we always stopped at Stuckey's, this was in the early 1960's. Thank You for a the great years.
