I remember as a kid back in the 50s traveling from Florida to northern Kentucky to see my grandparents back before the major interstates were completed. One of the most anticipated events for me while traveling was spotting the Stuckeys signs on the road. I knew even at a young age that we were good for two or three stops at a Stuckeys each way of our trip and that each stop would include the Stuckeys Pecan Log and Pecan Divinity. A taste you never forget. Today at the age of 56 I still remember the pleasure of that first bite and all the fun mom, dad and I had at those stops every time I see a Stuckeys sign or come across a website like this one. Thanks for the memories Stuckeys.

I went to visit family as a child twice throughout the 1960's. The road trip began in California and ended in West Virginia. The best part of those trips and the best memories I have is STUCKEY'S!! It gave my brother and something to do in the car besides SLUGBUG. My favorite souvenir would have to the lucite enclosed "porcupine Eggs" I would take it to school for show and tell. I'm not sure at what age it that I realized they weren't "porcupine Eggs" they were sticker burrs from a weed. I still have them I also still have an Indian Doll. Thanks for such great memories.

I remember the trips that myself, mom and step dad would take from Texas to Alabama and later ,to Disney World when I was a young boy. No Interstate road trip was without our stops at Stuckeys. We'd get those awesome burgers, pecan logs, and other stuff you'd find at stucky's. My favorite things were the little indian drums with the rubber heads, and of course, the plastic fanny pinchers with the snake head on top and the squeeze handle on the bottom. My step dad had a specific use for the fanny pincher. On mornings when I would'nt get out of bed on time, he would put that thing to use, and it worked. I have not had a chance to take a vacation in over a decade, but when I do, I'll be stopping at Stuckey's. It's a part of my childhood.

I remember on our trips to Florida stopping at a Stuckey's Store to look at all the souvenirs and candy. My Mom said she thought the Pecan Log used to be made with a fudge center, not white creamy center. Is she wrong? I would appreciate any info. Thanks. Sandra
