Once a month in the 1970's we would visit my Aunt & Uncle in North Carolina. Leaving our home in Virginia it was a long trip in the back seat with only my comic books & soda pop. But as soon as we saw the Stuckeys sign it was time to get snacks. Usually I got the famous pecan log. Best memories ever.

We traveled from Big Spring TX to Abilene,TX when I was a kid growing up in the Rockies and always stopped at Stuckeys in Colorado City on our way. We usually came out with pecan log rolls, candy and souvenirs each time we went in the store. I also vividly remember the fun we had playing on the kids playground and the larger-than-life animals in front of the store. Good times! Thank you Stephanie Stuckey for all you are doing to keep this going!

I have not seen a Stuckey's store in a long time. I stopped by a local convenience store and saw a display of Stuckey's pecan rolls. I almost fell over. When I was young, we always stopped at the Stuckey's location somewhere between Jackson and Nashville, TN when going on a vacation. That store has since closed, but the memories were always there. Seeing the pecan logs at the convenience store brought back a flood of memories. Good memories. I bought 2 of the pecan rolls and will buy more the next time I go there. If there are any left. This prompted me to tell my Mother about it, and we talked about the times we were in Stuckey's buying the treats and what our favorites were. It also prompted me to check out the website and share my experience with Stuckey's. I am so happy to see you still around. Hope to run across a store sometime. Love the Praline also!

Driving through the deep South, a bag of cashews is the perfect driving companion. The real challenge is keeping one bag unopened until getting home...an almost impossible task! Having lived in Mississippi for three years, I was spoiled with these great products.

Made a Stuckeys hall at Russell Oil Co. gas station in Johnson City Illinois while traveling back to Wisconsin this week. Enjoying my treats. Thank you Stuckeys

On our vacations in the '50s and '60s we always stopped at the first Stuckey's we saw. My Mom always bought her favorite for the family to snack on while traveling - the Pecan Log Roll. Fond memories. Great to see a resurgence.

My husband & I both have fond memories of stopping at Stuckey's on family road trips as children. We both loved the pecan log rolls and all the souvenirs! What a nice surprise that his recent job has him staying in Wren's GA. Visited the gift shop here in Wrens to reminisce and enjoy our 1st pecan log roads in more than 54 years. They tasted exactly as we remembered!! YUMMY!

I remember (slightly, lol!) a robot-looking machine that contained a plethora of "toys" to buy. My always "go-to" was the smoking monkey. Also remember the little square plastic boxes at the counter with the Mexican jumping beans clicking away.

As I was drinking my morning coffee, I happened to see an article pop-up about Stuckey’s. As soon as I saw that familiar red, cursive logo, my head was instantly flooded with hundreds of childhood memories. I grew up in Chicago, and every other year my family would take a road trip to see my grandparents in Daytona Beach Florida. This is back in the late seventies, early eighties, so taking a road trip with a family of four was a very different experience than it is today. Our entertainment was coloring books, action figures, mindlessly staring out the window, fighting with my sister every half hour, and most of all, a stop or two at Stuckey’s! As soon as I would see the familiar Stuckey’s sign, I would shout out – “Stuckey’s Five millllllleeeessss!” I can assure you no one in the car appreciated my announcements, but it did work because my dad would always pull off and let us get out for a while. Another important piece of information is that I was always given $10 by my parents for my vacation. This was to spend in any way that I wanted. We often went to Disney World, so my mother would tell me “Here’s $10 for your spend at Disney with Mickey.” I can tell you that my $10 was never made to past Georgia. As soon as we stopped at the first Stuckey’s, I would run into the store like a bride furiously looking for the perfect wedding dress at a sample sale. I blew through hat 10 bucks in 5 minutes at Stuckey’s, and I had no regret whatsoever. I am so grateful that an America icon like Stuckey’s is still going. We all have favorite brands from our childhood that are no longer around. And as they go away, a little piece of us feels like we’ve lost something from our childhood. Thank you for keeping Stuckey’s going and growing! I wish you nothing but the very best, and I will forever be a Stuckey’s brand ambassador. Most Sincerely, Jon

My husband and I managed the Stuckeys in Franklin Tn in the late 70’s. We had 3 children and lived in the back of the store. We ran a tight ship and loved employing local kids. They were all awesome. Our store was on I-65 just south of Nashville. Happy memories there while raising our family. Our district manager was Doyle Freeman. Such a fair and honest man.

As a kid in the 1980s my family traveled alot to visit family around the country. Stopping at a Stuckey's was absolutely necessary. We would stop at every Stuckeys on the way. My mom never missed a Stuckeys . She knew that if she did her kids would start complaining and crying. Stuckeys got us through alot of boring car rides. Pecan logs and activity books were always my choice.

My mom and I used to travel to see her siblings a couple times per year. I remember stopping at Stuckey's and mom always grabbed a pecan roll & some divinity. I loved to check out all the cool gifts. I remember once we came across a restaurant inside that wasn't a dairy queen - just a little diner - probably somewhere in Missouri or Arkansas. In the 90s I remember Lincoln Alabama had a Stuckey's with a dairy queen in it. I stopped at least once per week on my way to or from work. I made sure to pick up my mom's favorite snacks & some Horehound candy.

Glad to see Stuckey's more present in the Georgia area along the 75. This goes back to my childhood and road trips up to Canada to visit relatives. They all wanted the pecan logs rolls, who didn't. The Blue roof off the highway and you knew you had arrived. With nostalgia on a come back, I think Stucky's should re-open the classic A Frame building with Blue roof and all. At least one. And a little more presence down here in Florida would be ideal.

Always loved Stuckey's. The very best memories of my childhood is being on vacation with my parents and sisters and stopping by a Stuckey's. I loved the pecan roll as did my momma. We would always visit each time we went to my Aunt's house in Ohio or my grandparents house in Missouri. Such wonderful memories. Thank you Stuckey's.

We would go on a family camping trip every year, our route went through the corner of Wyoming, there was a Stucky's along I15 and we would stop at everytime. We would talk about the treats all year. I remember my grandfather always got lots of peanut brittle for his personal stash.

Growing up in Johnson City, TN, my family would make the “long” trip (about an hour!) to Abingdon, VA nearly every week to visit my grandparents. When I’d see the iconic turquoise roof of Stuckey’s off I-81, I knew that we were there! Of course pecan log rolls were always a wonderful treat, and my mom always loved the pecan divinity… thanks for the priceless memories now that I’m a grandparent myself!

We traveled from California to Texas quite often and always stopped at Stuckeys. The sight of the A frame roof was always welcoming. My favorites were the pimento cheese sandwiches and homemade chocolate shakes. I would wander through the store looking at all of the candy and souvenirs. It was always the best stop on the trip!

As a kid, I wasn't familiar with Stuckey's. That was until indie comic artist, and later game designer and Pixar director, Steve Purcell immortalized it in his series, "Sam & Max." As the comics and games focus on travel across the US, Stuckey's (or Snuckey's as it was parodied) was a big center point of showing Americana and road-trip culture. In an interview, Purcell mentioned that he was a fan of Stuckey's as a kid, and knew he wanted to feature them. Years later, when my own family went on a trip, I was thrilled when we came across a Stuckey's, and demanded we stop. Running inside, I excitedly yelled at my younger brother, "look, they have the Pecan treats just like the ones that Sam and Max buy for the mole man!!!" So glad Stuckey's are still around and flourishing! Oh, and I really want a Floaty Pen, like the concept you showed last year: https://stuckeys.com/the-floaty-pen-remembering-an-iconic-souvenir/

I saw the report by Harry Smith of NBC News. Brought back memories of my late Mom talking about stopping at Stuckey's in the 1950's.

When I was a kid, we would go on vacation once a year. Every year, we would stop at a Stuckey's and buy a souvenir. Mom would always buy a paddle with the cute sayings on them because she would wear them out on our behinds the rest of the year.
