I ordered some of all the oldies we ate as children so I could share with my Grandchildren. It was fun and they loved it. Thanks for the opportunity to share old memories.

I lived across the road from the candy plant where my daddy worked when I was little. I grew up eating Stuckey candy and pulled my teeth on the caramel kind. Just visited Eastman last weekend and took pictures of the old plant and offices. It is so sad to visit and see what a negative impact the company's leaving had on this community.

Traveled many times from Pennsylvania to Florida and back with my family on vacations from the early 60s to mid 70s. Many times stopping at a Stuckey's for a restroom break, gas and of course purchases of pecan log rolls. Just this last December while moving my daughter back home from Florida to Pennsylvania, I asked her if she had seen any Stuckey's in her travels in the south by car since I had long forgone car travel in favor of traveling by plane. This started a search on our cell phones to find a Stuckey's on our route and sure enough we found one. Stopping and getting a pecan log roll and biting in to that delicious confection instantly transported me back to my youth. Thank you Stuckey's for still being there.

I was born in 1965 and our family has driven across the USA more than a few times - with many trips in the so-called Mid Atlantic states. Stuckey's was often a nice place to stop for fuel, a potty break and a chance to get some snacks. Times are different nowadays, but we still have those great memories!

Hello, I feel so blessed to have discovered the authenticity on Stuckey's Shops. Eventhough, the firm experienced acquirement before I was born it propelled an eager jolt-- with both growth and salesmanship in Eudora Arkansas for long lengthed juicy pecans. Thus I was born in New York City, but moved to Eudora and resided with my grandparents. I reflect back on the numerous times which my cousins would climb up on the Pecan trees to shake the limbs, so that the pecans could fall onto the ground. It was at that time I could manage to collect these great tasting blessed nuts. In retrospect, and shifting to Stuckey's shops I thank you for teaching me how to spell the world renown last name Stuckey. Thank you for reviving your history and sharing. God Bless.

Oh how this makes me smile. Having been born in 1954....I have so many memories of every summer, traveling from west Texas to far northeast Texas (Odessa to Clarksville) about 500miles....all yr my brother & I saved money, collected cents off coupons and sold them to a local store called Cabels and got face value for them. And most of it was to buy stuff at several Stuckeys stores along the way.....I always bought those colorful coconut bonbons. I so wish Stuckeys would come back to this great state. We have lots of Buc-ees stores, though none near west Texas. But Stuckeys will always always be the best One-stop Road Trip Store.

I, along with a friend, remember stopping at Stuckey’s on the way to Las Vegas from Los Angeles in the 1970s. I was in my 20’s. I liked getting the pecan logs. I remember on one of our trips to Vegas as we were exiting the freeway to make a stop at Stuckey’s, there was a vehicle of musicians stranded at the exit. We gave them a ride to Stuckey’s so that they could get help. They were playing in Vegas that weekend. I miss Stuckey’s.

Grew up in Miami. Whether traveling to the mountains or heading out west, we always begged dad to stop at Stuckeys. Good memories. My brother just went to TN and saw one of the stores, he had to share the pic with us. Definitely made our day! I wanted to share the picture/conversation, but I can't 🙁

My Father was a Eastman native himself, so I spent my summer vacations traveling from St Louis to Chester, Milledgeville, and Reidsville to visit family. It was always a good memory to visit a Stuckey’s along the way and back. My Father told me he was a cousin to the Stuckey family, I think it was an excuse to stop at a Stuckey’s. It was later on I found out, that he was right. Lol. Distant cousin. Anyway, glad to see the name being carried on with the hopes of creating more memories for travelers.

I cannot say enough good things about Stuckey's! I ordered some goodies and souvenirs as well. The peanut logs I received were the best and freshest I have ever had, so delicious, the perfect combination of sweet, salty, creamy.... just nuts! 🙂 I also snagged a t-shirt.. so soft and comfy and the size was perfect, the XL was what it should be. I also received a ball cap that was MUCH higher quality than I was expecting, and it arrived in perfect condition... normally ordering a ball cap elsewhere, you almost expect it to arrive crushed but not from Stuckey's... it was perfect. The customer service impeccable! A big THANK YOU to Stephanie Stuckey and her team, you have a loyal customer and friend in me. You Rock!

Stuckey’s played such a big part in my childhood. We traveled extensively in the summer. Each new state meant a stop at a Stuckey’s for a state bell and state pennant. I bought the 36” wood Stuckey’s sign to hang in my house. I love it! It makes me smile every time I walk by.

I am SO GLAD to find Stuckey’s has a website! Of course, like a lot of the commentators here, I visited Stuckey’s as a kid. Each year, my folks would drive South to visit relatives, and my brother and I would ask to visit every Stuckey’s we saw along the way! The billboards were like Svengali to us! My mother and I loved the pecan rolls; we kids loved the souvenirs and toys! So much fun! On my honeymoon years later, we were driving on Route 10 across Ala., LA.and Fla. In a terrible storm. It was so dark and rainy we couldn’t see where we were going, but, up ahead, we saw the bright sign for a Stuckey’s! We stopped there to wait out the storm, and pick up some much needed snacks and a pecan roll for my mother for when we came home! I love Stuckey’s!

Back in the '50s & early '60s, our grandparents & parents used to take us on vacation south out of Dayton, OH on old US 25 heading for the Smokies. We ALWAYS stopped at Stuckey's whenever we could. Gpa & Gma loved the log rolls; my sister and I loved the gift shop trinkets. Years later, while living and working in northern Louisiana as a claims adjustor, there was one on I-20 between Minden & Ruston, LA where I made it a point to stop for coffee and an inexpensive breakfast. Wish we had one here in our area now-I'd be there!

I remember having car trouble when I was in the service, and stopping at a Stuckey's. I went inside and bought a log roll and always wanted to go back as often as I could. The Stuckeys in California closed down, so I'm so happy I can order online during the holidays and for my 93 year old aunt. I wish we had a Stuckeys in Phoenix, but online is better than nothing.

I am 52 yrs old now, and every once in a while, my mind flashes back to childhood memories. One of the best memories I have is back in the 1970's. Every year, my parents, and I, would drive down to Florida for a vacation. I remember seeing, and stopping, at very many Stuckey's restaurants. I remember the awesome breakfasts. My father was hooked on your pecan rolls, and would by them by the dozens. I remember him eating them, with a cold beer, while sitting out on a balcony, overlooking the ocean. My father has been passed away for many now, but it's memories like this that keep him alive within me. Thank you Stuckey's for helping me keep this memory alive.

Ordered boxes of the large pecan rolls for Christmas, to share with family and friends. Fast delivery, loved by all. The old timers expressed how sorry they were to see the Stuckey stores vanish from the N.C. highways. They brought back good memories for many. So now I know what to buy for Christmas gifts in the years to come. Thank you.

When I was little we would go on vacation and always stop coming and going. We always got spice pecans, a box of 3 different divinties. My brother and I got just plain candy. We also got pecan logs and lots of other things. The only regret I had growing up was that we didn't go on vacations anymore to be able to come visit your stores. We would go to California and was unhappy you weren't out that far. This was in the 50's and 60's. I'm close to 70 now and still miss stopping at your stores.

The last time I had the privilege of visiting a Stuckey's was while visiting my boyfriend who was stationed at Cannon AFB in Clovis NM in 1988. I stopped almost every time I visited. After we were married in 1988 and both living in Clovis, the Stuckey's closed. I still.have the fondest memories of buying my own local gifts for family & friends and taking family & friends who visited on their way to or from Lubbock or Amarillo to catch flights home. When it closed a short while later, it was used as something else, I can't recall. When I drive by the old location while driving through Clovis, there is a tiny pang in my heart for the "good old days".

My parents did training in Baker California and got their first store in Williams AZ and then we were off to Yuma AZ. They worked so hard and long hours but they liked it. My brother and sisters also worked in Stuckeys. My little brother and I were too young to help out. It was a time in my life that I will always remember. I have been on the prowl for the picture I know we have with my Mom in uniform and I believe my brother too.

Every summer we drove from Denver to McAlester, OK to visit my grandparents. Hours and hours in a compact car with 4 people is not fun especially with no a/c. I can remember coming over a hill and seeing that blue roof. We always begged to stop and sometimes my dad would be gracious enough to do so. I say gracious because it was usually about 17 hours to drive and the only stops were for gas and bathrooms. We packed food. Anyway, I've always remembered seeing the pralines and jumping beans. FINALLY one year my mom bought me the jumping beans. My life was complete.

Not your usual Stuckey's story. As a young boy my father would take is kids every summer to Grandma's in Oklahoma City from San Antonio. My father was the type of driver that was all about minimum stops, definite 'get-thereitis'. But I always remember the Stuckey's signs. It was a comfort, of a sort, to see the land mark signs. A way us kids could track our progress up IH 35. I always imagined Stuckey's as some kind of mythological oasis if only dad would decide to stop in! HaHa. It's heartening to know there are still Stuckey's store around. Maybe one day, when I'm a grandpa, i can take a road trip and actually stop in with the grandkids and tell them about the magical stop that had pecan logs! Like I said not your usual Stuckey's story...

My first job was at Stuckey's in Centerville, Indiana along I-70. I was 14 years old and I worked there for almost 4 years. I loved it and it taught me a lot of responsibility. To this day I can count back change without having to put the amount in the register for it to tell me what the change should be. Stuckey's has gone through many changes, but it is still located in Centerville along I-70.

Years of traveling in a camper with our 3 kids, during the 60's, we would try to pass by a Stuckey's but no way. Everyone wanted some kind of candy. My husband and I preferred the best Pecan Log ever. The kids would get their favorite. Off we would go until another Stuckey's appeared. Living in Charleston, SC they are not easy to find, but what a great online service. Just sent my son in MT a big box of Pecan Logs.

"I grew up in Trenton, GA and every summer we'd travel and Stuckeys was always a high point to our trips. I am retired USAF now and live in Colorado and no Stuckeys here. We travel south about once a year and still love Stuckeys!!"

Stuckeys was always a part of or family trips. From about 1960 till all the Stuckeys in the southwest were gone, we always got excited to see that familiar blue roof and bright sign that meant as much as (and sometimes more than) the destination. How sad it was to see the last one vanish into our memories, turned into a mexican restaurant or just fall into disrepair like a ghost town saloon. Please bring at least one store back to the southwest...maybe along the I-15?

In 1969 and again in 1973 -2 parents , 1 dog , and 6 kids left long island and drove across America without a/c or video games - we visited all of the 48 lower states over those 2 trips .Stuckeys was a beacon of light during those long drives. I think we stopped at everyone we passed..So many good memories of simpler times.

I grew up in NJ, while my grandparents lived in OR. We spent many summers on the road, driving to visit them. Stuckey's was our favorite pitstop.

I remember Cinnamon-Sugar pecans. Looks like you don't have them anymore. Sad. Maybe I was the very few who loved those. <3 It's been about 40 years but I can still remember them! My parents ALWAYS got the pecan log, but it was not my favorite tho. Anyway, I am glad to know y'all are still around. Hope the new generation of kids still love to stop there! 🙂

I remember rooming with Robert one summer at the Citadel Summer Camp for boys. I hated the camp, but loved the Pecan Logs! Best wishes!

Delicious Divinity. I remember the store in Garden Valley Texas where I lived in the 80's, became a Loves during the 80's - great 99 cent breakfast - eggs were always done exactly the way we wanted. It is so sad, we need a place like Stuckeys again. I love the architecture of the store too!

"Life is full of experiences. However seeing a stuckeys T shirt on a guy in NYC I was overwhelmed with happy memories. I had delightful flashbacks of traveling with my grandparents, stopping at Stuckeys, pecan logs, the beautiful country side and the 82 Worlds Fair. I'm so thrilled to see you're still around. Your company is truly an American Treasure."
