Stuckey's was a place both my sister & I could not wait to stop at as kids in the backseat of the car when my parents would travel from Spokane, Wa. To Tucson , AZ. to visit my Grandparents. Back in the 70s you would find Stuckey’s off the main Highway s or close to truck stops. The white chocolate covered pretzels was the Family favorite so much so that I recall sometimes after stopping my Dad would stop to get a box of them and about 30 minutes later we’d hear ,” who the hell are all the dam pretzels “?? and of course my sister & I would look at each other utt ohh !! Lol Dad eventually got smarter and then started buying 2 boxes 📦 of the fantastic mouth watering white chocolate covered pretzels… So - so good!!! 😊. I sure Miss Stuckey’s and hope they make a big comeback .. The best ever👍
I've regrettably only been to Stuckey's once (so far) and that visit was unplanned. In the summer of 1969 our family left our-then home of St. Paul, Minn. en route to visiting relatives in New England. We left early in the morning headed east on I-94. Just over the Wisconsin line our car's radiator began to act funny, so we stopped at the nearest gas station, which just happened to be a Stuckey's in Baldwin WI. We were there about half an hour, and I don't recall us sampling any pecan rolls or anything like that. But it was long enough to get a feel for the place, and I've always wanted to make a return visit. I'm now in Springfield IL, which, long before I moved here, had a Stuckey's just south of town on I-55 (and the old route 66). I hope they come back. Kudos to Stephanie for her tireless efforts to revive the family business and her appreciation of this part of Americana.
I was born and raised in a small farming community in central Kansas. In 1959 we traveled to California to visit my Aunt. During our drive, we frequently saw Stuckey's along the roadside and Dad stopped for gas and treats as often as possible. I will never forget this trip and Stuckey's made the long trip extra special. To this day, I still look forward to a pecan log roll and pecan turtles. (Dad's favorites). Every time I have these wonderful sweets, I remember that road trip and the great vacation we all had! Thanks Stuckey's and thanks for coming back. You make me look forward to more great road trips...
As a child in the '60s, my family would take road vacations, 2 weeks a year, across the country. In those days, if memory serves, most Stuckeys were about a gas tank apart. As we share the name, our dad made a point of stopping at every Stuckeys we saw for cold drinks and treats. We thought this was marvelous. As I recall, you used to get a pecan log or divinity with a fillup. These were rationed by our mom as we headed down the road towards the next Stuckeys. These were wonderful times.
Back in the 60's, highway 66 was our path to fun on vacations. We map out all the Stuckeys along the way. We had a 65 Mercury Monterey 4 door. Stuckeys pecan pralines were the bomb!
Always bought some at the checkout cashiers. Enough Squirt and pralines to carry us to the next Stuckey's!
Thanks for all the great memories...
As a Christmas gift from my wife's brother and his wife, we received the tin of Glazed Pecans as well as two additional boxes of treats. These are the highest quality, best tasting sweet treats I have ever experienced. Over many years (decades) I have received and sent similar gift packs from other premium suppliers but none of them can compare to Stuckey's overall quality including the packaging that ensures the freshness of each item. Rest assured I will be sending out Stuckey's Holiday gift boxes next year. Also, proud to support a GA company that uses GA grown products.
Every summer we would head out west in our truck camper to Colorado and the highlight of our drives was stopping at Stuckey’s. You used to sell flavored candy sticks and it was always a challenge for me to choose just 2 flavors from your vast assortment, but green apple was always one of my two. I am adopted and when I met my bio-family, I discovered we shared our love for Stuckey’s in common, as they’d taken the same westward treks to Colorado. This prompted me to send my bio-brother one of your tin mugs last Christmas with the fun retro art. Thank you, Stuckey’s, for reviving such a beloved and treasured brand!
Many fond memories of stopping at Stuckey's throughout the South on car trips from Northern Ohio to Florida back in the 1970s!
Growing up in a family where our dad worked and retired from Texaco after 35 years he insisted our family was supported by Texaco and the road trips included gas stops for fuel and Texaco and Stuckey’s had a great long term relationship that we were exposed to early on. In the 1970’s we were transferred throughout the south and the Stuckey’s in Hope Hull Alabama was the half way gas stop between Mobile Al and Atlanta Ga. The memories after 50 years still included the Pecan Log.
My father and mother started as store managers in Houston Texas when I was in 8th grade. My dad was promoted to regional manager and we moved back north. Stuckey's was our life for the next 20 years. Fond memories
It was a different world when my grandparents would take my sister, only girl cousin & I to the reservation in North Carolina from Mableton, GA. We’d have so many quilts & pillows piled up in the back of Grandaddy’s 1970 Chevy truck with the camper top & roll out windows. Our favorite part of the trip was going to Stuckey’s because we would get $5 each to spend. Hey, it was like 1978 so it was a big deal 🤭 I wish I still had one of the dozens of Native American plastic dolls I bought on those trips.
At one point Stuckey’s was owned by Pet Inc., where my grandpa worked. When we were on road trips we visited every single Stuckey’s on our trail. Grandpa would announce to the passengers “here comes Stuckey’s!” and we’d pull off to enjoy the fare. Thank you for revitalizing your brand!
I grew up visiting Stuckey's as a kid. My Mom would stop all the time as we traveled each summer. It was one of the highlights of our vacation. The last time I was at one my children were young and we were traveling with my husband who was a truck driver. I had him to stop I wanted to show my kids what a Stucke';s was like and what I remember as a child. It was so much fun I miss that now.
Back as far as I can Remember, once a year our family would travel from Virginia to Texas to see our relatives, and along the way we would stop at several Stuckey's during the summer. Fueled the Car, and Fueled our stomach's on the delicious treats.
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.
