Ah, my lovely Aunt Mary! She, like my mother, was born in the 1920's but unlike mother, she married my mother's brother who, during WWII was in the Army Air Corp. When they married, they traveled over the world and had three children, one of them my favorite cousin Linda. When my sons and Linda's children were small and we were going to Texas to see them, (we lived in Georgia) I talked to Aunt Mary about what she might want from my area of the country and she had two requests. One, because they couldn't get them in Texas, was Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Now, this was in early 1980,81. But more than that, she wanted the Stuckeys cinnamon pecans in the tin can. She and I both loved them, so I made sure we stopped at Stuckey's and got oh, a half a dozen cans of the pecans, a few log rolls and other delishishnish!! (that's what we called it). We arrived around 2300 hrs, hungry, tired, with two tired little boys. Once everyone was settled and bedded down, , Aunt Mary and I sat back, put our feet up and popped open the pecans - a can for me, a can for her, and the other cans well hidden. It's something she asked for on each trip we took to Texas, and when she and her two sisters in law came to see my mother and all of us in Georgia some 15 years later, she made absolutely sure that she secretly gave me at least two cans of the pecans. Oh, to this day, to me - and to my Aunt Mary who is now in heaven with my uncle, Aunt Mary and I agreed that those pecans were exactly a lovely taste of Heaven. Thank you, Stuckey's, for making such "delishishnish!!" I'll never forget the love they brought as I learned to love Aunt Mary as my friend while we nibbled (or gobbled) on those fantastic pecans!

As a young Ladd in early seventies was a treat for a weekend road trip to Roanoke Virginia and shopping at Stuckeys. The nut logs were so good. We’d load up in the station wagon singing to the radio. Spending hours at Lakeside amusement park. Returning home in Bluefield West Virginia we stop again for treats and beverages. Always filling that fuel tank each way. Wow ... Beach Boy music... Carpenters ... sweet treats to stay awake.. Thank you for those days...🙏😇

Family road trips always had a stop at a Stuckey...well unless we were being bad. Loved all the candy!

When I was a kid we drove everywhere. We almost always stopped at Stuckey’s. It’s a forever memory. Couldn’t wait to hit the gift shop! Great to see you on the comeback!!

Loved all the items! Great vibes, left with a summer dress, cowgirl hat, sunglasses and a t-shirt!

My greatest memory of Stuckey‘s, was when we stopped for our morning breakfast when we drove down south to Florida for vacation every year,. Who can forget the delicious two eggs, toast and jelly for $.99 breakfast!, They were some of my favorite stops for breakfast, I could not wait to get our famous vacation breakfast at Stuckey‘s every year! I used to love going around the gift shop and getting the famous candies and pecan rolls. These were some one of my greatest memories as a child.

Bought a bag of Stuckey's toasted, honey roasted pecans from Ingles in Clayton, Georgia yesterday. They are very tasty as expected. Good to see Stuckey's products are being distributed widely.

My parents managed the Stuckey’s in Eagle, Michigan when I was a child! It was one of the best times of my life. The store provided a much needed community gathering area for the small village. From the town getting together to have breakfast to the teens having a place to gather for lunch! It provided jobs for the locals and many friends now have great memories of Stuckey’s being their first job. Thank you for a great memories!

My sister went to college in Columbia, Mo. My mom and I used to fly in/out of KC and rent a car to go visit. Growing up on the beach in CA, this was a different and fun experience for me. We would have to wake up at the crack of dawn ( really, the middle of the night) to drive to KC to catch our plane back to CA. Stuckeys on I 70 was always a reliable stop For an early morning hamburger and fries. So many yrs ago ( I took my kids back to that Stuckeys when we were passing through one time), but my mom ( now well into her 80’s) and I still get the biggest laugh at our Stuckeys adventures. It’s an Icon to a lot of people. 💕

Whenever we stopped at Stuckey’s, my parents or grandparents would buy Mexican jumping beans for me and my siblings! We loved it!!

Every Sunday, my dad and I would drive to Stuckeys at the Interstate 40, exit 126. It was the nearest place to buy a Sunday newspaper. I couldn't wait to check out the S.S. Adams spinning rack to see if they had something new! I have been a professional magician and comedian for over 30 years, and I may have purchased my first magic trick from that rack.

I remember Stuckeys as a kid going from Boston to Florida in the early 1960s to the 1970s traveling down US 301 always stopped at Stuckeys so much fun in my youth

I remember like it was yesterday. But, it was 57 years ago. That was the day I lost my virginity to Mearle in the mens room at a Stucky’s. I’ll never forget, and will always have fond memories of your stores

I grew up in the 50's visiting my grandparents that lived on 6th avenue in Eastman. My grandparents knew the Stuckeys since they lived across the street. Due to this we would visit the candy plant and eat all the candy we could hold. I will always remember a barrel of salted peanuts at the exit to the plant. Hope the company will return to it glory days.

This memory goes back to the days in the 1970s and 1980s. I went on many vacations in the south. The greatest part of my memories is not what we did on vacation, but those Stuckey's found throughout the South. It was the biggest treat ever to roll off the highway to stop at Stuckey's and get one of the most delicious hotdogs ever. It seemed you left the real world of heavy traffic and stiffness from being cramped up in a vehicle. You were suddenly in the perfect world with all the treats and great food. They knew exactly what to do to make just the perfect magic stopping off place. I have forgotten the vacation destinations, but will never forget the feel of entering a Stuckey's on a road trip.

Growing up in the 60's in Ohio, my family took a 2-week summer road trip every year, seeing the Stuckey signs along the freeways was a treat and knew that I could possibly talk my dad into stopping at one or two along the way. It was always a great place to stretch out legs, take a restroom break and load up on snacks for the car. My favorite memory was how my dad would try to get me to look in the other direction if he saw a Stuckey sign along the road, thinking it would distract me from begging to stop once again. Of course, it never worked. :-)

We drove regularly from Birmingham down to Sarasota back in the late 60's and 70's in a classic station wagon... Griswold style. Drove my dad crazy becuase I wanted to stop at every Stuckey's we passed. So glad to see Stephanie in the saddle and bringing back the brand. Plan to a majority of my Christmas shopping right here on this website !

I grew up in the Chicago suburbs but in the 70’s moved to Athens, AL and travelled back and forth for holidays. My sisters and I were in the formative years of learning English rules therefore we weren’t sure if it was pronounced Stukey’s or Stuckeys so every time we saw one of your iconic signs looming over the interstate, we would yell “Stukey Stuckeys!” And have to stop. Always felt like a safe place to take a break, find a treat and look at all of the cool regional trinkets and memorabilia for sale. Those were awesome days.

When I was young my parents would take a trip somewhere and we would stop at Stuckeys. I would run in and head to the grab bags, I would chose one and grab a pecan,roll and ask my Dad, please can,I have this? And usually yes, score! And, I loved the look and smell of the cedar boxes in store too. Always great memories!

My grandparents lived straight east on I-70 in Missouri. Stuckey’s was always the family favorite stop. I fell in love with the log roll and peanut brittle. I remember having a rubber alligator that I kept for years. Later in my life when I worked in sales I was so disappointed that the wonderful confection stores with the turquoise roof had closed. Then I see this beautiful young lady on TikTok. The granddaughter of the original owner reviving the family business. Good for you!!! I ordered a box of pecan logs to give to my employees. They are too young to know of the decadent pecan logs. They will soon become the fan that I am. Congratulations on the revival. Keep up the good work.
