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.

My first real job was in 1977 at Stuckey’s pumping gas. George McFarland aka Spanky from Our Gang came in and tipped me a silver dollar. I still have it to this day. I think the biggest reason I took the job was for Pecan Log Rolls.

My Grandma Margarete and Grandpa Jim Talley used to manage the Stuckey's in Hattiesburg, MS, back in the 80's. They lived in the attached home and I spent a whole summer there with them. I remember meeting Jerry Clower one day. He came in to eat and change clothes for a stand up show he was on his way to perform. I have so many amazing memories of that place. Every night my grandpa and I would have a buttered pecan ice cream cone. They let me run the register for the gift side of the store. Customers used to get a kick out of the fact I was only 9. One of my favorite things was using the pricing gun to tag all the goods!

Growing up, my parents loved going to Las Vegas. My sister and I were never excited about going but we looked forward to the drive from Orange, Ca to Las Vegas. If we were good, my dad promised to stop at Stuckey’s for a pic an roll and a date shake. If we were really good he would stop a second time. I can still taste those delicious date shakes.

Many road trips in the 50’s & 60’s, most of the Michigan where I grew up, always Stuckey’s along the way. Loved stopping there. My parents buy the best peanut brittle candy plus gifts and car travel games. So many good childhood Stuckey’s memories. I remember the bill boards, the buildings, the inside and the smell of small wood boxes. Thanks for the memories Stuckey’s and miss seeing Stuckeys on road trips. 😃

In the late 60’s and through the 70’s we would drive the NYS Thruway from Syracuse, NY, where my grandparents lived, back to our home in Hudson, OH. A stop at the Stuckey’s in Harborcreek, PA was MANDATORY, mostly to buy a pecan log for each of us kids, as well as to use the facilities and get gas. Those happy memories of family road trips, with sweet treats on the way, will never be forgotten. Thanks, Stuckey’s, for being part of my formative years.

Many road trips in the 60’s & 70’s, from Long Island to Lake Sunapee NH. Road trips from Minnesota to Long Island, both trips, always Stuckey’s along the way. Loved stopping there. Although there were 5 kids in our family & my parents didn’t have much money, I always got some candy or some treat when we stopped. So many good childhood Stuckey’s memories. I remember the bill boards, the buildings, the inside. Thanks for the memories Stuckey’s 😃

First paycheck job was at Stuckey's on I-80 and Seneca rd. Morris Illinois around 1977. Pumped gas, Cleaned windshields, checked oil, ran the register, cleaned after closing. I remember gas went over $1 for first time but pumps only had 2 digits. Had to change all the pumps to half price then put up signs that pumps only showed half the price. Manager lived in the back of the place. He was tuff but fair. Learned a lot.

I traveled to many Stuckey's in my youth and was never able to find a license plate with my name on it because "Travis" was not a popular name during my childhood. B Pennington Commerical Real Estate has stepped up to make me my own Travis license plate. Many memories are wrapped up in Stuckey's candy and gift items. If you still have those small bicycle license plates and you have one for Travis, may we purchase from you?

We took annual trips to Fla in the 60's and 70's. I usually took a good long nap in the heat of the day- no air conditioning! My dad always joked that I smelled the pecans, and my mom couldn't figure out how I spotted the signs with my eyes closed. Best trips ever. I miss seeing Stuckeys on road trips. C'mon back!

Stuckeys to me will always be the guest shop with the perpetual moving glass bird who never seemed to satisfy his thirst for red food-colored water! My upbringing was "frugal" so I never got to see if that magical motion translated all the way to a home after a long car ride.

Of all the road trip memories my brothers and I shared, the most fondest memory was driving through a Stuckey‘s and stopping to get breakfast. My father’s staple was the fried eggs with the toast and jelly, but the best part of it all was sitting down and playing with the little puzzles. All I remember is Stuckey‘s was special to us and I miss seeing those stops on the road.

I remember stopping at Stuckey’s in the 60’s and early 70’s. My Mom loved the pecan rolls. Clean Restrooms was a big deal and my Dad bought gas there. It was always a great stop on a road trip. Hopefully Stuckey’s will partner up with some large convenience store and start offering their candies again. Been a long time since I had one of their pecan logs.
