Guestbook

Share your favorite Stuckey’s memory! Our guestbook is your opportunity to share those experiences with others.

Just about everybody has a Stuckey‘s story, recalling a time when they took road trips in the family station wagon and found “highway happiness” at one of our stores.

We would love to hear your most fond memories from yesterday or today, and we know others would love to share in your experiences as well. Please take a moment or two and post your comments in our guestbook.

"Through the 60's and 70's we always loved stopping at the Stuckey's in Waters, Michigan on the car drive from Bay City to Mullett Lake. Many fond memories! We were so sorry to see it go years ago."

So many years driving hundreds of miles to my grandparents' places, and so many stops at our favorite Stuckeys too! My dad used to stop there, and he hated to stop at all because he liked to drive straight through for 18 hours. He once made us all use soda bottles to pee in, but that's another story for another time (the bottles were glass back then with such a tiny opening!). He used to stop there and we'd get everyone fed for something like 15 bucks. We always picked up a Pecan Log because grandma loved them so much.... Read more

He used to stop there and we'd get everyone fed for something like 15 bucks. We always picked up a Pecan Log because grandma loved them so much. It was the first thing she would ask us when we showed up - usually in the middle of the night because we rarely stopped for anything. She would ask: "where's my Stuckey's nut log?" And it was always me who would hand it to her. I was always so sleepy. After dad went to bed and my sister and I unpacked the car, we would stay up til morning savoring Stuckey's nuts until we couldn't stay awake anymore. I miss Stuckey's very much as I rarely see them on the highway anymore. I'm so glad I found the online store so I can buy Pecan Logs in bulk. I never get tired of those Stuckey's Logs.... Collapse

We used to have them on I 15 in California in the 60's and 70's. Then they closed them all down and left the state. Loved their Pecan Logs!!!

We traveled a lot when I was a kid in the 1950s between Michigan and Tennessee. I don't know where the Stuckey's was located that I remember, but they had a huge glass wall on the inside of the building and there behind the glass was the most interesting bee hive I had ever seen!

I remember every time we went on a trip we stopped at a stuckeys. I was at home in the 60's and I am looking for some of that luscious candy now! We had a store about half hour away but they closed years ago. Keep the web site open!

Somewhere in the early 80's my friend Trevor's mother would up managing a Stucky's outside of Van Horn Tx. One summer i went out there to work for them. What wonderful memories I have of all the people that were on the road traveling and the local regulars that would come by for a shake and a bugger. Even though we were not in town, it did not feel like we were. Everyone stopped by with a smile on their face. It was my first work experience away from home and such great fun.

I still remember meeting this family from St Ingbert Germany. The thing about that is that is the same small town my grandmother is from. What a small world it is, even before the internet was around. I've look on google earth for that great little store in the middle of nowhere. But just can't find it. In my mind, it's still out there, somewhere and always will be. Hey Trevor hows radar. :) Hope life has been good to you.... Collapse

"Our family used to take yearly road trips from Iowa to Florida during the Christmas school break. My little brother and I kept our eyes peeled for Stuckey's billboards, and that's when the begging would begin! ""Dad, can we stop at Stuckey's? Pleeeease?"" Though my dad was a ""drive on through, stop for nothin'"" kind of guy, we'd eventually wear him down (my mother helped a little) and oh boy, then the happy countdown of miles began!

I remember stopping at a Stuckeys store in the '50's when traveling to visit my Great Aunt in Rogersville, Tennessee. I was born in N.E. Georgia, and up until the middle '70's, we could find a Stuckeys. I live their Pecan Logs.

I can remember the times when we visited relatives in Illinois. My family would always stop at Stuckeys for gas and the pecan logs. I got to love it even more when you got a free box of divinity with an 8 gallon purchase. We always stopped there and when I got married and took the family to Colorado and a cross country trip to California, we seeked out the Stuckeys on the way. I also LOVED the souvenir shops there as well!

"We grew up in Las Vegas, NV. On Hwy 93/95 between Las Vegas and Henderson, was your store. We would go on family outings, long drives through the desert, sightseeing and exploring a few times a month. And Stuckeys was always on the way home. We lived right off the highway near your location. And we would stop for a treat/snack/food, never gas. Lol The city had grown now, and the old location is practically city center for Henderson now. Your store holds fun childhood memories for us And I wish my son could've shared in them."

As a young girl my family always stopped at Stuckey 's along the way from Ok to Pa and back. It was always an enjoyable experience. I sure miss those days. Hope to find a Stuckey's to visit again one day

Those stores along 301 closed many years ago, like in the movie "Cars", when the interstates came along it really made it hard for those stores to survive.

I remember in the early 70's moving from WI to CA and stopping at every Stuckey's along the way. Thank you for making a 3 day move enjoyable. I love all their candy but the Pecan Logs are the best. There was still one Stuckey's in Vacaville CA but it burned down in the 90's. Just the name Stuckey's brings back such good memories. I really miss them. I hope they thrive and come out west again.
