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.

I remember Stuckey's going down the I-75 to Florida and now, even as an adult still love THEM to pieces. Still love the sugar coated pecans which I hope they still sell

My grandparents, Al and Maggie Butler lived in Eastman, Ga. My grandmother Maggie had a sister .. who I believe was married to Billy Stuckey?? I remember going to the Stuckey Candy plant as a young girl. If you read this and knew the Stuckey family please reach out to me at sdoyle@bcps.org

I grew up in Stuckey's stores as my parents were managers in 3 stores over 8 years. 2 in Michigan and 1 in Illinois. Turned out to be my 1st job. Couldn't beat the sugar & spice pecans!

In the 1950's, My mom and her "girl friends" would make an annual Christmas shopping trip from Jonesboro AR to Memphis. One of their regular stops was the Stuckeys near Marion, AR. She would always bring us back a pecan roll to share. Our once a year treat. It is still my favorite candy.

Stopped at the Rockport Stuckey's. Haven't been in one in over 45 years. Still remember the pecan logs and how my mom always had to have one. Then it was carefully rationed out. Bought two small pecan logs and ate them both in quick order. A different taste than I recall from childhood, but still worth the walk down memory lane.

My memory is going to one in Colorado. Those pecan rolls, and Rocky Mountains made a big impression to a kid!

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of traveling around the country and stopping at Stuckey's. We always made my father stop at a Stuckey's. While Stuckey's is famous for the peanut brittle and pecan, another great memory was the Stuckey's souvenir cigar. In fact, my first cigar was Stuckey's!!! Now as an adult, I am disappoint that we don't have a Stuckey's in McKinney, TX. Please bring Stuckey's to McKinney so that I might relive my childhood.

I am 65 and my father's family was from Knoxville,TN. Before I-75 was built we, 6 kids and parents, would travel down Rt. 25 or Rt.27. We would occasionally stop for gas and food. I can remember our most favorite was STUCKEY'S. I would get a papaya drink and of course the PECAN LOG. I don't see any STUCKEY'S but look for them whenever I travel South. When we get together we always recall those trips, especially stopping at STUCKEY'S because dad wouldn't stop just anywhere. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

My parent were traveling managers and trained alot of managers. We traveled to all of them at one time or another for their work. We lived in three of them too. Martin, Michigan and Rosebush Michigan were our longest assignments. I grew up in Stuckey's Stores. Great memories.

"As a child, we would stop at a Virginia Stuckey's on the way to the beach house. Stuckey's treats were such a delight. Sadly, after recently receiving an online order, I understand why their stores closed and the company is failing. The quality of their products is now simply awful and their customer service is worse. Keep your memories and your $$. Don't buy from this site. M"

My dad was in the military so we traveled across the country a lot, from Kansas, the Dakotas, to North Carolina to Texas. I always remembered stopping at Stuckey's for food and gas. Our job as kids was to look for the signs to Stuckey's and let dad know how far the next one was. Great childhood memories and still get excited with flashbacks when me and my kids travel today . . .

We used to stop at a Stuckey's enroute to Florida every year in Statesboro, GA on US 301 and then we would stop at one in Hilliard, FL for breakfast every year, also on US 301. Are those Stucky's still there? They were good stops for us throughout the 1970s and early 1980s.

I worked at Stuckeys for 2 years while in high school and enjoyed the experience greatly. Met lot of interesting people and pumped a lot if gas from 25 to 35 cents a gallon. Yes it was in the early 70's. Was so disappointed when they closed down. I at least like, today get to enjoy a Stuckeys product or two on occasion. I used to have a book describing the history of Stuckeys pecan plantation and stores but have not seen it when I moved out of my parents home many years ago. If anyone knows where I could...

Driving on family trips from California to Texas to visit mom's family, there were always many stops at Stuckey's!! It became a family "joke" to say we needed to stop for a milk shake to hold us over til dinner! Recently driving through Texas and encountered Stuckey's products at a truck stop!! The pecan roll and divinity are my favorites! Thank you for the stroll down memory lane!!! I will be back!
