I have been looking forward to making a stop at Stuckey's since following the rebuild on Linkedin. My son and I stopped at I-95 Exit 231 in Florida. I have not had a pecan log since I was a kid so I thought we needed to try one. Sorry to say but we were both very disappointed with the product. As we opened the package, there was an odor or old oil. That same taste permeated the log roll. We each had a couple of bites and then decided that this was not for us. Hate to say but ...26

Still miss those delicious Sugar and Spiced pecans made with sugar, cinnamon, and cocoa powder. Are they discontinued permanently?

The only vacation my daddy would take was always to the NC mountains. We would load up the car, set out for the mountains and he would only make 1 stop on the way to our destination and only 1 stop on our way home from our destination. Guess what those 2 stops were: Stuckey's stores for pecan logs and souvenirs! Those were the days!!

In 1961 we took a road trip from Long Island, NY to Miami Beach Florida. I don’t remember actually stopping at Stuckies (on a shoestring budget, probably didn’t), but remember the billboards, and my mother’s comment was always something like, “my stomach just bubbles for Stuckies”. I don’t know if that was one of the billboard sayings, but remember watching for them, as well as those for South of the Border in South Carolina. Mom’s favorite was pecan pie, so maybe we did stop.

Lot's of fond memories visiting Stuckey's stores throughout the southern states back in the 60's to mid 70's when our family drove to Florida and Tennessee for summer vacations. The pecan rolls were my favorites. Remember when the Texaco gas attendants wore their green uniforms? Let's hope Stuckey stores re-open along the interstates. Thanks for the memories Stuckey's:)

When i was growing up (many years ago - i'm 49 now) my dad was career US Air Force. I can remember stopping at Stuckey's every time we travelled and could find one!! We found them moving from CA to NH (1983) and found them moving from NH to SD (1986) and many other road trips as well. Many of my fondest memories are of us stopping in Stuckey's to look at all the souvenirs, to get something to eat and my mom ALWAYS got a pecan roll!! Thank you, Stuckey's, for making my long road trips to new places (and old ones too) so enjoyable! <3 I'm so glad to have found you online since there aren't any Stuckey's in Alaska lol!

… Family vacation roadtrips, 1957 - mid ‘60s in the ‘’54 Studebaker. My brother & I, bored and sweaty in the back seat, would spot a STUCKEYS 75 MILES AHEAD billboard glimmering in the haze of the blacktop heat through the windshield and we would start counting down the miles, getting more antsy and noisy with each passing mile. 40 miles…20 miles…5 miles…and finally, “Just Ahead.” We would start swaying in unison, leaning hard right in the direction of the turnoff, back and forth, back and forth….to make sure the car turned off the highway and parked right in front of the looming STUCKEYS, our mecca for sodas and sticky-sweet candy. Alas, pop would say, “we’re making good time, we’ll stop at the next one down the road.” And so it went. Right past the turnoff. Decades later, my brother and I would invariably buckle over with laugher when the roadtrips and STUCKEYS popped up in an occasional nostalgia Sunday family-dinner conversation with our parents. We would finish each other’s sentences, telling our shared, now fish-tale-like roadtrip story: STUCKYS 1,800 miles…1,000 miles… ”Just Ahead.” With every telling, the miles between STUCKEYS grew exponentially, our yelling “Turn, Turn, Turn’” grew louder and louder as we pantomimed in unison leaning hard right to make the old, hot, Studebaker take the fast approaching turnoff - one time knocking over a big pitcher of sweet tea - banging into our wives and kids, who groaned out loud and rolled their eyes at the retelling yet again of the STUCKEY STORY. Thanks for the wonderful memories STUCKEYS. BTW, when we did stop, usually on the way home, we pigged out on pecan rolls and divinity - and blowing advances on our allowance, which our parents always forgave, brought a sash of STUCKEYS goodies home that lasted about a day, maybe.

My Dad was in the Air Force so I traveled a lot when I was young. I'm from Savannah, Georgia and always got so excited when we would stop at Stuckey's!! I also asked for the thin taffee and the coconut spread! My parents loved the pecan logs and Hunky Dory!!! I wish Stuckey's would make a come back and provide those awesome memories again. Until then, at least I can order my coconut online and relive my memories at home!

I remember stopping at Stuckey's off I 75 in Georgia in the 60s and 70s. I was pleased to be driving through there again in 2022 and see a Stuckey's integrated with a BP station in Perry Georgia, including buying candy, a pecan log roll, and even saw the Stuckey's dog park. I would love to see them comeback to a full station chain!

I'm encouraged to see that Stuckey's hasn't died. It seemed that way for a while. My wife and I grew up on opposite sides of the country, but the one thing we had in common was road trips that included a stop at Stuckey's along the way. I hope to see more come back to life so our children same share that memory with us.

I have many fond memories of my family stopping at a stuckies restaurant,it seems my mother could not pass an opportunity to have a piece of your delicious pecan pie and of course we would get a meal to go along with it! To this day every time in my travels if I happen to pass a stuckies I get this overwhelming urge to stop and have some pecan pie,and of course have a meal to go along with it! Always have desert first because life is uncertain!

Stuckey brings such great memories. When I was young we went to Florida every year. Stuckey was a great part of the vacation. I always wanted some souvenir. I bought these rubbery type of animals. I got a hippo, mouse, and pig. I still have them on my dresser. I saw a monster one at an antique store for $3,000. Before I saw the price tag I wanted to get it to add to my collection. My husband suggested I sell mine. I told him they are a great childhood memory and they will not be sold. Thanks for the wonderful memory of those long highway trips.

Hi, when I was a young boy we moved to Florida. When we would take long road trips out of the state and region, we always new we were getting close to home when we saw the Stuckey's Billboards and stop in Georgia. (fast forward) I believe in comeback stories and I identify with it, and Stuckey's is a great American comeback story.

My father, Felton Goodwin, worked at the first Stuckey store in Eastman GA in the 1960s.

Oh the memories I have about stopping at a Stuckeys on a long road trip with my parents as a kid! I made sure to look for that iconic billboard on the highway. Stuckeys is a part of Americana and rightly so. I'm not sure what it was about stopping at one, but it was so cool! Of course, everyone remembers the pecan logs but I remember my mom buying me a souvenir or two from a Stuckeys one time. It was a small can that had a picture of cows on the side. Whenever you flipped the can over, it would made the sound of a cow mooing. Another fond memory was my mom buying me Mexican jumping beans there as well. Oh how I wish I was a kid again!!! Thank you for the memories!!!

Riding with my mom and sister is a fake wood-paneled Country Squire station wagon, my sister and I in those unsafe-as-heck fold-up seats that face each other in the back. Trips were from Texas to California in 1972 (Grand Canyon, Disneyland, Carlsbad Caverns) and a bunch up to Wisconsin and back to visit my mom’s parents. We would stop at Stuckey's and get pecan logs, travel bingo games, candy cigarettes, and those sheets of colorful candy dots stuck on paper. Oh, and the wax “soda bottle” candies. Wherever that Country Squire is today, I bet there are still bits of those candies stuck all over the ruined carpet in those seat wells!

In the early 70s, my parents ran a Stuckey's right off I-80 at the Atlantic, Iowa exit. We lived in an apartment in the back of the store. I still have pics of my parents in the store, as well as a Stuckey's Coffee Club mug and my own Stuckey's name tag (although I wasn't much help since I was only 2!) Even though I was young, I still remember a little bit of being there. Of course, my parents had plenty of stories, too - especially about our trip to GA to visit Mr. Stuckey.

My early memories of Stuckey’s was when I was 10-12 years old visiting the Stuckey’s store on Highway 98 in Panama City Beach Florida. The store was there for many years. It breaks my heart to know its now gone. My mother would purchase the Pecan Roll and my father Pecan Divinity. This Christmas I purchased a Pecan Divinity at a store in memory of my father. Keep producing those great candies Stuckey’s!
