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.

Moved from Florida to Carlsbad, N.M., visited the Stuckey store located there and found Mullis relatives managing the store. Didn't know them personally but it was a treat to meet them. They became good friends.

Always was exciting to stop at Stuckeys. Spending a portion of my vacation spending money was always dedicated to finding the Stuckey sign to stop at. Hopefully locations can secured along the pan handle of Florida and near Gatlinburg and the Helen GA areas. Thanks. For bringing the brand back with the same great quality.

Almost every summer, in the 1960’s we would travel across the country from West Virginia to Oklahoma to see our grandparents on my dad's side. We would start seeing the Stuckey’s signs where it would say 50 miles to Stuckey’s, then it would be 25 miles and we would start yelling it out to our dad. Dad, Stuckey’s is only 25 miles away. Dad Stuckey’s is 10 miles away. Dad Stuckey’s is 5 miles away. Dad Stuckey’s is 1 mile away, Dad,take this exit, there’s a Stuckey‘s! My dad would pretend to look the other way and say where, where... Read more

My dad would pretend to look the other way and say where, where ,where? Dad, you missed it! And we would get mad at him, but then he would stop another time for us and my mom always had to get the Pecan log rolls , now that I’m grown up and older I still look for those signs! It brings back wonderful memories of driving across the country in the back of the station wagon with all the windows down! Thanks Stuckey’s for the memories!... Collapse

I remember stopping at Stuckeys while on family road trips out west in the 1970s. One snack we would pick up there was “THILL”. I think it was some sort of popcorn mix with nuts. I also thought (and I could be mistaken) that some of the Stuckeys were located near Howard Johnson’s hotel chains. Fun to think back on these trips!

Stuckeys is a name that will forever stick in my mind. I will never forget my parents stopping at a Stuckeys when we were traveling up and down the east coast when I was a child. Salt water taffy, pecan log rolls and hot dogs. Those were great times and memories. To this day i still talk about Stuckys with friends and family. Thank you for the great memories.

I traveled for twenty-six years with my late husband, singer/songwriter Nat Stuckey. We stopped at many Stuckey stores to load up on goodies. We were always treated so well and everyone on the bus oved the goodies. Thanks for being there!

Back in the 1970s I camped across the USA. During my travels I came upon a Stuckey's store! That's how I got hooked on Stuckey's! I fell in love with the log rolls. The rest is history! Wherever I traveled across the USA I would try to find a Stuckey's, even if it was miles out of my way I would go. Sometimes I would take a picture to save for nostalgia.

Always I would get back on the road with a sweet treat to keep me happy. If I could buy a shirt on hat, I would do that too. Once I was on a train trip across Texas and I was looking at the scenery out the big window. In the distance I saw a Stuckey's sign. I got so excited! Although I couldn't visit that store because I was on the train, it still gave me some happy memories and made me smile. I hope that Stuckey's stays in business for a long time and I hope I'll see the Stuckey's sign again soon in my travels.... Collapse

When I was growing up in the 1960's and 1970's we would go every summer to either my grandma's in Saskatchewan or my grandma's in Kansas from our home in California. This meant Route 66 when we headed to Yates Center, KS and always a stop at the Stuckey's along the way. It's a part of my childhood I loved. A hot dog, a candy bar, pit stop for gas and bathroom break. The truck stops now don't have the charm of the Stuckey's.

I loved Stuckey’s when I was a kid. I always wanted to stop there when we traveled back to visit relatives in PA. I loved the pecan logs. In 1980, when I was in Plebe Summer at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, my Mom sent me a care package with probably 10 pecan logs inside the box. My roommate and I completely devoured all of them in about an hour. I got so sick that I didn’t eat one for several years after that. Now, I enjoy them (in moderation) but each time I have one I think about... Read more

I will always get at least one pecan log but I will savor them and not inhale them anymore. Thanks. TH Manley... Collapse

Isn’t it amazing how a taste, a texture, or a name can bring back a flood of long forgotten memories? This is the case when I found a package of Stuckey’s Toasted Pecans on the shelf of my local Ingles grocery store. My memories of Stuckey’s go back more than 60 years. I grew up in Vermont. For spring break my family made an annual trip to Florida to escape the long winter. Dad was determined to get to the warmer destination as soon as possible so he opted to travel US Highway 301.

This is the case when I found a package of Stuckey’s Toasted Pecans on the shelf of my local Ingles grocery store. My memories of Stuckey’s go back more than 60 years. I grew up in Vermont. For spring break my family made an annual trip to Florida to escape the long winter. Dad was determined to get to the warmer destination as soon as possible so he opted to travel US Highway 301. This was when the Interstate Highway system was in its infancy and under construction. One thing we looked forward to once we got to Virginia were the billboards promoting the next Stuckey’s. It was a great place to take a break, fuel up, and have lunch. I believe Stuckey’s is where I began my fascination with the War Between the States. It was not a subject taught in Vermont schools. To this day I remember perusing the gift aisle of Civil War memorabilia of such items as felt kepi hats. Then there was the trick and gimmick display of such things as the bug in the acrylic ice cube, the hand shake buzzer, and the x-ray glasses. Oh, the joy of being a practical joker. The further south we got the merchandise selection changed to stuffed alligators and the most beautiful selection of sea shells. Lunch was a treat and a good time to stretch legs and cool off. The little batwing vent windows couldn’t always keep up with the road heat. Reaching the Florida State Line meant fresh squeezed orange juice and an egg salad sandwich packaged in a clear plastic triangular box. Desert would be a pecan praline. To this day I have weakness for pralines. Thank you for continuing the tradition of the Stuckey's name. Stuckey’s is part of Roadside Americana.... Collapse
