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!

1969 was our family's first road trip to Florida. It was a great trip. The Serpentarium, Monkey Jungle, Parrot Jungle, Miami, Busch Gardens, Whiiki Wachii, Silver Springs... On our way home, we stopped at a Stuckey's Restaurant. My entire family sat at the counter to eat. The waitress/cook asked if we would like any dessert? I was the only one interested, and asked what the had? She asked if I ever had Pecan Pie? I said no, but I'd try it. It was delicious. My choice for dessert (if available) has been Pecan Pie ever since. In fact I make Pecan Pies every Christmas, for family , and friends, from my own recipe. I had continued to make Stuckeys a stop when I would take my son on trip South. They stopped having Restaurants, and had only Pecan eatables stores for a long time. Now, stores are hard to find. But, Stuckey and their Pecan Pies, and candies, will always be my goto memories when thinking about roadtrips with my family. Thank you for that.

We live in Oregon, my dad was from Iowa. Every year we took vacation to Iowa for 3 weeks, I really remember the years 1975-1985 or so. We would eat sandwhiches, a lot of home made popcorn, cold chicken, mom really got us ready and back then you ate out of a cooler traveling....except for breakfast. Breakfast was Stukey's! Bacon, eggs, toast it was always SO good, sometimes I got a coke which was rare, in a cute little coke glass (I'm still a coke drinker). I still, at 53 eat bacon, eggs, toast when I go out and drink a coke. I always got a glider plane, a stuffed animal, or a state banner at least once during a trip 💜. I had this cool husky once that was multi colored fur over a plastic body, I had it forever. Great childhood memories 💜

I have great memories of stopping at Stuckey’s on I-95 from NC to Fredericksburg VAin the early 70s. We traveled to Front Royal VA every other weekend in the Fall for my brothers’ football game. I loved the burgers! My favorite, though, was the Mint Cloud!

When we were kids, we would go to Denver for a special day. Museum or zoo, amusement park, Casa Bonita restaurant. All that was great but, we always stopped at Stuckys just north of Colorado Springs. Remember the fun going there, the lines of pecan rolls and trinkets was great. My personal favorite was the vending machine by the restrooms that held a compass in a tire, little Indian knife in a sheath. 2 little dogs with magnets in of times. Thank you Mr Stucky.

When on vacation as a child, we always stopped at Stuckey's to eat. I collected different breeds of horses from the selection of plastic models and ate the rock candy on the stick and prickly pear cactus candy. I didn't even know they still existed until I saw a billboard sign for one in Oklahoma a few days ago.

I took my first trip to Florida in 1970 and I remember as soon as we came to Virginia on rt 301 we started to see Stuckeys and Horne's. We stopped at alot of them on that trip. It is sad to see there is not many left.

I used to work at Stuckey’s near Tipton, Iowa when I was in high school in the early ‘70’s. I loved it. We had a small snack bar and we made our own sandwiches etc. We also got to cut up the samples of candy for the shoppers. Met a lot of nice people working there and was nice to visit the travelers from other states. After that when ever I traveled I would always look for the Stuckey’s signs along the interstate so we could stop there.
