Christmas is just around the corner and with the current situation going around the country, you’re probably wondering how in the world you’re going to get all of your holiday shopping done this year. Besides that, what are we going to tell our kids if Santa is locked down at the North Pole due to global travel restrictions in what could turn out to be a 2020 remake of the Christmas classic “The Year Without a Santa Claus”?
Well, don’t worry. Stuckey’s has you covered because today we’re going to present you with gift ideas that should suit just about everybody on your Christmas list. And since it will be here before we know it, let’s get started!
1. How We Roll for the Holidays
Coming in at number one on our list is, of course, our iconic Stuckey’s Pecan Log Roll.
Using the same recipe that first made the Stuckey’s name famous, this sweet confection’s light and fluffy nougat center is mixed with maraschino cherries, then hand-dipped into freshly-made buttery caramel before finally being hand-rolled in a generous amount of chopped Georgia pecans. It’s also been a staple of the American road since Ethel Stuckey started making them way back in 1937.
Whether you buy them in the 2 oz., 4 oz., 6, oz., or 10 oz. rolls (our biggest pecan log roll yet!), any size you order is sure to fit easily into anybody’s stocking.
Or better yet, for the perfect Christmas gift, buy them by the bunch in one of our souvenir gift tins emblazoned with a photo of one of our original stores.
Pecans not your thing? Then why not consider our mouth-watering Stuckey’s Peanut Rolls made with our traditional nougat center that’s dipped in sweet buttery caramel and then rolled in a plethora of peanuts for ultimate goobery goodness!
Whether you’re on your way to visit friends or family or waiting for them to arrive this holiday season, Stuckey’s pecan log rolls or peanut log rolls are sure to please!
2. Candy Everybody Wants
It wouldn’t feel like the holidays without some candy at Christmas, so why not have some of our sweet and delicious pecan candies on hand for your holiday guests?
Our Pecan Divinity is a true Southern favorite that is, well, simply divine with all of its creamy nougat both blended and topped with plenty of chopped pecans. It a delicious treat that even looks like Christmas!
And could there be a warmer welcome for guests than our creamy Pecan Pralines, especially when you warm these tasty treats up in the microwave for 10 seconds or in a 250° F oven for 10 minutes?
Moreover, you’re holiday guests will be running quicker than a rabbit to nibble on our Milk Chocolate Pecan Turtles. Made in small batches with fresh Georgia Pecans, they are the perfect creamy texture that is sure to delight even the fussiest Christmas Scrooge.
And what Christmas would be complete without munching on some of our famous Peco Brittle (or the classic Peanut Brittle)?
Let’s not forget how boring plain ol’ popcorn will feel after settling in for the night to watch your favorite Christmas special with a bag of Hunkey Dorey caramelized popcorn with almonds and pecans.
Of course, Stuckey’s carries a wide variety of sweet deliciousness from other brands such as Crown Candy’s gluten-free coconut bon-bons, haystacks, and macaroons, or Anastasia’s Classic Original Coconut Patties – all fun and delicious candies made especially for that coconut enthusiast on your Christmas list.
Oh, and while you’re filling those stockings with those Stuckey’s pecan logs mentioned above, go ahead and throw some of those other favorite Southern treats – Goo Goo Clusters – right inside there, too!
Finally, fill up those candy dishes with some of our famous Stuckey’s Salt Water Taffy and creamy Stuckey’s Toffee Logs and you’re ready for both some giving and receiving this holiday season.
3. Start Going Nuts
Pecans don’t always have to be covered in chocolate or caramel to be enjoyed during the holiday season. After all, Stuckey’s debuted their Toasted ‘n Salted Pecans in 1952 and they became an instant hit with both travelers and the folks back home alike.
Today you can still enjoy Stuckey’s Toasted ‘n Salted Pecans by the bagful, along with our other signature flavors including Honey Roasted, Vanilla Bourbon, Honey Cinnamon and Honey Glazed. And thanks to Stuckey’s recent acquisition of the family-owned Front Porch Pecans, there are even more great flavors from the Front Porch Pecan brand to munch on including Sea Salt, Maple and Unsalted flavors.
Can’t decide which flavor to try first? Then start with our pecan sampler pack which contains all 5 of our Stuckey’s flavors – Toasted & Salted, Honey Roasted, Vanilla Bourbon, Honey Cinnamon and Honey Glazed Pecans in resealable 4 oz. bags.
But wait! We’re not finished going nuts this holiday season just yet. Along with pecans, Stuckey’s is also the place to go for that other famous Georgia nut – the peanut! You can get them Honey Roasted or Salted ‘n Toasted, or why not both?
And of course we didn’t forget the cashew available in Toasted ‘n Salted, Honey Roasted, or seasoned with a little Salt and Pepper. Heck, you can even get them mixed with pecans, almonds, and peanuts in what we call our Honey Cinnamon Nut Mix for a real nutty and Christmassy-tasting kind of treat.
And speaking of nutty, if you like a little bit of variety in your holiday munchies, then you want to get our “Nutty” Box. First made famous back in the 1950’s and 60’s, the Nutty Box offers a combination of some of your favorite Stuckey’s snacks; in this case, it’s three of our favorite flavors of pecans with two unique cashew items.
Whether you putting them out for the holidays or wrapping them up as gifts for friends and family, why not make Stuckey’s part of your family’s traditions?
4. Holiday Cheers
Every family has a beerologist, libationist, beer devotee, beer maven, beer expert, hophead, a tippler, a grog artist, a boozer, a beer buff, well…you get the picture, so why not give them what they really want for Christmas – a four pack of Stuckey’s Pecan Log Roll Beer?
That’s right! Stuckey’s has teamed up with Wild Heaven Beer just in time for the holidays and created a brown ale using real Georgia pecans and hints of nougat and maraschino cherry that tastes just like our famous Stuckey’s Pecan Log Roll. Taking a sip is like hearkening back to the days when you would travel for hours to visit your relatives (or your dad’s old Army buddies) for the holidays and make your Dad stop at nearly every Stuckey’s store along the way.
Unfortunately, right now Stuckey’s Pecan Log Roll Beer is only available for pickup at Wild Heaven Beer 135B Maple Street in Decatur, Georgia. However, if you live in the area, or you know somebody who does, stop over and pick up a four pack for only $12.99 and ship it to your favorite beer connoisseur. Follow the instructions here for packaging it and here for shipping it to make sure it gets there just in time for the holidays.
5. Mug it Up at Stuckey’s
What’s a great gift for the one who gets their kicks with a little caffeine fix? Why, of course, it’s one of our coffee mugs decorated with our iconic billboards and retro logos or original artwork created by Derek Art’s own Derek Yaniger an American artist who’s worked for the likes of Marvel Comics and the Cartoon Network. Today he does freelance magazine work, and sells original artwork heavily influenced by the illustration styles and Tiki culture of the 1950s.
