Behind-the-Scenes of WTFCF S3, E3: Stuckey’s – An American Icon Reborn
“The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.” Sugar-plums! Does anyone really know what a sugar-plum is?

As a child my grandparents did take my sister and I to a chocolate factory (no names mentioned – but it is a big one). It was soooo disappointing. You see the main factory had just closed to visitors and there was an animated ride in its place. You sat in a car, moved along a track and saw all kinds of fake chocolate being made. To make it worse the chocolate smell was piped in. “No Bueno.”
Finally, 50 plus years later I did get to see a chocolate factory. WTFCF visited Stuckey’s manufacturing facility in Wrens, GA Nov. 16.
