Stop in at Priester's for some quality sweets with plenty of free samples to quench a throbbing sweet tooth.
This is the perfect place to get out and stretch your legs on a drive down to the beach.
There are lots of yummy samples of different flavors of sugared pecans. You can find some good deals on the "whoops" area, where the chocolate coating doesn't look pretty but still tastes delicious.
You can go upstairs and look down on the production floor, which is interesting when there is action. We have been before after the workers have gone home, and then all you see is turned off equiptment. But you can still look at the walls and learn about different types of pecans and the history of Priester's Pecan Company.
Buy a drink, some pecan candy (or divinity! yummy!), take a potty break, and get back on the road nice and happy.
Open 7 days a week, Priester’s is a great stop on the side of I-65. Their restrooms are clean so that makes it an ideal rest stop with kids! During the week, the kids can walk up to the factory window to see the factory business being conducted. The ice cream is fantastic and the pecans are delicious. Sample as much as you would like, but make sure you buy a bag or two so that you can continue to keep the kids happy! Our favorite—the praline pecans!
