I am convinced that Peter Pan survives because (a) the famous Peter Pan Burger Basket $1.99 commercial which, like Stompin’ Tom singing the 1-800 tourism number, drilled its way into the public’s mind and (b) because the only effective way to refer to the intersection of Rte. 1 and Rte. 2 by the Charlottetown Mall is as “the Peter Pan corner.”
They also make a good milkshake. And there’s that special relish.
