Mr. Peanut became the official logo for the Planter's Peanut Company in 1916. He eventually came to symbolize the entire peanut industry, and remains today one of the most widely recognized icons in advertising history. For decades, the logo was one of the featured icons of Atlantic City. The cane with his image was sold as a popular nostalgia piece, and was especially popular in the South.
