Can You Buy Hi-C Ecto Cooler? Starting In May, You Can Again, Thank God
Hollywood is obviously trying to ruin all of your childhood memories of beloved franchises like Ghostbusters, but surely this news will ease the pain: Ecto Cooler is back! Where can you buy Ecto Cooler? Well, you can’t just yet, but Slashfilm reports that Sony and Coca Cola have teamed up to re-release the chemically delicious boxed treat that sent middle schoolers in the late ’80s into sugar-fueled freak-outs across America.
If you’re feeling super nostalgic, you can suck down your Ecto Cooler from a squeeze juice box, cafeteria-style, or you can drink it out of the much classier cans, which turn green when the delicious Ecto goo inside is cold. This is great news for all the DIY Ecto fans who have been trading recipes all over the Internet and mixing it with their alcoholic beverage of choice. Like, say, Dan Aykroyd’s Crystal Head Vodka. Or delicious male tears. The salty tang really brings out that fake citrus flavor, you know?
Hi-C Ecto Cooler will be available for a limited time, beginning on May 30. This is just one of many Ghostbusters tie-ins planned, such as this four-person video game that actually lets you play as a female character. Like most video game tie-ins, it looks pretty bad, but hey, that’s equality for you.
Ghostbusters, which stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, hits theaters on July 15.
