After a 15 year hiatus the Hi-C Ecto Cooler has risen from the grave to be among us in the land of the living yet again. The last time this drink was seen was in 2001, after being around for 14 years. Originally the drink was intended to be a promotion for the original Ghostbusters, but the drink took on an unlife of its own and became a cult classic in its own right.
The drink is set to hit the shelves yet again on May 30th a little over a month before the series reboot set for July 15th. This was all made possible by the fans of the drink with social media pressure and petitioning, with the added support of Sony Pictures, to make the comeback possible. This resulting in the Coca-Cola Company reviving it before the films release.
The new Ecto Cooler will be sold in packs of 10 6 ounce juice boxes, as well as 6 and 12 packs of 11.05 ounce cans. For added effects the packaging will utilize a thermal ink that will change the color of the slime when chilled. Does this mean we will see it on the shelves for another 14 year go around, only time will tell.
