Attention ‘90s kids! After months of swirling rumors, Coca-Cola has officially announced the return of the neon-green Ghostbusters-themed juice drink: Hi-C Ecto Cooler. Slimer would definitely approve.The limited-edition drink will hit shelves on May 30, just in time for the summer release of the all-female Ghostbusters movie reboot on July 15.
“Hi-C Ecto Cooler fueled a pop culture phenomenon that is well remembered and beloved by fans to this day,” said Charles Torrey, Vice President, Minute Maid/Hi-C Brands, Coca-Cola North America. “Sony Pictures was extremely enthusiastic about bringing it back for this special occasion, and the timing of the upcoming Ghostbusters film made this the exact right time.”
Hi-C Ecto Cooler was released in tandem with the first Ghostbusters movie back in 1987, and after a few different rebrands, disappeared altogether in 2001, much to the dismay of fans.
Now the lemon-lime drink is back in 10-packs of six-ounce juice boxes and in six- and 12-packs of 11.5-ounce aluminum cans. The cans are decorated with thermal ink that turns an eerie shade of green once the drink is cold.
