Many licensed products have come and gone over the years but few are spoken about with as much rose-tinted reverence as the Hi-C Ecto Cooler drink, tied into the Ghostbusters franchise. It delivered a refreshing citrus taste with a kick of various chemicals that created a color worthy of a Ghostbusters tie-in. Well apparently the Ecto Cooler is back! Coca-Cola had renewed the Ecto Cooler name late last year which got a lot of nostalgic Ghostbusters fans excited, and now there appears to be proof of it’s existence in the wild. Indeed, there is an eBay auction for a can claiming to be a prototype for a beverage which is coming to stores. Currently some idiot has bid $400 for it, but that’s fandom for you.
With more and more info on the new Ghostbusters movie coming out, bringing back the Ecto Cooler seems like a no-brainer as many fans, kids when Ghostbusters was first a thing, now have the chance to give their children oddly colored sugar water. But in all seriousness, this is pretty darn cool.
