Nerdversity Reviews: Ghostbusters Interactive Jellies


In 1984, Ivan Reitman directed the first Ghostbusters movie. It was a supernatural horror comedy from the minds of Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. 


Whereas the Hi-C and Slime Tubs were nostalgic throwbacks, yet designed to promote the 2016 movie, these Interactive Jellies are based on pure nostalgia and are based on the original movie. They come in a black bag with hazard stripes on the top and bottom of the bag. There's a large No-Ghost emblem in the middle and it shows how the jellies work.

 
The back of the bag continues the black theme. There's also the hazard stripes on the top and bottom. As well as having the ingredients and nutritional information, they also show how the jellies work again.


Inside the bag, you get white ghosts, which have a faint coconut or vanilla taste, whereas the red No emblems have a faint strawberry taste. Many people would consider them more gummy like, rather than jelly.


As they are more flexible than people think, you can actually make the No-Ghost emblem without it breaking. They fit together well. However, they only fit in the classic way, so sadly, no chance of logo customisation here.
