Nerdversity Reviews: Hi-C Ecto-Cooler

In 2016, Paul Feig released his all female Ghostbusters reboot. Despite heavy promotion, it was considered a failure. 

To the excitement of Ghostbuster fans everywhere, Coca-Cola announced it was bringing back the Ecto-Cooler drink, which was last seen in the 90s, before sadly fading. The drink returned as 11.5 oz cans or here, the 6 oz juice boxes, which are sold in packs of 10.

The cardboard sleeve has the new logo on it, which is the slime dripping down. The middle piece is all the nutritional information and then the final piece is the promotional material for the Ecto-Cooler and the 2016 movie.

The juice boxes have the new slime logo over the image of oranges. It promotes the new movie coming soon to theaters.

Like the original drink, its a green colour and has a strong orange taste to it. It's cool and refreshing, especially on a long, hot summer, like what we've been having here in the UK.

Like with H. Grossman's stuff, Coca-Cola has done a great job in cashing in on nostalgia for Ghostbusters in general. Sadly, Ecto-Cooler never made it to UK shores, so this is an all new experience for myself. I fought tooth and nail to find these here on UK shores, so if you live in the UK, be prepared to pay around £20 for the 10 pack of juice boxes. I've yet to find the cans over here. I can honestly say that it was worth the price and the hassle to find it.
