It slimed me! Hi-C Ecto Cooler returns to stores

- Ghostbusters is back and so is Hi-C Ecto Cooler! The Coca-Cola Company made the official announcement on Monday to bring back the drink which was once popular in the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Hi-C Ecto Cooler first hit the shelves 3 years after the popular Ghostbusters franchise first hit theaters. It was discontinued 14 years later.



Fans of the soft drink have long lobbied the return of the drink using hashtag #BringBackEctoCooler on social media. On Twitter, fans of @ResurEctoCooler was celebrating the news.

Hi-C Ecto Cooler will be sold in 6-ounce juice boxes and in 11.5-ounce thermal ink cans that actually turns slime green when chilled. Drink fans can be slimed beginning May 30, but for those who can't wait, a special contest has been set up.
