Fans of The Real Ghostbusters cartoon, which aired back in the 1980s, may remember the Hi-C Ecto Cooler. This drink was a neon green Slimer-inspired version of Hi-C’s OG fruit drink that actually stayed on grocery store shelves until 2001. Well, it's making a big comeback in anticipation of the Ghostbusters reboot starring an all-female cast.

The Hi-C Ecto Cooler may be colored green but it tastes like orange. Hitting shops in 10-packs of 6-ounce juice boxes and both 6- and 12-packs of 11.5-ounce cans, people will be able to cheers to the reboot in appropriate style. The idea of nostalgic marketing has been hugely successful. Not only do people who lived in the original era love it, but younger generations also have a deep appreciation for such pop culture staples.
