What is Hi-C’s Ecto Cooler?

Hi-C is a fruit juice flavoured drink made by the Minute Maid division of The Coca-Cola Company.

Essentially as a rebrand of Hi-C’s Citrus Cooler flavour, the neon-green Ecto Cooler beverage was a product tie-in with the cartoon series The Real Ghostbusters, based on the 1984 live-action film, Ghostbusters.

The luminous green drink was widely popular among kids and remained in production for a decade before eventually being discontinued in 2001.

Back in 2016, Hi-C Ecto Cooler returned to store shelves in celebration of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call.

Something strange now seems to be in the neighbourhood again, as the Ecto Cooler makes an exclusive return to social media.

How to get a bottle of the iconic Ghostbusters drink

Hi-C recently took to various social media platforms to announce the return of Ecto Cooler, which is being given away to lucky fans.

You could be in with a chance of winning a bottle of the iconic green drink which will be packaged in an exclusive commemorative 12 oz bottle for the first time.

The beloved bottle will not be available to purchase but you may get ‘slimed’ by following @DrinkHiC and @Ghostbusters on social media and showing the accounts some love.
