Ecto Cooler folks! It's coming! A Hi-C drink that us 80s kids remember so fondly, and hopefully, this new generation. Approximate release date, May 30 2016! Please, read on and enjoy my nostalgia...
According to wiki, the drink released in 1987, however my fondest memories of it were in 1990 when I was just starting school and enjoying the cartoon series Ghost Busters!
My mom would put this drink in my school lunch everyday. I'll admit, I was a bit freaked out at the green color of it and... it kinda had a bitter deep taste to it....... BUT THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF THIS DRINK!!!!
Yes, the taste! THAT BITTER SWEET TASTE! That is the flavor I have been longing for all these years! Soon I'll be able to experience that taste again!
Do you know what that taste reminds me of? Everything 80s, 90s, Nintendo, Ninja Turtle Pies, My IBM 286 PC, Bubble Tape commercials, Ghost Busters Episodes... it was great to live back then and there are times where one would wish these times would never end.
Next best thing? Hi-C decides to re-release this epic drink! Epic Cooler? Ecto Cooler? The names are interchangeable because Ecto is Epic!
My viewers! Follower or lurker, I implore you, HOARD THIS DRINK LIKE YOU'VE NEVER HOARDED BEFORE!
I'm told that this drink will be limited time only, so do yourselves a favor. Hoard the cans! Store'em in a cool place! They should last you quite a while. I can't lose this drink again. I just wish I had something to... commemorate my reunion with my childhood... (maybe a collectable press-release box?) Oh please Hi-C! Bless me with an Ecto Cooler Press-Release Box!
I may even do a video if I get one :D I'll review the drink (my personal experience) tell some stories about when I drank it, school moments, the works! I PROMISE!#ectocooler #hi-c #ghostbusters #coca-cola
