Hi-C Ecto Cooler Might Be Making A Comeback
The 2010s are the new ’90s, what with all the TV reunions and series reboots/revivals (The Powerpuff Girls, The X-Files). The Splat launched in October 2015, airing classic Nickelodeon shows and TV movies most of us haven’t seen since we were 10. Plus, ’90s movies such as The Lion King were rereleased in theaters for new (and old) generations to enjoy.
And with all the ’90s nostalgia brimming on the Internet, it was only a matter of time until classic ’90s food and drink items returned to grocery shelves. First, Surge made a highly-anticipated comeback in 2014, selling out on Amazon almost immediately.
That’s why the possible revival of Hi-C’s Ecto Cooler is driving millennials wild. Already a Facebook trending topic, the Twitter account Resurrect EctoCooler dropped a bombshell for fans of tasty green drinks everywhere.

Created as a tie-in for the Ghostbusters franchise, the drink’s timing for this revival and the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot featuring an all-female team of ghostbusters is quite interesting.
There’s now a can of Ecto Cooler available for auction on eBay, with the drink currently going for $175.50.
As of right now, it seems to only be available via eBay, but with all the hullabaloo spreading from a can being sold on eBay, it’s only a matter of time before we see the tasty drink on shelves once again. I mean, Coca-Cola did reregister Ecto Cooler’s trademark in September 2015, after all.
