Ecto-Cooler


Ecto-Cooler was one of the greatest cross promotions ever.  In 1987,  Hi-C agreed to promote "The Real Ghostbusters" cartoon series by developing a flavor based on it.

I don't even know if I really liked Ecto-Cooler, but I drank it because it was associated with Ghostbusters and had Slimer on the front.  It only tasted good when it was really cold, which probably says something about the taste.



When Ecto-Cooler was warm or at room temperature it was straight up disgusting.  I swear it could have been warm piss in that box because that's what it tasted like.

Ecto-Cooler existed until 2001 then it was renamed Shoutin' Orange Tangergreen.

Yeah, I wouldn't drink anything with that name because it just sounds like a fancy name for the cheap orange drink served at  elementary school functions mixed with green dye.

It underwent another name change to Crazy Citrus Cooler in 2006, but the drink was discontinued for good in 2007.  At least they were smart enough not to use K's instead C's.

Although something tells me, black people still might have had some trepidation about drinking it.
