If you’re a child of the 80’s than you were probably a fan of the Ghostbusters movies as well as the extremely awesome The Real Ghostbusters Saturday morning cartoon. Spawning from that cartoon were a ton of merchandise, including action figures, proton packs, and even a Hi-C drink called Ecto-Cooler.
Once again, if you were a child of the 80’s not only did you love Hi-C but Ecto-Cooler was more than likely your go to. The drink has had a bit of a retro revival with people posting the old commercial on YouTube, reminiscing on how much they loved the drink, or even Ecto-Cooler scented candle.
However, by far the coolest revival of this flavor has been from a Pennsylvania Brewing Company by the name of Tired Hands. They call their invention the Nector-Cooler. Their process involves grilling nectarines and infusing them with their wheat beer.
However, this cool news comes with a downer. As reported by Geek Tyrant, Tired Hands have already sold out of the batch and don’t currently plan on making another. One can only hope that they decide that this is a flavor they need to continue. In the meantime I’m going to keep an eye on their website in hopes that they bring it back and then I’m planning a trip up to Pennsylvania. All I need to know is, who’s coming with me?
By the way, the Ecto-Cooler candle pic is from Diana Prince’s instagram, give her a follow for awesome nerd and horror stuff @dianaprincexo
