While we eagerly await the first Ghostbusters trailer (click here for a sneak peek), some fans are already anticipating the tie-in products the new movie will bring. Those tie-ins include the nostalgic beverage, “Ecto-Cooler” from Hi-C. A promo can has leaked online, and director Paul Feig confirmed that the fruity, sugary beverage would be making its way back into stores this year. The question now becomes will the drink be as good as fans remember, or will they be sipping straight from the fountain of nostalgia?
Another and far less appetizing Ghostbusters item hitting grocery shelves is Twinkies “Key Lime Slime”, which look like they have green goo oozing out the middle as if Twinkies weren’t disgusting enough (and before the Twinkie defenders start chewing up the comments section, Twinkies are gross; they’re beloved as a novelty, not for their taste, which is like cream wrapped in old shag carpeting).
It will be interesting to see if any more Ghostbusters food-related items are headed our way this summer. The film opens July 15th and stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth.
Here’s the official logline for Ghostbusters:
Thirty years after the original film took the world by storm, Ghostbusters is back and fully rebooted for a new generation. Director Paul Feig combines all the paranormal fighting elements that made the original franchise so beloved with a cast of new characters, played by the funniest actors working today. Get ready to watch them save the world this summer!
Via 96.1 KISS.
Sooner than that. Details to come. https://t.co/K1F4mv2C0h
