Back in February, an image of a new can of Hi-C’s nostalgic drink Ecto Cooler, inspired by the Real Ghostbusters cartoon back in 1987, emerged online. This seemed to be confirmation that the Coca-Cola Company was going to revive the beloved flavor after it was discontinued in 2001. Now an official press release from the soft drink company has revealed when we’ll see Ecto Cooler return to shelves in honor of the new Ghostbusters movie hitting the big screen this summer.

Most people like having a tasty snack when they go to the movies. That’s why movie theater chains charge an arm and a leg for M&M’s, nachos, pretzels and the classic movie snack popcorn. Even at home people like popping their own popcorn to enjoy a flick from the comfort of their own couch. The only downside is you get your hands all salty and buttery, and who has the time for napkins, washing hands or being a decent human being?
That’s why Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage teamed up with Swedish inventor Simone Giertz to create a popcorn helmet that automatically dispenses popcorn and feeds it into your mouth. After all, you’re trying to watch a movie, you don’t have time to feed yourself with the hands you were born with, right?
