The third season of Stranger Things is bringing a shopping mall to Hawkins, Indiana. There’s nothing more representative of the 1980s than this bastion of consumerism all in one place, and since all the stores are eager to keep you from leaving the mall, there’s also some food and snacks to entice you. That includes cool treats from the Scoops Ahoy ice cream shop that Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) and new character Robin (Maya Hawke) work at.

But judging by the history of the drink, they probably won’t be flying off the shelves.
