Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which of the following brands released "Ecto-Cooler", a drink which featured the ghost Slimer from "The Real Ghostbusters" as the mascot?

Answer: Hi-C

"Ecto-Cooler" was a green colored juice drink marketed by Minute Maid under their Hi-C brand. It was originally known as Citrus Cooler, which featured the flavor of orange/tangerine. In 1987, Minute Maid rebranded the drink "Ecto-Cooler" and the ghost Slimer, who was a character in "The Real Ghostbusters" animated series, was selected to be the drink's mascot and would remain the mascot until 1997 after the animated series had canceled. "Ecto-Cooler" made a brief return in 2016 to coincide with the release of the new "Ghostbusters" film featuring Melissa McCarthy.
2. Which of the following is not one of the "monster cereals" marketed by General Mills?

Answer: Fruit Zombie

General Mills first introduced their "monster cereal" brands in 1971. The first two cereals to be produced were Count Chocula and Franken Berry. A few years later, General Mills introduced the Boo Berry cereal. A few other flavors were introduced, such as Fruit Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy, but both brands were discontinued after a limited run.

The other three brands continue to be produced today, but they are only available during the Halloween season. Each cereal features toasted corn pieces and marshmallows mixed with their respective flavors.
3. What is the name of the monster mascot who belongs to the McDonald's fast food chain?

Answer: Grimace

Grimace is a large purple monster who debuted in 1971 as part of the McDonaldland cast of characters designed to promote the McDonald's brand. Other characters to debut in 1971 were the Hamburglar and Mayor McCheese. When he was first introduced, Grimace was portrayed as a villain who loved to steal sodas and shakes.

He was later changed into a good guy. You may be able to find Grimace on the sides of Happy Meal containers.
4. What animal parts are in a sesos taco that would make it a good meal for a zombie?

Answer: brains

Sesos tacos are a Mexican delicacy. They are made out of brains, most often from beef or goat meat. The process in making sesos tacos may make someone too squeamish to eat them, but patrons often rave about their deliciousness. At one time sesos tacos were banned in the United States, due to the threat of contracting mad cow disease. Eventually the ban was lifted and sesos tacos have slowly been returning to menus across the country.
5. Count Dracula took a vacation to Italy, where he treated himself to a dish called sanguinaccio dolce. What did the Count have?

Answer: blood pudding

Sanguinaccio dolce is an Italian pudding made from pig's blood. The blood is mixed in with chocolate, various nuts and other ingredients. The recipe came from villages in southern Italy who would hold pig festivals. They prepared various items using pork meat such as sausage and other items. Every part of the pig was used, with the blood being included in some desserts such as sanguinaccio dolce.

It is said to be the favorite dessert of Hannibal Lecter.
6. A ghost floated into a bar and ordered himself a spirit. Which of these should the bartender have given him?

Answer: a shot of whiskey

A spirit is defined as a "strong distilled liquor". Whiskey, brandy, gin, rum are all alcoholic beverages created by distillation and are considered to be spirits. Beer and wine are created via fermentation, not distillation. Distillation allows beverages to achieve higher alcohol content than those created from fermentation. Looks like this ghost was looking to get himself hammered.
7. What kind of candy bar did Chunk give the monster man Sloth in the movie "The Goonies"?

Answer: Baby Ruth

"The Goonies" is a cult classic film by Steven Spielberg that was first released in 1985. The movie centered around several treasure hunting kids searching for the treasure of a pirate named One-Eyed Willy. Also searching for the treasure were the Fratellis, a family of dangerous criminals. One of the kids named Chunk (Jeff Cohen) ended up getting locked in a room with Sloth (John Matuszak), a severely deformed member of the Fratelli family that the kids initially saw as a monster. Chunk offers Sloth a Baby Ruth chocolate bar and the two become friends. Sloth later helps the other kids escape from the Fratellis.
8. Bhut jolokia is a spicy pepper that is native to India. What is it known as in the western world?

Answer: ghost pepper

Bhut jolokia is a pepper that is native to northeast India. It is known in the western world as ghost pepper and was listed as one of the world's hottest chili peppers. The Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) is a rating to measure the spiciness of various foods. Bhut jolokia (ghost pepper) has been known to tip the scale at over 1 million SHUs. By comparison, a standard jalapeno pepper can range from 2,000 - 8,000 SHUs. Ghost pepper is so hot, that some restaurants that serve it will have warning signs and may make you sign a waiver before consuming it.
9. The Aztec civilization is theorized to have created sacrificial drinks that mixed human blood with which substance?

Answer: cacao

The ancient Aztecs were known to have introduced the Europeans to cacao, the plant from which chocolate is made. It is theorized that the Aztecs and the Mayans may have felt that cacao was a sacred commodity and even believed it to be a substance that existed within the human body.

It is said that the Mayans and Aztecs would mix human blood with a beverage made from cacao as an offering to the gods.
10. Silver bullets have been known to kill werewolves. If that is the case, then which of the following beers should a werewolf avoid drinking?

Answer: Coors Light

Coors Light is a brand of light beer produced by the Coors Brewing Company in the United States. Coors Light was first introduced in 1978. Coors Light earned the nickname "the Silver Bullet" due to the fact that the beverage is distributed in all silver cans.

The design of the cans is credited to a Cuban-American artist named Marc Barrios. A silver bullet is known to be an item capable of killing a werewolf, so they should probably steer clear of Coors Light.
