Countdown to Halloween 2021 Day 14: Ghostbusters Afterlife Cereal Box

I picked up a family size box of the Ghostbusters Afterlife movie tie-in cereal way back in the beginning of September. I finished off the so-so fruity flavored corn puff cereal with marshmallow ghosts by the end of the month. There were not nearly enough of the blue and white ghosts. Sadly, there is no cheap plastic Ecto-1 toy or Stay Puft Marshmallow Man spoon included in the box.

Unfortunately, I really need to get a new digital camera one of these days since the back of the box came out too blurry to read. Usually, I scan the cereal boxes but I couldn't do that since it is family size, which makes it too big to fit on the flatbed scanner. Here is what the text on the back of the box says:

Do you have what it takes to be a Ghostbuster? Strap on your proton pack, fire up Ecto-1 and get ready to see if you have what it takes to join the ranks of the Ghostbusters' team of paranormal investigators!

Do you believe ghosts are real? a. least I really, really hope they aren't. b. Yes. My great uncle twice removed saw one onces. c. Heck yeah. There is one living under my bed right now.

You find a scret hidden chest of old ghost hunting equipment. What do you do? a. Play it safe and call the authorities. b. Cautiously test the equipment to see if it works. c. Strap on a proton pack and start hunting ghosts.

What equipment do Ghostbusters use to detect Psychokinetic Energy? a. Psychokinetic Energy sounds too scary. I don't want to detect it. b. PB&J Meter c. PKE Meter
