McDonald’s Will No Longer Serve This Fan Favorite Drink


If you grew up loving Happy Meals, you know
there are few tastes more nostalgia-inducing than the orange drink from McDonald’s — otherwise
known as Hi-C Orange Lavaburst. Unfortunately, that drink’s run as your go-to
beverage order at McDonald’s came to end over the summer of 2017 when it was quietly phased
out across the chain. The announcement came in April 2017 through
an alleged company memo leaked on Reddit, which said the drink was being axed to make
way for a new Coke beverage exclusive to McDonald’s, Sprite TropicBerry. According to the memo, Hi-C would be discontinued
May 1st and replaced with the new flavored Sprite over the summer of 2017, once each
restaurant’s Hi-C supply was depleted. Cries of despair and outrage could be heard
across the internet as fans discovered the drink’s demise, and those cries were particularly
loud on Twitter. The Facebook page McDonald’s Worker Memes
even changed their cover photo to an image of Hi-C Orange Lavaburst in memory of the
drink, with some workers sharing their stories of unhappy customers — and others bragging
about still carrying the elusive beverage. However, 2017 is coming to a close and Sprite
TropicBerry has yet to be revealed to McDonald’s customers. Instead, most McDonald’s are serving Orange
Fanta, most likely in an effort to appease those customers craving something orange to
wash down their Big Macs. Unfortunately for the Golden Arches, it’s
not going over well on social media. For now, however, fans of Hi-C Orange Lavaburst
do have other options. Twitter users claim to have found the drink
at select Wendy’s restaurants, and you can also buy it on Amazon and at many grocery
stores — but you’ll probably want to enjoy that in the privacy of your own home, unless
you don’t mind sipping on a juice box in public “Hi-i-C! Hi-C! It tastes so wonderfully!” “wonderfully!” Perhaps the best option for Lavaburst lovers,
though, is Jack in the Box, who wasn’t afraid to take advantage of McDonald’s poor choices,
tweeting, “Hi-FIVE!!! We still serve Hi-C! #HiCOrange #YoureWelcome.” At least there’s one fast food chain that
still cares about your childhood dreams. Thanks for watching! Click the Mashed icon to subscribe to our
