This week, McDonald’s brought back our favorite ‘90s toys in partnership with Nintendo, but unfortunately, the chain has announced that it will ditch another menu item that inspires nostalgia for your childhood. Starting May 1, McDonald’s locations will start phasing out Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, and come July, the drink will no longer be available, Eat This, Not That! reported.
Naturally, Hi-C fans are mourning the loss of their favorite McDonald’s beverage on Twitter.
McDonald's is getting rid of Orange Hi-C. My whole childhood is dead. I used to always get that instead of orange juice in the mornings.

McDonald's getting rid of the Orange Hi-C is the worst news I've gotten since i found out Caesar dressing is made from anchovies

With all the social media feedback, McDonald’s assures the internet that change can be a good thing.
@berrypatchmom We are always evolving our menu. Change is good from time to time!

So don’t worry, this isn’t the end of fruity drinks at McDonald’s — the fast-food chain is introducing a new beverage, Sprite TropicBerry, on May 1. According to a McDonald’s representative, the new drink is caffeine-free with a lemon-lime taste blended with tropical flavors, Eat This, Not That! reported.
