Report: McDonald’s To Phase Out Hi-C Orange, Offer New Drink

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It’s a sad day for people who enjoy a classic McDonald’s beverage: Hi-C Orange.

Reports indicate the fast food chain will begin phasing out the neon drink on May 1. A representative for McDonald’s told Eat This, Not That that all locations will cease carrying the drink after July.

According to a memo posted on Reddit, a new beverage called Sprite TropicBerry will be offered and served exclusively at McDonald’s locations.

Locations have been told to sell Hi-C until the supply is gone, so fans should hurry to enjoy every last drop.

The top comment on the Reddit post expects anger from customers: “It’s gonna be a fun few weeks up ahead. Hi-C is one of the more popular drinks at my location.”

People took to Twitter to express their disappointment.
