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.

McDonald is gettin’ rid of their Hi-C Orange. They should get rid of their ice cream machine since that sumbitch is always broken anyway. 🇺🇸
