McDonalds have confirmed that Hi-C Orange Lavaburst will be returning to their menus and fans of the drink can barely contain their excitement.
Up until 2017, Hi-C Orange was a popular product on the McDonalds menu, but in April 2017 the fast food chain announced that they were discontinuing Hi-C from their beverage selection.
The drink was replaced with the carbonated Sprite TropicBerry flavor soda and Fanta but many customers were unhappy and took to Twitter to complain about it.
Now, in 2021, Hi-C Orange Lavaburst is finally back on the McDonalds menu, and the company announced the return on their official Twitter page.
