Like The McRib, Hi-C Orange Lavaburst Is Back At McDonald’s

There are certain things you do not take away from the people, and McDonald’s has had a history of NOT listening to the people. The McRib and Shamrock Shake are only available when the fast-food corporation feels like it and Mickey D’s ripped Hi-C Orange Lavaburst out of our lives in 2017.

It’s the little things that count, and McDonald’s learned that lesson when they pulled Hi-C Orange Lavaburst from its menu in 2017.


Because they had a partnership with Sprite, so they added TropicBerry and chucked the drink that has been in our hearts and souls since 1955.


On Feb. 10, McDonald’s announced Hi-C Orange would be in select locations starting this month, with all locations having the drink by June.

It was a big deal.

Even Hot Wheels was excited.

“The loyal fandom of this deliciously fun and fruity beverage that teases your taste buds dates back to 1955, when it first debuted on McDonald’s menus,” a press release read. “The non-carbonated Hi-C Orange Lavaburst drink returns to menus alongside the carbonated Fanta® Orange offering, making our legendary orange drink roster once again complete.

This part’s great. McDonald’s developed a special website for people to track when the drink will be available in their area. The Hi-C tracker goes live Feb. 15, so be ready.
