CHICAGO, IL (LOOTPRESS) – We know fans of Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, AKA Hi-C Orange, have been craving the iconic beverage since it rolled off national menus in 2017. To those who have passionately asked for us to bring it back over the years, we’re excited to say we “C” you. Your tweets, DMs and petitions asking for its return gave our social media community manager a LOT of content to choose from for an important menu team meeting this morning…and thanks to you, Hi-C Orange Lavaburst will return to McDonald’s menus this year as a regular soft drink option, available nationwide by this summer.
You heard that right – let the happy tears and Hi-C Orange flow!
Hi-C Orange Lavaburst will begin rolling out in select locations this month and will be in participating restaurants across the country by June, so fans can kickstart summer with this refreshing favorite. Until then, customers can input their zip code into our Hi-C Orange tracker – which will be updated on a weekly basis starting Monday – to find the closest McDonald’s already offering the delicious orange drink.
When asked for a comment following their successful meeting, our social media manager said, “WE DID IT! sure, I created the v impressive Hi-C® Orange Lavaburst presentation for my boss, but I couldn’t have done it without u all, the real MVPs! ur fandom over the years, countless tweets and even IRL petitions are what brought Hi-C back. thx again for the pep talk this am and for making it easy to spread this little bit of joy – seeya in the DMs to celebrate!”
