Why is McDonald’s replacing Hi-C Orange Lavaburst soft drinks?

Eva Ellenburg

Q. Why are the locally owned McDonald’s replacing Hi-C Orange Lavaburst soft drinks with a Sprite mix that tastes like medicine? Hi-C has been a product staple along with Coke for decades at McDonalds. Who is responsible, corporate or local?

Thanks to Hardees and Burger King for keeping it on their drink menus.

A.¬†Answer: Getting rid of Hi-C Orange Lavaburst at McDonald’s was a corporate decision announced in May 2017. Restaurants all over the country phased out the popular drink by July of last year, replacing it with the McDonald’s-exclusive Sprite TropicBerry as part of the fast food chain’s partnership with Coca-Cola.
