McDonald’s is bringing back its Hi-C Orange Lavaburst almost three years after it discontinued the iconic beverage, the fast-food restaurant chain said on Wednesday.

The drink will roll out in select locations in February and across the country by June, according to the company’s statement. Hi-C is made by the Minute Maid division of the Coca-Cola Company and sold in juice boxes nationwide. 

 

“You asked for it, you got it—Hi-C Orange at McDonald’s is back! With a fruity flavor that teases your tastebuds it’s the perfect addition to any McDonald’s meal,” the company said on its website.  

The Hi-C Orange Finder will be updated weekly as of February 15 as the beverage rolls out nationwide, McDonald’s added. Customers can use the Hi-C Orange tracker by typing in their zip code to find the nearest location offering the drink.

McDonald’s discontinued Hi-C Orange Lavaburst –also referred to as the “orange drink” in 2017, saying it would replace it with the Sprite TropicBerry. 

The decision saddened loyal customers and McDonald’s workers. Shortly after McDonald’s decision to kill Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, customers petitioned online to bring the drink back, saying “For many people, this is the drink they’ve been drinking from McDonald’s for years. It needs to stay at McDonald’s for customers to enjoy!”

This is not the only beverage that McDonald’s said it will bring back. Last week, the fast-food restaurant chain said it will bring back its Shamrock Shake and the Oreo Shamrock McFlurry for a limited time starting Monday across all US locations.

McDonald’s confirmed to Insider on Monday that its US chief field officer Charlie Strong is retiring after over 50 years with the company.
