McDonald’s is bringing back an all-time fan-favorite menu item

Rejoice, fast food fans: McDonald’s Hi-C Orange Lavaburst is back.

For some McDonald’s customers, those words may be virtually meaningless. For others, however, it’s a huge, huge deal.

Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, a non-carbonated drink, was first served at McDonald’s locations dating all the way back to 1955. It eventually developed a massive cult following before leaving the menu in 2017.

Needless to say, those passionate fans were heartbroken. Many criticized the chain on Twitter, and a few even launched a petition to bring back the beverage.

McDonald’s clearly heard those complaints, though. On Feb. 10, the company tweeted that Hi-C Orange Lavaburst would be making a triumphant return.

“Y’ALL WE DID IT,” McDonald’s wrote.

Fans of the drink quickly expressed their excitement, tweeting words like “finally” and “about time” in response to the announcement. Many asked when they’d be able to get the beverage.

To that question, McDonald’s responded with an entire website. The page, will tell customers exactly when their local franchise will be stocking the Hi-C Orange Lavaburst. Updates are set to begin on Feb. 15.

Many fast food fans are patiently awaiting that moment. Some were so shocked by the news that they couldn’t believe it was true.

“Wait…. Is this real!!!! If you play with my heart again I am leaving you,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Omg yes we need this,” another added.

McDonald’s Hi-C Orange Lavaburst is just the latest fast food item to resurface after customer “protests.”

Late last year, Taco Bell announced the return of its beloved potato-based options after fans of the chain launched a massive petition. Some fans literally protested in the streets.
