McDonald’s is bringing back Hi-C Orange Lavaburst to its menu across the country nearly four years after it stopped offering the iconic drink in 2017.
The fast food giant announced on Wednesday that the fan-favorite beverage will start rolling out in select locations this month and will be in participating restaurants nationwide by June.
“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,” McDonald’s said in a news release.

To help fans track the return of Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, McDonald’s created the special website McdFinder.com where customers can input their zip code to find the closest location serving the drink. The website, which will launch on Monday, February 15th, will be updated on a weekly basis.
Hi-C Orange Lavaburst is a non-carbonated drink that debuted on McDonald’s menus back in 1955. Sprite Tropic Berry, a carbonated drink made by Coca-Cola exclusively for the chain, replaced Hi-C Orange Lavaburst on McDonald’s menu in 2017.
In addition to the return of Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, McDonald’s also announced on Wednesday that it is bringing back the carbonated Fanta Orange to its menu, making its “legendary orange drink roster” complete once again.
As previously reported, McDonald’s Shamrock Shake and Oreo Shamrock McFlurry are also making a limited-time comeback starting February 15th.
