It’s official: Starting May 1st, you will no longer be able to order this popular McDonald’s menu item.

It’s the sweet, iconic beverage that’s been on the menu for decades; the popular drink that complements Happy Meals and evokes feelings of nostalgia with each sip. And starting May 1st, it will start disappearing from McDonald’s menus everywhere.

The fan-favorite drink that’s getting the axe is... Hi-C Orange Lavaburst! That’s right, the same refreshing beverage that cooled you off after a romp around the PlayPlace and tasted especially good with McNuggets dipped in honey. It may be an old wives’ tale, but some adults swear by the vibrant orange drink as a hangover cure. Sadly, customers only have a few more days to get their hands on it.

The One Menu Item You Should Never Order at McDonald’s

  The One Menu Item You Should Never Order at McDonald’s This fast food giant’s mascot may be a clown, but don’t assume we’re joking around when we say you should absolutely *never* order this from McDonald’s.After years of failed turnaround efforts and plummeting sales, McDonald’s finally has its act together: Thanks in part to a refreshed ingredient list that limits preservatives and artificial additives as well as a boiled-down menu that focuses back on the basics, Mickey D fans are certainly putting a smile on again.

people entertainment sports culture videos create a list about us advertise press we ' re hiring ranker insights. With the ever-changing fast-food landscape, these old McDonald ' s menu items just couldn't keep up.

Follow Us . Good news: There’s a hidden world of food waiting for you on McDonald ’ s unofficial, unadvertised secret menu . So, next time you see those golden arches, switch it up with some of these must-try items you never realized you could order.

Franchises nationwide will start phasing out the popular beverage starting on May 1 through July. After July, all locations will stop carrying Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, according to a McDonald’s representative we spoke to. Instead, the fast food chain will start distributing a new proprietary Sprite TropicBerry beverage that will only be served at McDonald’s restaurants in partnership with the chain’s deal with Coke.

Although the drink will start being discontinued in May, locations are encouraged to keep selling it until their inventory is depleted, according to a McDonald’s memo posted to Reddit.

It looks like McDonald’s employees are already preparing for the backlash; Reddit user mattfu916 commented on the post, "Its gonna be a fun few weeks up ahead. Hi-C is one of the more popular drinks at my location."

15 of McDonald’s Most Spectacular Failures

  15 of McDonald’s Most Spectacular Failures <p>McWrap, we hardly knew ye.</p>Bringing a brand-new fast-food item into the world is anything but an exact science. You can do all the planning, field testing, and marketing in the world, but at the end of the day, there’s no way to know whether a new release will sell until it’s unleashed on the public. And few fast-food chains have rolled out as many failed menu items as McDonald’s.

By Dana Leigh Smith. In late 2014, McDonald ’ s announced plans to axe a number of their burgers, chicken sandwiches and Snack Wraps—but Ronald and his crew aren’t stopping there. The fast-food giant recently confirmed that they’ re trimming even more of the fat—metaphorically speaking

And "popular" is quite the understatement. Just take a look at what people have said on Twitter about the orange drink in the last few weeks of its Mickey D’s residency:

Despite its fervent following, Hi-C isn’t exactly the best drink for your belly.

At 220 calories, 60 grams of sugar, and 60 grams of carbs in a 21-ounce medium, and high fructose corn syrup as the second ingredient, we may be better off having this beverage off the menu. But that doesn’t mean we won’t miss it.

Let’s all take a moment to mourn the loss of this delicious drink — and our childhoods.
