News began to circulate that the fast food giant is discontinuing Hi-C Orange at its restaurants by July 1st.
A leaked internal memo on Reddit revealed that Hi-C Orange is being replaced by a proprietary Sprite flavor called Sprite TropicBerry.
Social media was not pleased.
If you are lucky and hurry, you may still be able to get your last fix of the Day-Glo refreshment as the memo stated that “[r]estaurants should continue to sell Hi-C Orange until they deplete their inventory, or their Sprite TropicBerry conversion occurs.”
