McDonald’s is phasing out a beloved drink from its menu and customers are not happy about it.
According to a memo addressed to McDonald’s operators and managers that appeared on Imgur earlier this week, the fast food chain announced its U.S. locations are going to discontinue Hi-C Orange after May 1. (The full official name of the drink is actually Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, which most of us probably didn’t know.)
People on Twitter were really upset about the news:

Customers: Your ice cream machines never work, fix them?— mike, aka (@iEatFatKidsFood) April 27, 2017
McDonald's: You spoke, we listened. Hi-C orange will soon be phased out. Thank you
McDonald is gettin’ rid of their Hi-C Orange. They should get rid of their ice cream machine since that sumbitch is always broken anyway.— Cloyd Rivers (@CloydRivers) April 27, 2017
McDonald's getting rid of the Orange Hi-C is the worst news I've gotten since i found out Caesar dressing is made from anchovies— Mikey Wagz (@Mikey_Wagz) April 27, 2017
Some fans are trying to find a way to stop the change from going through:
Considering all the backlash McDonald’s just received for its new “dystopian uniforms,” it seems like the chain needs a good PR moment right about now.
