McDonald's has discontinued my favourite drink.

I am so *ucking pissed right now, it's unbelievable. I just went through a McDonald's drive thru and found out they discontinued their orange "drink". Now I'm not talking about their orange juice or Orange Crush. It was their own powdery concoction that tasted like sweetened Tang. And what did they replace it with? Coke Zero. WTF. Does the world really need another Coke?

I can't believe they discontinued it! I've been drinking this stuff since Sports Day when I was in elementary school and I've had very fond memories of it. I'm raging right now and I had to post my thoughts right this moment. Over the last few years, it really has been the only reason that's kept me going to McDonald's. I'd take a Burger King Whopper any day of the week, and now it seems that I have to. I don't think McDonald's is going to miss my business, but I will not return to Rotten Ronnie's until my orange "drink" comes back.


*Update Aril 27th, 2009*

I swore I would never go back, but I did. About a week after swearing I'd never go back, I found myself lining up with the other lemmings, and couldn't help overhearing what some of the other customers were saying when they found out there was no more orange drink. There was a bit of a revolt which led to the night manager providing us with the phone number of head office. She said that if enough people complained, they may just bring it back.

Now I don't normally do this, but I am pleading all of you who've had you sweet childhood memories of sportsday or hamburger day robbed by that sadistic clown. Bring back the orange drink! Call McDonald's at:

Toronto: (416) 446-3932
Vancouver: (604) 293-4834
Montreal: (514) 421-4881

  1. Yeah, we had some kind of orange drink in the States. I think it was Hi-C, and we might still have it. I don't know. I mean, I thought it was the greatest thing when I was a kid, but as an adult, I usually find myself grabbing a root beer or a sweat tea. Do you have the $1 large sweet tea in Canada? Is it like $1.15 Canadian maybe? I think McDonald's actually has the best sweet tea, so maybe you want to give that a try instead?

  2. i was uphauled to hear this. i am on the line waiting now..BRING IT BACK!

  3. It's actually Hi-C, now available at your local CocaCola Freestyle stand (check Cineplex theatres).
