As the weather here in Central New York slowly but surely heads in the direction of summer, area McDonald's restaurants are getting ready to introduce a new beverage.  The new drink will replace the their Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, which will be phased out beginning next week.

McDonald's will then begin unveiling the new beverage called Sprite TropicBerry.  According to, the new soda will only be available at McDonald's restaurants.

If you're a fan of the Hi-C Orange Lavaburst, don't panic quite yet. Although its phase out begins next week, most McDonald's locations will continue to serve it until they run out.
