Well I'm sure you've seen the ads for the newest snack wrap, the Mac Snack Wrap. Yes, the Big Mac is in snack wrap form. And like 3 weeks ago I tried one out. Back in 1998 or 1999 McDonald's came out with the McWrap (which was always degraded to sound like McCRAP), a big pita sandwich that I liked as an alternative to burgers. So combining my love of the Big Mac with the Wrap, could this be a winning combination?
Compare the promotional photo above with the actual photo below.
So what makes this wrap a Mac Wrap? Lets break this down:
- Small Tortilla (FOUND IN BIG MAC)
- Shredded Lettuce (FOUND IN BIG MAC)
- 2 pickles (FOUND IN BIG MAC)
- Shredded Cheese (NOT FOUND IN BIG MAC, normally slice of American cheese)
- Special Sauce, 'Mac Sauce' (FOUND IN BIG MAC)
- 1/2 Big Mac patty (note: 1/4 Pounder half patty may be substituted) (FOUND IN BIG MAC)
What's Missing? 3 buns, onions? Note: there may be onions, but I didn't really taste or see them.
The first thing to keep in mind is that this is a SNACK. It is small. I mean, 1/2 of a Big Mac Patty is pretty freakin small. Like 2 bites. So don't think of this as a meal. Don't do it. Snack.
But the important thing is the taste. Once I was actually holding the wrap that I was suckered into wanting, I was thinking, maybe this isn't so great. But I ate it . . . and it was good. Because there is no buns and the tortilla is thin, you taste almost all Big Mac. I mean the dominant flavours of meat, pickle and Mac Sauce.
My biggest complaint would be that it needs another good squirt of Mac Sauce. But otherwise, this was a fresh snack that I liked. Again, nothing special. It wouldn't replace the Big Mac by any means. It was worth trying, but I wouldn't be ordering it on a regular basis.
