Making Good Things Better: The Mac Wrap

I'm a man on the go. I'm always in motion, closing deals, submitting reports or googling my name. There's not a lot of time in my day for things like nutrition, good taste or even edible meals. Recently I was on the road and hunger was calling my name.

That's where McDonald's has come in to help. As a Canadian Exclusive, Mickey D's has recently added to their lines of wraps. Combining the strengths of their tasty tortilla wraps with the classic taste of the Big Mac is the Mac Snack Wrap. No longer is there any need for 2 all beef patties or a sesame seed bun. What we get is an oddly shaped all beef patty, pickles, onions, lettuce, special sauce and 2 cheeses. Shredded Cheddar and Monterrey Jack replace the well worn taste of American cheese.

While I can't support outsourcing half of our Mac cheese needs to Mexico, the Mac Wrap was a success. The only thing I could think of while biting into the tasty $1.89 morsel of goodness was when I would need to Mac Wrap.

The Mac Wrap is also a healthy choice. At 350 calories and 21 g of fat the wrap version it is certainly more nutritious then the 540 calories and 29 g of fat of the classic version. Of course you need at least 2 wraps to match the hunger quenching qualities of the original but the wrap is so compact you can enjoy while jogging. So get out your New Balances & start running fatso because the Mac Snack Wrap, unlike your stomach is here for a limited time only.

Are you kidding me? A BigMac in a tortilla shell. Disgusting. Apparently, not only are Americans fat, they no longer have taste buds. If mcDonald's put dogmeat wraps on the dollar menu, I'm sure everyone would run out to get one. Learn to to cook people. It is possible to feed your family nutirious meals on a budget.

Are you joking? Healthy? Gimme a break. Check the sodium and saturated fat content next time around, in addition to the horrible values you already posted. And, BTW, you're clearly not a math major, but if you eat 2 of the wraps, you're "treating" yourself to 700 calories and 42 grams of fat, well over what you get in a Big Mac, and STILL not getting the same amount of food as in 1Big Mac.
