Fast Food Corner


A few coworkers of mine were dead-set against me trying the latest "innovation" from McDonalds - the Mac-Wrap. The coworkers asserted that the Big Mac was nothing to mess with - the burger itself was the picture of perfection, and any "experiments" done with it was sacrilege.

So, based on this, you get the idea that the Mac-Wrap is a spin on the Big Mac ... a moe "healthy" spin, in which the buns were replaced by the wrap, but the other main ingredients are still included. Another point of contention from the coworkers was that the beef patty is cut up into little pieces (apparently, another no-no when it comes to the Big Mac).

But, I decided that this blog was bigger than that - I had to move forward and try the Mac-Wrap ... I know that my readers are depending on me. So, I moved forward, made the purchase ... and ... much to my surprise, I actually liked this sandwich. Nope, it's not as good as the Big Mac, but it's a good, healthy alternative ... of course, the fries make up for the healthiness.

I was not a fan. Maybe it was the pickles. I should have got it without pickles. Not sure but the sandwich is better.

Macs and Mac-Wraps. Ew. Only thing I like from McDonald's are their Shamrock Shakes around St. Patty's Day. And the occasional hot fudge sundae.

I like bread too much. Wraps don't do it for me.

I'm sure it tastes good, but I'm going with "nope" on this one. When I allow myself the fat and calories of McDonald's, I'm eating the good stuff.

However, the fries make up for it. ;)

Speaking of attempts as low cal fast food, and you may have already blogged this, I can't remember, but do they have the new "drive thru diet" menu at your Taco Bells? Just curious...

I was going to ignore this post....but I just can't. Mac Wrap? Really?? The Big Mac is an institution that should not be messed with people! Remember New Coke?? What'll be next, Mac Salad....or maybe Mac Smoothie?? This is a travesty.

I have planned on trying it - but haven't been to McFat's in a while.

I'll give it a go soon.
