Fast food review: McDonald's Big Mac Snack Wrap

I'm a fan of fast food that is affordable and tasty. Sadly, drive-thru grub is getting more and more pricey in recent years with many "value" meals now costing over $6. Many ff joints have added "snack wrap" products to counter this trend and keep things in play for us upper lower middle class folk.

In keeping with my tendency to write about and photograph the food I eat, one of my readers requested that I give the new Big Mac Snack Wrap the ...ASAT treatment. When Macca's put some coupons in a recent batch of coupons for a freebie with a drink purchase, I figured now is as good of a time as any.

The wrap comes in a standard tortilla with lettuce, American cheese, pickles, Big Mac sauce, and half of a hamburger patty.

It has a nice, crunchy texture from the lettuce. The flavor of the pickles and the ample glob of secret sauce balance nicely and the sauce coats the lettuce for a pleasant salad effect. Even the small portion of beef and cheese keep the wrap from being too greasy or heavy.

Overall, this is the perfect fast food fix for those on a budget and/or diet or those who just want a little taste of Mac-ness without committing to eating a giant sandwich. It is my second-favorite Big Mac variant/knockoff behind Burger King's gone-but-ne'er-forgotten Big King.

4 out of 5 Captain Crooks.

That 2nd picture looks like something you might find stuck in a grate at a sewage treatment plant.

Nice one! I had heard someone on Facebook bash it and needed a fast food guru to give it a review.

The next one is massive influx of fish sandwiches that all the ff places throw out there every lenten season.
