McDonald’s Is Taking Wraps Off The Menu For Good


McDonald’s is getting rid of their wraps. It seems the item hasn’t been doing well with McDonald’s customers, Bloomberg reports. Because of stagnant sales, the fast food chain has eliminated the item from store menus.

McWraps were originally intended to attract McDonald’s younger patrons looking to eat something healthy. Y’know, the millennials.

Unfortunately, they were too time-consuming for employees. Twenty seconds alone account for the steaming of the tortilla. Then, the chicken had to be cooked. It really slowed down production time.

Apparently, all-day breakfast has also contributed to the fall of the McWraps. It seems when you can get a Sausage McMuffin with Egg at 3pm, the desire for a McWrap goes out the window.

Hopefully McDonald’s next healthy addition fares a little better with customers.

McDonald’s Has A FISH MCWRAP In Singapore


Singapore McDonald’s has released a fish-inspired variation of their Chicken McWrap. You guessed it, the Fish McWrap.

Made with slice of tomatoes, single leaf lettuce and a fried fish patty. The McWrap is served in a flour tortilla with a spicy chili sauce. Essentially, it sounds like a Chicken McWrap with the protein swapped out of a Filet-O-Fish.

While US McDonald’s are cutting all kinds of wraps from their menus, it looks like the Singapore locations will feature them for at least a limited time.

The wrap itself will set you back $5.40. A little on the pricier side, but most seafood items are.

McDonald’s New Southwest Chicken McWrap Goes Nationwide


Just the latest through the golden arches wire: the fourth official McWrap flavor, “Southwest Chicken,” is now available at all McDonald’s locations from Eastport, Maine to Ozette, Washington. (The eastern and westernmost cities in the contiguous United States, didntcha know.)

The Southwest Chicken offers your choice of crispy or grilled chicken breast glazed with a cilantro lime sauce, along with chili-lime tortilla strips, spring greens, tomatoes, shredded cheese and spicy habanero ranch. Oh, and there’s a tortilla somewhere in there too.

McDonald’s Taiwan Rolls Out New Rice McWraps


McDonald’s Taiwan recently tweaked the classic McWrap and added some local flavor into the mix. The new “Rice McWrap” features rice from nearby Tainan, a city in southern Taiwan, mixed with either chicken or beef, sauce and vegetables. The texture of the rice has a tender, “al dente-like chew” to it, with mushrooms and sesame oil added for a boost.

The chicken version includes a fried chicken patty, sliced cucumbers, greens and a sweet and hot sauce. The beef version features an Australian ground beef patty, greens, seasoned rice, sliced beefsteak tomatoes and barbecue sauce to seal the deal.

Both wraps come in at 470 and 460 calories, respectively, and cost $99 NT ($3.32 US). This is one of the few times I wish I lived in a different country — it’s awesome seeing Mickey D’s bring in some local ingredients.

Meet the Breakfast McWrap, Stuffed with Bacon, Eggs, Hash Browns and Salsa


All right, for all the fanfare, we’ve got to admit the new chicken McWraps from McDonald’s are at best yawn-worthy, but what if they came with bacon and eggs and hash browns instead of those awful green wilted bits?

Europe, you are brilliant.

The new Breakfast McWrap from McDonald’s Poland is filled with bacon, eggs, hash browns, cheese, salsa, ketchup and onions and comes out to about 536 calories, which is still remarkably less than the 600 calories in the British version – which is pretty much the same except for the addition of sausage.

For comparison, the Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bagel in America comes out to 570 calories, while the Big Mac rounds out at an underwhelming 490. Kinda makes you wish all our new menu items just had all-around more bacon. If I’m going to have high blood pressure anyway, at least let it taste good.
