We as Dads know that quick lunches are important in our busy lives, of course we all also worry about value of that meal in both cost and nutrition. McDonald’s recently launched in Canada its new signature wraps showing them to be the healthier alternative to their sandwiches.
That being said this dad wanted to see what the fuss was about and set out to try this new item. The family and I piled into the truck and headed for McDonald’s. I placed our order and received our new signature wraps. Personally I find the grilled chicken bland and buttery so I went with crispy. The nutritional value for the wrap I had chicken and bacon is actually comparable to a Big Mac. The wrap having 600 calories in its 230 grams as well as 33 grams of fat while a Big Mac having 540 calories in its 209 grams with 29 grams of fat. As you can see it’s not actually that much different in nutritional values. The cost also was not a big difference.
Generally a Big Mac sandwich cost roughly 4.49 plus tax and the wraps 4.99. While I believe the cost is high it still is comparable to other meals. They do come in different flavors which is nice there is the one I had Chicken and Bacon, and also Fiesta and Sweet Chili. The taste is something that is not what I should expect they were fresh including all the produce and very flavor-able. Actually quite tasty unfortunately not very filling for the cost. I alone ate 3 that is $15 before counting fries and a pop. They come neatly in a box that is opened by a rip tab and leaves you holding the bottom half keeping the wrap neat and easy to handle.
Based on all the facts I give a dirty diaper score of 3. The nutritional value and cost leaves this dad a bad taste in his mouth.
