News: McDonald's Testing Chicken Flatbreads

Similar to their Snack Wraps, McDonald's is testing a four Chicken Flatbreads. The four varities are BBQ Bacon Ranch, Four Cheese, Southwest, and Tuscan Tomato Basil. Test markets include Baltimore, Nebraska and New Mexico. Pricing is within the $1.89 range or 10 cents less than an Angus Snack Wrap.

Each Flatbread features a base of grilled boneless chicken breast pillowed by warm, toasted flatbread.

The BBQ Bacon Ranch builds on that with bacon, a four cheese blend (Fontana, Cheddar, Mozzarella, and Monterey Jack), garlic aioli (read: garlic mayo made with oven-roasted garlic), and a barbecue ranch sauce.

The Four Cheese is the most basic of the four Flatbreads with just the shared garlic aioli and blend of four cheeses, but more of it.

The Southwest Chicken takes the same garlic aioli and four cheese blend, and adds pico de gallo (chopped tomatoes, onion, and cilantro) garlic and guacamole (avocado, tomato, onions, and jalapenos).

Finally, the Tuscan Tomato Basil flatbread features with garlic aioli, a blend of four cheese, oven-dried tomatoes, and a basil pesto (basil mixed with olive oil, Parmesan, and Romano cheese)

I hope these make their way out to California, they sound a lot tastier and more interesting than the current Snack Wraps. Plus a flatbread wrap appeals to me a lot more than a tortilla wrap. They sound a lot more upscale than anything else McDonald's is currently offering.

  3. I got to try a Tuscan Tomato Basil flatbread about a month ago in New Mexico on a road trip, and it was really good, quite a surprise. I like McDonald's alright, but the only thing taste wise that compares is the chicken mcnuggets and their breakfast stuff (totally different of course, but those are great too). It was far better than the angus snack wraps for example, and i kinda like those. Hope these come to California soon!!
