McDonald's new McWraps are meant to better compete with Subway in the sandwich category. I recently tried the Grilled Chicken & Bacon McWrap, which comes with a few slices of a grilled chicken filet, diced pieces of bacon, two half slices of tomato, spring greens, shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar jack cheese, and a creamy garlic sauce.
Regardless of which version you choose, each McWrap is typically sold for $3.99.
The first thing I noticed about the McWrap was its fairly unique packaging. It resembles a much larger version of a McDonald's pie box, but with a tear strip around the center that allows you to easily open it, while leaving half of the box to serve as a sleeve for portable eating.
Burger King beat them to the punch here in the US by offering their salads with a whole wheat wrap option starting last year.
The veggies were mostly iceberg lettuce, which made a bulk of the McWrap. There's not a lot of flavor between the greens and the slice of tomato.
A lot of the flavor comes from the creamy garlic sauce, which is a yogurt-based sauce that still tastes a lot like mayo with only a light garlic flavor. I prefer the garlic sauce at a local place called Zankou, which is mostly just pureed garlic, making for an intense and delicious garlic flavor. With the McWrap's sauce, the garlic is a far second thought.
