Review: Burger King - Crispy Chicken Ranch Snack Wrap

Burger King's Ranch Crispy Chicken Snack Wrap is pretty much identical to McDonald's Crispy Ranch Snack Wrap at least as far as components go. It's lettuce, shredded cheese, Ranch dressing, and a fried, breaded chicken strip wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

I picked up one for $1.59 at my local BK restaurant.

Actually, the lettuce in the Burger King version has some pieces of Romaine lettuce and various greens in there (it's their salad mix), which is slightly fancier than McDonald's uniform shredded iceberg lettuce. Of course, iceberg has that crisp texture though not as much nutritional value.
If you've read my previous review of Burger King's new Chicken Strips, you can probably guess where the shortcoming of BK's Ranch Snack Wrap lies.

The cheese, lettuce, and flour tortilla were spot on; there was a good amount, the cheese was moist, and the lettuce was crisp. The chicken strip was just not very good; it was dry, chewy, and needed some seasoning beyond salt.
The Ranch dressing was fine as well and applied with a fair hand but too salty when combined with the strip.

I think if Burger King had put any other meat on their menu inside the snack wrap (like say Chicken Tenders even), I would have liked it fine but as it was, I can't say I'm a fan.

  1. I hate reading your blog.  It makes me crave food when I am not even hungry.  Since you say this one is not that great, I am hankering for one from McDonalds or Carls Jr.  I feel like BK quality has been on the decline in recent years.  I like McDonalds' snack wrap a lot and Carls Jr is good too, the tortilla is a lot thinner so it feels like a lighter snack when I'm trying to eat less carbs.

  2. I know you shouldn't -have- to ask for it, but if you ask them to make it fresh, it's a whole lot better. Aside from that you're stuck playing the lottery when it comes to actual chicken strip sizes as it seems to vary a bit more than I'd like.

  3. I fear asking for anything to be made fresh, I always worry I'll piss off a stressed employee and they'll mess with my food... but yea I'm probably just paranoid like that.

  4. I think it takes 15 to 20 minutes to fry one up fresh though...
