Snacks McDonalds Premium McWrap

I used to like McDonald's food. It was cheap, fast and filling. But as I've gotten older and tried more food I've realized how horrible McDonald's food actually is. I was one of the people that would eat their premium angus burgers. Ever since they stopped serving those and the Chicken Selects, McDonald's menu has not been appealing to me in the slightest. One of the few things I would still eat there are the crispy chicken McWraps. Even now I would still eat those. When I saw McDonalds had Premium versions I assumed it would be a better quality McWrap. In a sense it is, but at the same time it isn't.

The basic McWrap and the Premium McWrap are very different products. The largest difference is the size. These things are pretty big. However, like most new fast food items, they start large and then shrink in size over a couple years once people get hooked on them. These pictures were taken when they first came out which is why it looks as good as it does. These McWraps come in three flavors. I ordered the Sweet Chili. The package I received indicates that it is the Chicken Bacon flavor.. And once I started eating it, I realized I was eating the Ranch. So I suppose this can be a review for all three flavors because the incompetent employees had no idea what they were giving me or how to take an order correctly.

The package has a rip away tab that works nicely. I was quite surprised to see that the McWrap looked exactly like the picture on the drive through menu. I'm sure they won't look like that in the future considering I've never purchased a Big Mac that actually looks like the picture.

This McWrap has all the premium ingredients you would expect to see in a good salad and that is where the problem lies. This tastes like a salad. With ranch dressing, plentiful leafs, tomato and cucumber this is a full blown premium salad in a wrap. If anything, the chicken is the odd ingredient in it. Because my wrap was so fresh, the chicken was freshly fried and the wrap was assembled. However, they should let that chicken cool down a bit because a warm salad does not taste appealing to me. Hot cucumbers and tomatoes against a slightly greasy piece of chicken threw the experience off for me. While most of the ingredients are cool, the hot chicken causes temperature differences throughout the entire wrap. After eating one of these, I won't eat another. For the same price I'd rather buy 3 of the regular McWraps which are smaller and focus more on the chicken with no large salad ingredients.

Should you eat these?

Maybe. It depends on if you like salad because this is definitely a leafy green filled item. If you do try one, I recommend ordering it with no cucumber as those hot cucumber slices did not taste appealing in texture.

      My parents visited me over the weekend. Had a great time.  I wish I lived in the same state as the rest of my family so I could see them all more often.

      Finally got around to watching Black Mirror since, you know, I'm bored because I can't work (and as much as I try I just can't bring myself to play anything game wise outside of FFXIV and a little bit of Destiny (I'm stuck at 267 and have no urge to do the Exotic quests and I really don't want to level another character right now)).
      Gotta say this is definitely one of my favorite shows now. Really love how they're stand alone episodes that have no interconnection with each other (well they seem to all take place in the same year and same world (based on little hints I picked up in various episodes) but they're completely separate stories of their own). Some of the episode are really fucked up (the last episode of season 3, while not fucked up, is pretty fucking dark and has given rise to a new fear for me (saying what it is will ruin it if you haven't seen it), still one of my favorite episodes though) and some are really well thought out and emotional (the San Junipero episode is really fucking good).
      All around it's a great fucking series (better be it's British, yeah I have a thing for British television) and I highly recommend it. Figured I'd start Stranger Things this weekend since it sounds like I'll be out of work for another week (according to my surgeon's nurse when I talked to her on the phone, I'll find out more tomorrow) and be ready for when season 2 airs in Oct.

      My mattress has been killing my back and sides for over a year now. I kept adjusting how I was sleeping, got a mattress pad, etc. Screw this thing. I bought a mattress in a box from walmart.com for cheap. $140. I thought about getting a memory foam one but I read that they trap heat too easily so I went with a Slumber 1 brand coil spring.
      Sure as hell this mattress showed up in a box. It was vacummed sealed in a bag, folded and rolled up. When I broke that plastic seal it inflated so damn fast that it made a whistling noise thru the plastic bag as I was cutting it open. lol. It feels pretty comfortable so far but I have to let it air out for "full recovery" for 48 hours. I'd have rather gotten an expensive really nice beauty rest mattress or something else from a mattress store, but I'm tight on funds. This seems decent enough for now.

      Well yesterday was fun. Had really bad abdominal pain and ended up in the ER only to find out I had acute appendicitis and had to have surgery (all in all spent 10 hours in the ER, got home at 4:30 this morning). Now I'm in pain and out of work for at least a week. At least I get Vicadin as my pain killer (whenever my mother pucks the prescription up, I can't drive for the next week so yea).
      Guess it's time to get caught up on my anime and game backlogs.
