McDonalds Premium McWrap

Sledgstone

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.

      This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done.  ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.

      Sigh, I actually had to break down and get a FunimationNow account because half the shows I was planning on watching on CR got pulled yesterday (and I didn't actually realize Funi had the license). Going to go broke if this shit keeps happening >.<

      I still haven't had the time to play any of the GW2 halloween event and it ends tomorrow. but i did get the new entrance to my deck completed. I cut a good chunk of the wood fence off, reinforced it with pieces of 2x4, sanded it and reinforced adjacent parts of the deck with huge deck screws. I borrowed my friend's impact driver. Holy crap I need to buy one of these. That thing is beastly and amazing.
