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.

      RIP Jerry Lewis. I remember watching Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis movies when I was young. He made me laugh as a child.

      I'm almost done with GARO: Crimson Moon. I'm pretty disappointed with it. Its no where near as good as GARO: The Animation was. The story is pretty meh, and they reduced the golden night to some sailor moon type format where he only gets to transform at the end of the episode and wins in 2-3 moves. It reminds me how Blood-C is inferior to Blood+ as they both take place in similarly unconnected time frames.

      I just finished Drifters on Funimation. Its from the same people that made Hellsing. This was a better product IMO. I honestly don't get all the love for Hellsing as its ending is shit, and a lot of stuff is never resolved. The premise of Drifters is that legendary historical warriors/fighters/tacticians passed on to a different realm when they died and end up on the good or evil side of a new war. You have people like Rasputin, Anastasia, Joan of Arc, Sundance Kid, Butch Cassidy, and a lot of Japanese legends... most notably Oda Nobunaga. Whats strikingly controversial is that Jesus is pretty much an evil overlord, even though they cover his face and call him the "Black King" the fact that he has holes in his hands, and can heal, and produce food out of nothing makes me laugh when I looked it up and the wiki says "His identity is still a mystery". You can just listen to the stuff he says and know who it is. Anyways, the action is great, the gore is on the same level of Hellsing, and the story is really good. Season 2 should be coming out in the future.

      I got an interesting email from Amazon about something called the Carnivore Club. It looks pretty neat, but damn It's too expensive for my comfort. I'll probably sign up for 1 month and cancel just to get a box. I've never been apart of any subscription box service before because I don't need random junk every month that I might or might not like. But I can eat this stuff, that all looks really delicious. If I could afford $55 a month for some snack meats, I'd do it. What caused me to post about this was the fact that it has two 1 star reviews written by angry vegans posting about how sick and disgusting it was, and how they are promoting cancer and cardiovascular disease.
      I remember back in the day I always looked forward to Christmas because we use to get those boxes with all the cured meats and smoked cheeses in them. They're pretty hard to find now, at least in the quality that they were back then. Now you just get some basic summer sausage and Kraft tier cheese. The Carnivore Club reminds me of the old fancy ones minus the cheese.... hmmm I wonder if there is a cheese club?

      I ended up spending my entire weekend cleaning my basement. Theres a good chance I might be moving to a different house in a month or so and I wanted to make sure the move would go smooth. Its amazing how much junk accumulates in a basement. I was planning on playing some gw2 this weekend.. and it never happened.
