McDonald's introduces snack wrap

McDonald's introduced their new "Snack Wrap" yesterday. They have been testing it in several markets for some time now.

It is unclear if this will be a permanent menu edition or a special promo or seasonal item like the McRib. There is currently no nutritional information available for it.

The Snack Wrap is: crispy chicken, cheddar jack cheese, lettuce and ranch sauce wrapped in a soft flour tortilla. It sells for $1.29.

UPDATE: Nutrition information is now available. The Snack Wrap has 330 calories, 16 grams of fat, 5 grams saturated fat, 2 grams trans fat, 35 mg cholesterol, 780 mg sodium, 33 grams carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 2 grams sugars, and 14 grams protein.

Is it just in the US? or can we found it in Europa?

Just what America needs - another snack packed with fat!

330 calories is not bad. Any food is fattening if you just seat on your ass and do nothing.

Yeah actually 330 calories is not bad.Making a sandwich at home is probably around the same considering the bread alone is at least 120 calories.So I think its a great little snack.

no bad at all...but are we considering the grams of fat? thats 23Gs of fat in 2-3 bites. You will die

You know - I've had it - and it's pretty tasty! And not so bad for you as other choices. Plus you can get it without the ranch dressing, which saves you some calories and fat...

I actually hope it stays on the menu - it's good cheap girlie food. (Though I think guys would like it as well : ) )

I am a workout/nutrition freak. I LOVE snack wraps. Just one can do the job and even not take away your energy. If you sit around all day any food is gonna put the weight on ya!

not bad at all, but it would have been nice if they made two types - crispy chicken and grilled chicken. The crisy chicken tends to be a little salty for some of us who are trying to cut down on salt...but a delicious meal.

today I brought two of the crispy chicken snack wrap with ranch and it was delicious. McDonald's snack wrap tastes better than Kentucky Fried Chicken snackers. Also, how about introduce another snacker with Paul Neuman's Caesar dressing. I know that I would love it!

Snack wraps are the best damn thing McDonald's have come out with since the Big Mac. They're so good, I hardly ever get burgers anymore, and that's all I use to get.

For me, it's the ranch sauce that makes it really tasty. The grill chicken ones are pretty good, too, but I think I prefer the crispy a little more. Something bigger to bite into I guess.

I have a doubt about the fat content in these wraps. I know that their nutritional information is accounting for a full-sized Chicken Select, but in my experience, this has not been the case. I have no idea if it is solely my location or not, but the Snack Wraps that I've had have had what can be described as "mini" Chicken Selects. So, I'd estimate that the fat content is actually a bit lower (maybe only 2 grams or so).

With that being said, this is a delicious little treat.

i really like am obsessed with snack wraps they are so good i mean they're really healthy too i buy them whenever i can and they are a great price i just wish that they can be on the dolloar menu like the six piece nuggets once were. i would be extatic and buy everysingle one in the store if they go on the dolllar menu. Me and my friend Genevieve love the ranch dressing the best. we are so obsessed we even tried making our own but of course it wasent as good as the original! Thank you McDonalds for creating the snack wrap its so delicious!!!

The Grilled Snack wrap with Honey Mustard sports a 260 calories. Not and at all. Get it with bottled water and you are golden.

It´s so great....I´m an addict 8-) could eat it nearly every day!

But in Germany it costs 2€.A little too expensive i think!

I am so addicted to the grilled wrap with ranch. I get one everyday with a large regular iced coffee and I lost 12 pounds from May 08 to June 08. I eat very little carbs the rest of the day. I highly recommend it to those who want to lose weight and still have a great lunch. Only one though... with a regular iced coffee. I prefer it over a steak dinner!

I tried the crispy chicken wrap - so YUMMY. Today I'm going to buy another one or two for my lunch. They are sooooo good. I order it without any dressing and put their hot sauce on it.
