Freebie time again!
McDonalds USA sent us another stack of “Be Our Guest” cards for give away to chowtimes’ readers.
This time it is for McDonalds latest addition to the new Snack Wrap Line — the Mac Snack Wrap.
Look at the picture above. What a beauty isn’t it? That is the official media picture of the product. They always look better than the real thing they sell in the restaurant.
I picked up the Mac Snack Wrap on the way home from work today. I just got to taste for myself how it is. Each one costs about $1.90 … or is it $1.60?
You know, I just can’t remember how much I paid for this. Suanne always says that I don’t check each time I use the credit card.
I must admit, I don’t. It’s a guy thing. Most guys never check these sort of things, don’t you think so?
Peeling open the warm flour tortilla, there is half of a normal beef patty. I think it is made with a normal quarter pound patty cut into half.
In it too are the same Big Mac sauce, shredded lettuce, some traces of cheese, a little bit of pickles, and chopped onions. It does not quite look like the official media picture.
I don’t know if you know this. The difference in the Big Mac from the other burgers is … the Big Mac Sauce. It is a closely guarded secret and is as secretive as the recipe for Coca-Cola and Kentucky Fried Chicken. The sauce is believed to be a variant of the Thousand Island dressing.
The bottom side is wrapped up nicely. The warm flour tortilla was pretty good too. Nothing of the flour-y taste, if you know what I mean.
The Mac Snack Wrap is essentially a Big Mac served in a flour tortilla instead of buns. If you like the Big Mac, you will like this — it is similar but a lighter meal than the Big Mac.
Ever since the iconic Big Mac was introduced 40 years ago, the Mac Snack Wrap is McDonald’s first ever evolution of the Big Mac taste.
We have a total of 15 “Be Our Guest” cards to give away. Please note that these cards can only be used in the USA. Even though the Mac Snack Wrap is also available in Canada, these cards are no good here. So these cards are really more for those of you who makes regular border crossing into Washington State.
We will only give away to readers residing in BC simply because of postage costs. We will make a little exception for etranger who had been contributing so much to chowtimes with her comments and recipes.
So, if you want to have one, just email firstname.lastname@example.org your name and address. We will not be forwarding your personal information to McDonalds — so no worries about that!
