McDonald’s Big Mac Snack Wrap is Back!

"Good things in small packages..."

Well here's some good news for those who love the comfort food goodness of a Big Mac but don't want the extra calories around the hips -- McDonald’s Mac Snack Wrap is back at restaurants nationwide, for a limited time only, through January 2, 2012! The Mac Snack Wrap, the Big Mac’s snack-size counterpart, features half of a quarter pound 100 percent beef patty, the Big Mac special sauce, shredded lettuce, American cheese, pickles and chopped onions wrapped in a soft flour tortilla.

I had a chance to test drive this Mini Mac last week and all I can say is -- all the flavor of the original but half the fat and cals (each wrap as ~350 calories vs ~600 calories in the full sized Big Mac)! Having lived pretty much next door to a McDonald's for the past 5 years (not sure if this is coincidence or cause McD's just has way too many locations), I've taste tested most of their snack wraps, so I was pretty pumped to check out the newest lineup on the menu.
The verdict? Although I still prefer the Angus wraps, you really can't beat the $1.69 price tag on one of these babies (vs. Angus wrap: $2.29). Sorry Mac Snack - but once you go Angus, you just can't go back!  Plus, to be honest, I've never really been a big fan of Big Macs. So even though I'll be sticking with my Angus wraps, I still think the Mac Snack Wrap is a healthier and cheaper alternative to the full sized Big Mac (for the Mac lovers out there) -- after all, we can all afford to save a little more this holiday season!
