Why McDonalds Should Bring Back the Snack Wraps!

Let me set the scene for you: it’s 2016 and I  just got out of school. I have after school extracurriculars and am unable to go home just yet. Once over, I had to find a place to chill and perhaps grab a bite to eat. Of course, I head to the cheapest place; McDonald’s. I met up with my friends there and we all ordered our usual meals of choice, and they all include this one particular item; the Snack Wrap, a fan favorite amongst my peers. We would sit at a table and take a bite. Gnawing into the soft tortilla wrapped chicken, cheese, and shredded lettuce. We didn’t know then that it would be one of the last times we’ll ever have that experience again.

McDonald’s is not the best place to get your food, let’s be honest, it’s not even a good place to get your food. It is, however, cheap, and easily accessible. There’s always one thing from McDonald’s that people choose as their staple to get from the fast-food chain, and for a generation, that was the crispy chicken snack wrap. It was delicious and compared to other items, it just felt healthier. It was lighter, had a different taste and, as the “snack” part of the name implies, was easy to take with you on the go. However, something, or someone, at McDonald’s convinced the higher ups that pulling the Snack Wrap off the menu (at least in American stores) was a good idea. I’m here to say that they were wrong. While it’s not new for McDonald’s to pull things off the menu and eventually bring it back, just look at the McRib; the wrap should’ve never been removed. 

The Snack Wrap isn’t just a staple that reminds me of my adolescent days that I took for granted, they added variety to McDonald’s menu. Variety is very needed today where every fast-food spot wants to copy the success of Chick-fil-A and Popeyes with their chicken sandwiches. Even McDonald’s, a place that has had a chicken sandwich (McChicken) for years added a new one, that isn’t even that good. McDonald’s used to be in the forefront of the competition, but now plays catchup putting out items a year after the hype has already died. There is still hype for the snack wrap to return, however. Just look it up only and you’ll see it; thousands of people asking, demanding that the fast-food chain brings back the once beloved item. It’s time McDonald’s listened up: please bring back the Snack Wraps.

Ps: The crispy Snack Wrap is and always will be better than the grilled!

    Wings Vs Pizza: The Search for the Superior Comfort Food

    The concept of comfort food is a little tricky because there really isn’t a set definition or qualifications for comfort food outside of the idea that it should provide a nostalgic or sentimental value to someone. For me, two of my favorite comfort foods are chicken wings and pizza, but I’ve always had a hard time deciding which is better. That is why today, I will be pondering the epic and unanswered question: which is better, chicken wings or pizza?

    The Rise of Grocery Delivery Apps

    If you walk around anywhere in New York City, you might’ve started to notice people riding on bikes or scooters with bright helmets and big delivery bags on their backs. If not, then you’ve might’ve seen huge ads about apps that will allow you to order your groceries and get them within 15 minutes. This is because we are in the boom of a new industry: grocery delivery services.

    The Strange Case of the Taco Bell Wings

    So, in the last week, or two, all I could see on my timeline were memes and jokes about the newest addition to Taco Bell’s lineup of food they offer at their chains: chicken wings. At first, it was humorous to think about it, why would Taco Bell start serving chicken wings? It was even funnier to imagine who would be the brave souls to actually eat those wings to let the rest of us know just how good, or bad, they are.

    The Versatility Of Gnocchi

    If you’re like me, you love simple, easy to make recipes. The less ingredients needed, the better; the less cleanup, the better. For this, look no further than gnocchi, an Italian pasta made of cooked mashed potatoes, flour, and eggs. Some recipes also include ricotta, but it’s not necessary. As painless as they are to make, gnocchi is even easier to use in pretty much any recipe. There are about a thousand different ways to not only make these squat little shells, but also to use them.

    The Issue With Oxtail And Its Increasing Price

    Okay, the title for this article might be a little misleading, so let me clear this up from the start: I don’t have a single issue with oxtail. It’s great; it’s actually delicious. The true issue comes with the price for oxtail. If you’re someone like me who frequents Black twitter, you would often see people complain about the at times absurd prices for oxtail as the years have gone on. Now there is a very, very simple explanation for this: it’s becoming more popular.
