It's a wrap for mini mac

McDonald’s Snack Wrap Mac is being tested in 1,400 McDonald’s in Canada and in Houston. It is a mini version of the Big Mac but instead of being in a toasted sesame seed bun, the mini version is being wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. Is this a marriage made in heaven: two trends of the wimpie-styled sandwich and the easy to carry, flour wrapped snack? They are reported to be selling for $1.49 in Houston.


Yes, I’ll admit I eat at McDonald’s from time-to-time, I need to get my Big Mac fix….it is the special sauce. Back in olden days, in Daraland, before McDonald’s really hit here in Bawlmer, we went to drive-in restaurants. It was Ginos and Ameches and both had there varitations on the Big Mac, at Gino’s it was the Gino Giant. I remember “hanging out” at both drive-ins, shades of American Graffiti. And yes, there were characters like Harrison Ford, Richard Dreyfuss and Ron Howard – wish I could say I was the Susanne Sommer’s character.

I get pretty stick-in-the-mud as to how I eat my food, there are traditional go-withs in Daraland: fries with beef gravy, shrimp salad on rye, and a sesame seed bun with my "mac".
