McDonald’s Honey Mustard Snack Wrap

I wonder what’s a worse fate for a chicken: To be a grilled or crispy piece of chicken in the new McDonald’s Honey Mustard Snack Wrap.

Sure, there are even worse fates for chickens, like bird flu, being used in some screwed up way in a Jackass stunt, Chicken McNuggets, dancing naked in the Peter Gabriel “Sledgehammer” music video, or being eaten by Nicole Richie, then being regurgitated by Nicole Richie.

Unlike the original Ranch Snack Wrap, which only comes with crispy chicken, the honey mustard one come with either crispy chicken or grilled chicken, which is probably healthier than the crispy version, unless McDonald’s has found a way to grill things by sticking them in hot oil.

Along with your choice of chicken, the Honey Mustard Snack Wrap also comes with shredded cheddar jack cheese, lettuce, a sweet and tangy honey mustard sauce wrapped in a flour tortilla, and for some, it also comes with the guilt of knowing that you’re eating another McDonald’s product despite your promise to swear off of it after watching the documentary Super Size Me.

After trying both the crispy and grilled Honey Mustard Snack Wrap, it’s hard to determine which one I like better. It’s like trying to choose which Olsen twin I like best, because just like Mary-Kate and Ashley, both versions of the Honey Mustard Snack Wrap look alike, are kinda pale on the outside, and don’t have much meat in them.

The crispy version has 320 calories, 15 grams of fat, 4.5 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 30 milligrams of cholesterol, 750 milligrams of sodium, 34 grams of carbs, 1 gram of dietary fiber, and 14 grams of protein.

The grilled version has 260 calories, 9 grams of fat, 3.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 45 milligrams of cholesterol, 800 milligrams of sodium, 27 grams of carbs, 1 gram of dietary fiber, and 18 grams of protein.

Both versions are about six or seven inches long, which is either small, big, or just right, depending on how big your hands or cock is. For me, the size of the Honey Mustard Snack Wrap was wayyyyyyyy too small and I wished that it was a more reasonable nine to ten inches. But then again what do you expect for some thing that costs just $1.29?

So in the end, which Honey Mustard Snack Wrap do I prefer and which is the worst fate for a piece of chicken, crispy or grilled?

Well, the crispy version tastes better, but the grilled one is healthier. However, the honey mustard sauce had kind of a weird sweet deli mustard spicy taste to it, so it turns out that the worst fate for a piece of chicken would be to end up in a Honey Mustard Snack Wrap and I prefer neither the crispy nor grilled versions of it and I’d rather go buy the much better original Ranch Snack Wrap instead.

I’ll leave the Honey Mustard Snack Wraps for Nicole Richie to regurgitate.

Pros: Now able to choose between grilled and crispy chicken. Decent price. Grilled is healthier. Crispy is better tasting.

  1. Obviously the worst fate for a chicken is to be in one of those corny budweiser superbowl ads.

  2. I have to agree with Marvo. I recently got the grilled version and it was borderline nasty. I’ll stick to the Ranch Snack Wrap from now on.

  3. Well, my weaknesses lie elsewhere, but since even their fries contain beef, that isn’t hard for me. I suppose I probably wouldn’t give up beer even if I found out it completely froze my colon up. Seven inches is totally respectable, totally respectable (I keep telling myself that at least).

  4. The only thing I ever have from McDonald’s is their salads. Of course, if you get the crispy chicken and regular dressing, it’s about as healthy as a Big Mac, but it does have more fiber.

  5. My friend and I went to McDonald’s for lunch right after watching Super Size Me. That film didn’t bother me at all. But I’m also the type to wait in a 20 minute line for $8 fish and chips at Marine World (which I did, instead of a 4 minute $4 hot dog line).

  6. Eww…honey mustard. To me, that’s just a bastard child of condiments.

    I love the Ranch snackwrap, although in any case, it’s mostly 80% tortilla. But it’s a good munchie product.

  7. Those don’t look half bad. I don’t know about you, but after seeing Super Size Me, I actually wanted a Big Mac and french fries. However, I will probably NEVER eat another Big Mac again after the one I had last weekend. The meat was gritty and mealy and very salty and the whole thing was DROWNING in special sauce. I ended up throwing most of it away. Just thinking about it now almost makes me start to gag and throw up in my mouth! Baaaaaaaaaaaaa! ICK!

  8. Super Size Me did nothing but remind me to go buy a Big Mac. Of course three meals of fast food a day will mess you up, that’s why you have to be like me and only eat it 2.5 times a day and then have a salad before you sleep.

    I generally find KFC’s snacker to be the more enjoyable fast food item with “snack” in the name, so I stick to that.

  9. I’m surprised you didn’t give this a big zero out of 5…totally left you empty inside–amazingly just like Nicole Richie, but maybe, just maybe, unlike her, you won’t die alone.

  10. Being black, 7 inches is waaaay to small. I tried the crispy one a few weeks ago and it was all crust and no meat. Kinda like Nicole Richie.

  11. I have not eaten in McDonald’s this year – Super Size Me confirmed my reservations about too much fast food. I don’t think the wraps available here – what they have here is a ‘McRice Burger’. I got to try a similar product in KFC – the Go-Go Sandwich which comes with Caesar (which I prefer) or Dragon dressing. Honey Mustard Chicken can be delish if made from ‘scratch’.

  12. “Healthy fast food” has always been an oxymoron to me.
    I always imagine the McDonalds “chefs” yucking it up whenever someone orders a healthy food item; they then proceed to apply extra oil and mayo while preparing the “health” food….

  13. Hmm….The only thing I didn’t like about the grilled honey-mustard wrap was that they gave me too much lettuce, and the cheese tasted old.

    I guess then that about half of my sandwich sucked!

  14. I’ve been a diehard Mickey D’s chocolate shake fan since I was a kid… . But ahh, the joys of innkeeping, cook everything mostly in house… But this is review site is a great find for ideas and recommendations

  15. Malt – No, it would be worse if they were in the CareerBuilder commercial.

    Dustin – I’m LOVE the hot mustard sauce for the Chicken McNuggets. I think that would’ve been a better sauce.

    Webmiztris – Yes, stay away from them, unless you’re Winnie the Pooh and absolutely must have something with honey.

    L’il E – Your weakness is kryptonite?

    Chuck – If I eat a salad I will probably get the Asian Salad, because I must continue to represent.

    LaR – Hilarious or sad, depending on the size of your hands or cock.

    Barb – Mmm…Big Mac. I know you want one! Ooooh, french fries! Mmm…They’re so tasty. Did my temptation work?

    Mad Cow – Yes, six or seven inch hands are pretty substantial for Asians.

    klew – Mmm…Malt vinegar on fish and chips.

    Brie – No, I believe the bastard child of condiments is Miracle Whip.

  16. Stacie – Remember that dude who eats nothing but Big Macs in the movie. At first, I thought that was kind of gross, but then I had a craving for a Big Mac.

    Ace N. – The “s” in Snacker stands for small.

    Domokun – Wait. She’s not dead. She sure looks dead. Isn’t she a zombie?

    luckinflux – Wow. You must have some really big hands!

    michelle – Yes, the sauce is what killed it for me. I’ve tasted some really good honey mustard sauces over the years, but the one in the Snack Wrap sucks hard.

    DJ At Work – Of course, rarely anything goes in her mouth.

    pego – I’m really waiting for healthy pizza from Pizza Hut.

    Angel H. – Nah, just say the whole thing sucked.

    GP – Hi GP in Montana! The question I want to ask you is: Can you make a Mickey D’s chocolate shake in your house? Also, you just me a craving for a McDonald’s chocolate shake.

    Sep – Good, because you shouldn’t love it.

  17. Obviously the worst fate for a chicken is to be in one of those corny budweiser superbowl ads.

    Or being set on fire, like in the upcoming Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie.

    So does the crispy chicken wrap taste more or less like a giant McNugget wrapped in a tortilla?

  18. Marvo – Well, I’m sure a few 6 or 7 inch (plus 9-10) things have gone in her mouth, but we don’t know that for sure since she hasn’t released any celeb-porn tapes like her disease-ridden friend Paris Hilton.

  19. L’il E – I believe that’s what Homer Simpson might say.

    Toni – Actually a giant McNugget wrapped in a tortilla with HOT MUSTARD sauce would totally ROCK!!! I love the hot mustard sauce.

    DJ At Work – I’m pretty sure also in every hole possible.
