Three varieties of the Chicken McWrap have become the newest permanent addition to the fast food chain’s menu. The chain said the McWraps use the same type of flour tortillas and chicken as its snack wraps, which were introduced in 2006. But two of the new McWraps will come with cucumbers, which the company says will mark the first time the vegetable will be part of its core menu, reports the Associated Press.
The McWraps will come in Chicken & Bacon, Sweet Chili Chicken and Chicken & Ranch varieties. Dan Coudreaut, director of culinary innovation of McDonald’s, says the wraps will be a new “platform” and that different varieties are already in the pipeline. These could include spicy or Cajun flavors, he said. In Europe, he noted, there is a shrimp McWrap.
“It’s the benefit of McDonald’s being a global system,” he said, noting that the company can take successful items from around the world and adapt them to other markets. The Sweet Chili Chicken McWrap, for instance, was first offered in Australia.
Although the chicken McWraps officially launch nationwide next week, the company says many restaurants already have them.
