PHILADELPHIA, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning this April, McDonald's is inviting taste seekers across the Greater Philadelphia Region to unwrap a fresh new flavor experience – the Premium McWrap. The new meal-sized wrap combines fresh vegetables, tasty sauces, and juicy chicken breast filet in a warm tortilla. It's served in a convenient, hand-held package to fit the busy on-the-go lifestyle.
"The introduction of McDonald's new entree line Premium McWrap is part of our ongoing effort to offer our customers new, relevant menu options and flavors they are looking for," said John Durante, President, McDonald's Owner/Operator Association of the Greater Philadelphia Region. "We know people today are looking for freshly prepared, meal options that taste great and are convenient. With its abundance of ingredients and unique flavors in an easy-to-eat package, Premium McWrap is sure to satisfy."
All Premium McWrap varieties come with grilled or crispy chicken, spring greens and shredded lettuce in warm tortilla wrap. Customers can choose from three flavors:
- Sweet Chili Chicken McWrap: sweet chili sauce, creamy garlic sauce, and sliced cucumbers
- Chicken & Bacon McWrap: creamy garlic sauce, bacon, cheddar jack cheese, and tomato
