Chipotle BBQ Snack Wrap with Crispy Chicken, McDonaldâ€™s
I was recently returning home from a country music concert with my son in tow, when Jonathan, 10, said he was hungry for a cheeseburger. Being the easily swayed dad that I am, I steered for the next exit that promised a McDonaldâ€™s.
Falling victim to the â€śwhen in Romeâ€ť philosophy of life, I added a couple of â€ścrispyâ€ť Chicken Snack Wraps to the order. Five minutes later, I returned to the counter for a third.
Three hours later â€" as I was hunched over my â€śthroneâ€ť and trying to get rid of my horrible stomach acid from the spicy Chipotle BBQ Snack Wraps â€" it dawned on me that on wrap may have made a â€śsnackâ€ť but THREE made a mess of my diet and my stomach.
Not that all the nutrition made its way through my belly and into my thighs, belly and butt. But had I kept down my late-night â€śsnackâ€ť I would have racked up (from the Snack Wraps alone) 960 calories, 42g fat, 13.5g saturated fat, 3g trans fat, 75mg cholesterol, 2,340mg sodium, 105g carbs, 6g fiber and 42g protein.
The moral of my story: If you think a men item called a "snack" is a free pass from the usual fast food horrors, itâ€™s you â€" and Mr. Bad Food â€" whoâ€™s not wrapped too tight!
Chew on This: The menu word â€ścrispyâ€ť is a red flagâ€¦ as in â€śWARNING! Fried food dread ahead!â€ť
