Many employees were very happy after learning that McDonald’s had decided to remove this food item off their menu a few years ago.
Well according to a viral video, the McDonald’s Premium McWrap was the “most complicated” order for workers to make.
User Stephen Patula (@patulafamilymcdonalds), who works for his family’s McDonald’s franchise, created the now-viral video as well as runs a popular TikTok page answering questions about the food chain.
On TikTok he could be heard saying it’s ‘literally awful to make’, so here’s what you need to know about this nightmare of a product.
Despite it being too difficult for employees to make, unknown to the customers, many were fans of the sandwich and did not want to see it go.
And while the wraps “tasted awesome” as he mentions in his video, they were “literally awful to make.”
Obviously we can understand why employees were happy to see this item off the menu, as time is of the essence in the fast food industry.
“When COVID first happened, McDonald’s limited their menu to make operations a little bit easier. So, right now, there is nothing really too complicated,” Patula said in the viral video. “But back in the day, those premium wraps were literally awful to make. They tasted awesome. They were just so complicated and time-consuming to make.”
“It’s the McWrap I’m talking about, not the snack wraps. The McWrap wasn’t difficult to make, just time-consuming to stuff it in the tiny box.”
In response, many users left comments on Patula’s video. The following were highly rated.
“Premium wraps have been off the menu for years now.”
“I just miss the crispy chicken ranch snack wrap,” wrote one sorrowful TikTok user.
“Wait, the wraps were complicated? The only difference from a burger was wrapping a tortilla instead of closing up the bun.”
“I mean, that is true (as a former McDonald’s employee), but the wraps were so good. I miss the wraps.”
“What’s the most efficient way to order a quarter pounder with cheese without cheese? Every time I do that in the drive-thru, it throws everybody off.”
Commenters assured the person to “order a quarter hamburger, or at least that’s what we do.” She continued to explain, “It’s a separate option on our menu screens.”
Now we can put to rest the reasoning behind why the fast food giant got rid of this popular menu item.
I think I speak for all of us when I say that fast food should be fun and not the nightmare Patula described.
