TREACHERY!: A Classic Burger McFailure

#1 Posted by rickolus (69 posts) -

 Be warned! My input is entirely prejudice. I mean, how could it not be? See this travesty for yourself:  

The Big Mac Snack Wrap 
    I don't mean to be a burger bigot. I am amiable to a variety of hams, both grilled and steamed. Perhaps even a burger sans bun. But this equipping of a tortilla is a betrayal most foul!

I love the Snack Wraps, especially the Big Mac ones. How varied is that?

Hmm. Probably a 3/10 on a 1-10 scale of eatability.
 
On a 1-10 scale of things I'd put my wiener into, however...

So on a scale from 1 to 10, you'd rate its eatability as a .3?

The quesadilla burger at applebees is amazing.

@ThatFrood: Precisely. Eatability is .3/10, obviously.

I actually had a McDonald's burger today for the first time in at least a year or two... just as average as I remembered it. 
 
But I ain't going anywhere near that yucky wrap.

You'd rate eatability as .03 on a 1 to 10 scale?

A scale of 1-10 isn't used in the eatability scale because 1 would indicate it it still eatable, therefore a new scale is used, 0-10, for eatability.

FAIL. I go to Jack n' the Box over McD any day anyway. This is a new line of disgrace though. A burger is a bun, not a tortilla wrap!

#14 Posted by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

No, Edibility is a 0 to 10 scale. Eatability is a 1 - 10 scale with 1 being spelled "wun."

I'm a fan of quesadilla burgers, and this isn't far off the mark for one of those, so I'll give it the Sparky Buzzsaw Three Nose Hair Seal of Approval.

Looks like someone took a shit in a tortilla.

I had to resort to using a soft flour tortilla once, when I ran out of buns.
 
I have to say, I knew what I was doing was unnatural, and wrong. But I loved it.
 
Now I do it all the time. Especially in the kitchen, with the lights on.
 
I'm in too deep, and unashamed.

if you put burger meat in a tortilla it needs to have a fried egg in there.

Dude, that's just wrong. I'm with you on this one all the way.

#20 Posted by Linkyshinks (9880 posts) -

Scum of the earth.

#21 Edited by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

Yeah, I saw that. 
 
It's as if someone said "Hey, I like the sub-par Big Macs just like the next guy, except for the fact that I can't just shove that shit in a tortilla and call it a day. They should totes sell that at Mickey D's you know what I mean".
 
And voila! You've got yourself the Big Mac Snack Wrap.
 
Out of 10, I give it a "NO".

more...artificial...food. That's not even real food, but neither is most food at fast food restaurants.

I would rate that as zero fireballs out of my character, the Human Torch, since McDonalds sucks in the first place and the Big Mac is the worst.  Burger King all the way and give me a Whopper any day of the week.

I'd try it. Everything in it is what's in a normal hamburger, but now it's in a tortilla, which is just a different type of bread. Big whoop. They could put the hamburger ingredients on a hot dog bun or tortilla chips and it would probably be delicious.
