McDonald's customers in the U.S. still can't believe that the Snack Wrap is officially gone from the menu — especially after learning that they are still available in other countries. McDonald's quietly pulled the fan-favorite from its offerings over a year ago now, though the pandemic may have kept some people from even realizing they were gone. Read on for some of the funniest reactions to this heartbreak.
For those unfamiliar, a Snack Wrap from McDonald's was just a small tortilla wrap containing breaded or grilled chicken along with cheese, lettuce, ranch dressing and sometimes a few other ingredients. They were known to come and go from the menu and were sometimes not available at certain hours, but fans still relied on them for a quick bite on the go. Back in September, a McDonald's rep told The Takeout that Snack Wraps' erratic availability was a sign of their gradual departure from the menu. They said: "Snack Wraps were removed from our national menus in the U.S. several years ago, at which point local markets and restaurants could decide to offer them locally based on customer preferences. Last June, Snack Wraps were phased out as a local offering."
"At this time, there are no plans to bring Snack Wraps back to nationwide menus in the U.S. or Canada," the rep concluded. Fans have mourned for their snack wraps, but many are singing a different tune now that they've heard they are still available in some overseas markets. Here is a look at how the revelation impacted some Twitter users when they found out.
Knowing that McDonald's is active on social media, users were not shy about asking the company directly to bring snack wraps back.prevnext

Dear Father Christmas,
I’ve tried my hardest to be a good boy this year. It hasn’t been easy but I’d like to think I’ve made the nice list.
I won’t ask for much, peace and comfort for my family and for McDonalds to bring the snack wrap back.
Thank you.— pablo wilde (@shuyguy_) December 23, 2021

In Canada and other countries, McDonald's sells an array of wraps now that are larger than snack wraps. Fans assured their American counterparts that these aren't the same thing, and said that they aren't missing much.prevnext

Finally, some users noted that the changes to the McDonald's menu have mainly impacted the affordable, easy options from the menu, leaving only expensive meals in their wake. They wished items like the snack wrap would take higher priority.prev
