First Look: How Many Calories in McDonald’s Angus Snack Wrap

This post originally appeared on our blog on Aug. 4, 2010. I’m reposting it because, until my more recent posts about McDonald’s smoothies, it was our most read posting. Like it or not, people want information about McDonald’s, so this falls under the category of us bringing you news you want to know about. We also strive, however to bring you health and nutrition news you need to know about, so we encourage you to read more of those posts while you’re visiting with us. This is one of a series of reposts Tony and I are doing to celebrate our blog’s 18-month anniversary Sept. 7.

I’m not normally a fan of McDonald’s burgers. But today I visited the McDonald’s near my office intending to get a salad only to notice McD now has Angus burger wraps. Each one has half of a third-pound Angus burger. There are three varieties that come with a variety of other adornments, such as cheese, mushrooms, etc. I asked for the beef only, no mayo, no nothing. I also bought two and then combined the two halves of beef into one wrap.

The end result wasn’t bad, definitely more tasty than a normal McDonald’s burger on its tiny bun. But I was surprised when I got back to the office and checked the McDonald’s Web site to see the nutrition info for the new wrap. The product isn’t listed in the nutrition section. I had to find a chicken wrap and an Angus burger and deconstruct them to get my calorie count, salt content, etc.

I searched the Web and couldn’t find this elsewhere so allow us to be the first to tell the world. Here is the calorie count and other nutritional info for a McDonald’s Angus snack wrap with half an Angus burger added to the half in the wrap and no condiments included:

Calories: 460 (320 from the burger, the rest the wrap)
Calories from Fat: 250
Total Fat: 27g
Saturated fat: 2.5g
Trans Fat: 2g
Cholesterol: 140 mg
Sodium: 410 mg
Carbs: 2g
Protein: 34g
Calcium: 21g

Would love to hear what you think of this product. Also would love to hear from McDonald’s once it has the nutritional info for this product posted.
