McDonald's Corp. is adding a permanent new offering to its menu next week: chicken McWraps.
The world's biggest hamburger chain says the new sandwich wrap will come in three varieties - Chicken & Bacon, Sweet Chili Chicken and Chicken & Ranch. The company already offers similar wraps in other parts of the world, including Europe.
The Oak Brook, Ill.-based chain says the wraps range from 360 to 600 calories, depending on whether people pick grilled or deep-fried chicken. They will include cucumbers, the first time the vegetable is making an appearance on the chain's menu.
Dan Coudreaut, director of culinary innovation of McDonald's, says the wraps will be a new "platform" and that new varieties are already in the pipeline.
