The McDonald’s Premium McWrap has vanished from the restaurant’s menu. It hasn’t been available in years, which has led a number of customers to ask the obvious question. Why is the McWrap gone and what is the reasoning for this decision?
This employee is here to explain it all and the rationale for this choice is actually a heck of a lot simpler than you would think.
As it turns out, the McDonald’s Premium McWrap is an absolute pain in the butt for employees to prepare. According to one viral video, the menu item was the “most complicated” order for workers to fulfill.
Stephen Patula (TikTok user @patulafamilymcdonalds) broke it all down in a now-viral TikTok video. He works for McDonald’s and is letting us in on all of the details about preparing the food.

As Patula says in his video, the Premium McWraps “tasted awesome” but took a long time to prepare. That said, the wraps are no longer a problem for McDonald’s employees, as the item was discontinued in 2019.
Additionally, Patula noted that the menu is now pretty straightforward in general. Like many fast-food chains, McDonald’s simplified its offerings during the pandemic, making it easier for employees to prep and finish meals.
But the Premium McWrap clearly holds a special place in the hearts of many McDonald’s fans. Several TikTokers weighed in to ask when — or if — the item will come back.
“Bring back the wrap!” one user wrote.
“I miss the wraps so much I’m gonna cry,” another added.
“I agree!” another TikToker wrote. “I hated making them but they tasted so good.”
Patula’s clip is just the latest McDonald’s “secret” to go viral on TikTok.
