but will no doubt be unfulfilling
if you ate one every lunch time you will not live to 50
They're better than toast
I love the texture especially when generously spread with hummus.
However they never fill me up enough.
less filling than a similar priced sandwich
+ much less carb
Or salad. A lunchtime rs always loads of people getting salad. Then they smother it in cheese and mayonnaise. Bit pointless tbh.
Once you've picked the spring onion out obvs
but you would need to eat about 20 of them for a decent lunch
The spring onion is what makes it great
Absolutely revolting and just the slightest bit of it in any dish makes the whole thing taste of it.
I am writing to express my dis-satisfaction, dismay and disappointment at the way I have been treated by staff at Tesco Express. I purchased a £2.40 'Hoisin Duck Wrap' from a Tesco Express in Leeds only to discover that one of the two wraps contained nothing but a few leaves of lettuce (Lettuce that was soggy and bland, but I digress). Due to the nature of shopping on the go, I was no longer near the original place of purchase upon discovering the emptiness of the wrap. Luckily, Tesco being a national business meant that I could stop by at another shop on my way home, where I expected to be able to swap the product.
How wrong I was. Had I known the furore I was letting myself in for I would have thrown the 'wrap' (and let's face it, a wrap was all it was) into the bin and returned home hungry, but, believing in a fair and just society I stopped off at the Tesco Express on Manningham Lane, Bradford.
The first reaction to my empty wrap was a lingering and accusatory stare, capped off by a sarcastic smirk that seemed to be telling me to 'get on my bike'. She informed me that it would have to be taken back to the original place of purchase. Surely not I argued, surely Tesco as a whole would look after it's customers by taking ownership of it's mistakes, and not pawning them off at the customer's expense. No, the manager was quick to inform me, this is not the case. He briefly offered to provide a refund, before just as quickly changing his mind and, in a decidedly insulting tone of voice asked us to return to the Leeds store and make our complaints there.
Now, I am not usually one to let events and circumstances take a personal toll, but in this case I could not help but feel both victimised and belittled by the disinterested and downright rude staff members of the Manningham Lane branch, and it has weighed heavily on my mind since, especially on opening the fridge and seeing the offending article staring back at me, waiting to be taken the 13 mile journey back to the Leeds store.
I hope that you can appreciate my position, both as a loyal customer of Tesco and as a human being.
I await your response, and I must say that until I receive a satisfactory reply I will be imposing an embargo on my oft-frequent visits to Tesco.
Year tldr, boring anyway
sorry about your wrap
but to be honest, that's a pretty shit letter. You sound mildly peeved, when the required style is "incandescent with rage".
but i have a lot of time for the new chicken and chorizo square wrap from tesco
Have been wondering what to cook with it later on.
This thread has solved the puzzle.
WRAPS it is!
But just thought I'd share that with you.
Wraps are excellent.
(Ones from shops are probably shit, never had one, because they look like they'd be a bit shit)
second only to subs
but they need to up their filling game if they expect to stand a chance against a regular sandwich
in fact Wraps have the potential to hold more then your bog standard sarnie due to greater structure integrity
red curry tofu with rice.
Actually think I'm in love.
or similar contraption? If not then GTFO
From Greggs. Southern fried chicken with sweet corn, cheese and BBQ sauce. THREE POUNDS AND TWENTY FIVE PENCE. I feel robbed. I could have got a whole boots meal deal for that much. ItI was good though.
Favourite filling is tuna (out of a tin, in spring water but drained first obv), a boiled egg, lettuce, tomato, jalapenos, and guacamole (squeezy bottle) or mayonnaise.
Tastes amazing and if you have it a few days a week you can do it quite cheaply. Also much more filling and healthy than your average tesco wrap.
head to youtube, can't believe how long I've been doing a shit job of this.
I hate sandwiches unless they're either heated or they've been made mere seconds before I eat them. Otherwise the bread gets soaked in evil. Wraps don't seem to suffer in the same way.
I like a tomato in a sandwich, but it needs to be introduced at the latest possible phase else it will ruin your day.
wraps taste great, but with a price like that they just aren't worth it. And it's not like they're difficult to make!
