REVIEW:

The chicken wrap was very tasty and had many different flavours to it that came from the different spices and also from the yogurt and cheese combination. It is a good and healthy alternative to other fast food sandwiches and burgers. It is full of protein from the chicken, nutrients from the vegetables and calcium from the cheese and yogurt.
