TAKEAWAY wraps may look big, fat and juicy – but are they really all that when you take a bite?

Hungry Katie Brightwell complained to Tesco this week, accusing it of skimping on the ingredients in her turkey wrap.

The contents of Katie’s wrap didn’t look very festiveThe supermarket refunded her for the £2.50 snack, which she said was made up of just two tiny pieces of turkey and a few spinach leaves.

Katie, 33, from Sudbury, Suffolk, left a sarcastic remark on Tesco’s Facebook page, saying: “Definitely don’t need dinner tonight, completely full now.”

The verdict

  • Best average wrap weight, for all four fillings, was Sainsbury’s at 81g
  • M&S wraps were generally pricy and its Chicken Fajita was worst value we found
  • Asda wraps were a little stingy, except for its great-value Bacon & Chicken Caesar
  • Morrisons gives less veggie or duck filling for your buck than spicy or Caesar chicken
