The wrap is a finger food made with a soft, circular flatbread rolled around a filling. These flatbreads are usually called tortillas, lavash, pita, or piadina. Depending on the culture the filling can change a lot. It can go from being served cold with cold sliced meat or fish accompanied by lettuce, avocado, tomato, or cheese. Being served warm with different kinds of ham, prosciutto, mozzarella, and other condiments.
The first appearances of the wrap go to the Mexican, Middle Eastern, Greek and Turkish cultures since before the 1900s. In Mexico they call them burritos and it is probably exactly from there that it was then introduced to the USA. Wraps gained popularity in the 1990s. Nonetheless, as it usually happens with culinary inventions, there are multiple sources claiming its invention. Some people say it was invented in a Californian chain called “I love Juicy”. Others say that it was the OVO Bistro who introduced it in 1990.
Nowadays there are multiple fast food chains that serve the wrap in one way or another. There are options for everybody, which is one of the reasons it is so popular and is slowly becoming a staple of the fast food industry.
