The Trendy Flatbread You Didn't Know Walmart Bakery Created

Remember when hybrid foods were all the rage? Everyone and every food seemed to want in on this trend. It spurred bakers to really get creative combining things like donuts and croissants to form cronuts and pies baked inside cakes to birth an even tastier dessert called a pake (via The Star). And then there were bagels and croissants united in baking bliss to create a cragel or baissant, depending on who you asked (via Taste Tomorrow). Honestly, this trend had us conjuring up memories of a Seinfeld episode where Kramer and George's dad fight over the naming of their bra for men. We were team manzier, in case you were wondering — yada, yada, yada. 

But bakeries and donut shops are not the only foodies who embraced crossbreeding yummy baked goods. Even Walmart, the retail mega-giant, has gotten in on the hybrid bakery goods act. Yep, you read that right. Walmart is not just a place to shop for your favorite shampoos, conditioners, and snacks. Of course, many know that it's not just a destination for birthday cakes and bananas, it's also a place to buy a unique and interesting creation that brings together two of our favorite carbs to create a flatbread with a lot of potential.

Walmart invented the Crotilla

Breeding a tortilla with a croissant, Walmart created the crotilla back in 2017. Per The Houston Chronicle, an account manager from the PR firm Mitchell, which repped Walmart and its new creation, wrote in an email to the publication, "Forget the bromance, Walmart is bringing some romance ... Destined to be the biggest mashup since 'Sharknado,' the fauxhawk and the Labradoodle, the Crotilla is a combination of a flour tortilla and a flaky butter croissant (pronounced crow-TEE-ah.) So grab a spork, throw on your jorts and get ready to brunch. You'll be the envy of tweens and frenemies alike."

What does it taste like? This trendy bakery addition is described by Food & Wine as "flat, flaky and buttery" and bearing similarities to "paratha" or even Taco Bell's epic creation, the "Gordita shell." Food & Wine went on further to share that Walmart revealed in a press release when they debuted this flatbread that the crotilla is perfect for "breakfast sandwiches and flatbread pizzas, to exciting salad sides and inventive desserts." Brand Eating notes that these crotillas are easy to fold and a Walmart reviewer called them "A must try!" (via Walmart). Sounds yummy to us.
